MALVERN Town registered their biggest win of the season in emphatic style on Saturday as they thrashed Bashley 6-0 at the HDAnywhere Community Stadium.

The game had been reversed to Malvern's home ground at the eleventh hour due to weather concerns and it proved to be an unexpected goal-fest for those Town supporters in attendance as The Hillsiders ran riot.

Five goals in 20 first-half minutes did the damage as Thomas Henson's 25th-minute opener was added to by Levi Francis, Joe Bullock, and two from Jordan Annear all before half-time.

Lewis Spurrier added a sixth mid-way through a second-half that Malvern dominated with the game already settled as far as the result was concerned.

Co-manager Lee Hooper has witnessed some low points this season but he was delighted at full-time following, arguably, Malvern's best performance of the 2023/24 campaign so far.

"We were brilliant from the first whistle," he said. "We thoroughly deserved the three points and the big win."

Malvern are back at Step 4 for the first time in 14 years after last season's promotion, but have struggled in the first few months of the campaign and were in the bottom two of the Southern League Division One table three weeks ago.

But now, with two wins in a row, they have climbed out of the relegation zone.

"I think we were able to show what we are capable of and the belief is there now that we should be at this level.

"The fortunes of being on the front foot and being positive have reaped the rewards in these last two weeks. Sometimes you need a bit of luck and we have got that and it seems we have just turned a bit of a corner."
