Swanwick Pentrich Road reserves marched in to the next round of the county cup after crushing top flight MRA Pastures side 6-1.

The opening ten minutes was a very scrappy affair, with neither side managing to get to grips with the slick Rolls-Royce pitch.

However, with 15 minutes gone the visitors managed to take the lead when Mark Waghorn bundled the ball home from a well delivered corner.

This lead was then doubled when a nice one-two was converted by Swan’s midfielder Chris Turner.

Just Before half-time the gap became three, when Pastures were caught on the break.

With many of the home side more interested in appealing for a free-kick on Lewis Wilson, which the referee waved away. David Robinson was the man to finish off the well worked move that began in the Swanwick goal-mouth.

The half-time break saw Pastures striker Lewis Wilson shown a red card, just after the manager had subbed him off. This was a sign of pure frustration which spread throughout the home side for the duration of the second half.

Swanwick coach Andy Worrall, still demanded possession and his footballing ethos was soon rewarded by Richard Jeffery, who manoeuvred himself onto a well delivered cross from the left wing.

David Robinson continued with his excellent run of form, by scoring two more and completing his hat-trick to the delight of Andy Worrall in the Swans dugout.

But Worrall was not happy, however, when the Swanwick defence took it upon themselves to over play and were punished by the Pastures striker who was waiting for an opportunity for a consolation goal.
