MALVERN Vale won 4-1 at Gala Wilton thirds in Cheltenham League Division Four.

Kieran Kinsella, Joe Dallow, Joe Turner and Ashley Dallow scored with Luke Henney voted man of the match for Vale who visit Welland Reserves on Saturday.

Vale have signed Miguel Passaro with striker Toby Boswell moving to Malvern Vale Academy.

Malvern Vale Academy beat Cheltenham Saracens thirds 5-1.

Due to the continued unavailability of their home pitch at Vale, the closest the side could find a pitch was TDMS Centre, Evesham.

The unfamiliar surroundings didn't appear to effect Vale however and as against Welland the week before they started brightly and applied pressure early on.

After just two minutes Ben Goode won a free-kick on the right just outside the box and Anthony Cakebread stepped up to fire home, visiting keeper Paul Meegan may have been slightly disappointed he didn't do better.

On 10 minutes Vale doubled their advantage when Mario Vieira took a free-kick on the left wing and Andre Rodrigues was left unmarked to head home from the edge of the six-yard box.

Vale grew in confidence and started to shoot from long range, however, Meegan wasn't troubled as Ash Griffiths, Cakebread and Goode all missed.

Midway though the half however, left-back Alen Damadzic made it two goals in as many games as he linked up well with a one-two with Vieira which saw him one-on-one with Meegan and he cooly slotted home.

On 28 minutes Vale made it four when Cakebread worked well down the right before cutting in and firing towards goal, Goode managed to get on the ball and in turn wrong-footed Meegan.

With the constant rain overhead the pitch begun to cut up which made life harder for Vale who were attempting to keep the ball down and get in behind the Saracens defence.

Before half-time, Edward Voce penetrated the Vale offside trap but was unable to reach the ball ahead of George Weaver in the Vale goal.

Vale struggled to find the same fluidity they had in the first half-hour and Saracens therefore came into the game without particularly troubling Weaver.

On 60 minutes however a slight lapse from Craig Morris allowed Voce to find an opening and from outside the box he found the bottom corner past the outstretched arm of Weaver.

This did bring Vale back to life and it was then a case of trying to find a clear opening as Cal Hill, Gav Hodgkins and Griffiths all spurned half-chances to stretch Vale's lead.

With 13 minutes remaining they did find a fifth when Griffiths' neat run created an opening and he squared the ball to Rodrigues who was left with a simple finish for his second of the game.

Vale travel to Smiths Athletic Reserves on Saturday looking to extend their winning run in the league in the first of three away games on the spin.
