No joy for Joe in first match in charge
7:26pm Sunday 3rd February 2008 in Sport
Malvern Town 1, Dunstable Town 5
MALVERN Town crashed to a heavy defeat as Joe Rawle took charge of his first league game since taking the job on a permanent basis.
Despite having the first chance of the match, Malvern were 3-0 down inside 15 minutes.
In the third minute Chris Marsh rounded Malvern's keeper Paul Wyatt and slotted the ball home, before Nick Perrin calmly hit home his first of the match five minutes later.
Perrin netted his second on 15 minutes when he slotted home Marsh's cross from six yards.
Perrin missed the chance to get his hat-trick just before the break when he sent his free header sailing over.
The visitors made it 4-0 two minutes into the second period when Jonathan Barnett was on target.
Things got worse for the Langland Stadium outfit as Joel Skyers handled the ball on the line.
Skyers saw red and Marsh slammed home the spot kick in the 50th minute.
In the 70th minute a suicidal back pass by a Malvern defender saw Wyatt clear at Barnett's feet before he denied Michael O'Neill.
Malvern grabbed a late consolation goal when Tom Lacey netted a penalty in second half stoppage-time.
