LAVERSTOCK and Ford enjoyed their first win of the season in fine fashion on Tuesday night under the lights at The Dell, where they put Pewsey Vale to the sword with a 4-1 win.

The home side dominated right from the off and showed their intent with Russell Jones going close.

They did not have to wait long for their first goal as on eight minutes a handball in the box led to skipper Adam Bourner squeezing his effort under the diving Sam Tuttle.

Laverstock continued to press and Tommy Campbell Smith raced through and should have doubled the lead but his effort was saved.

Lewis Wykes was proving to be a real handful and his hold up play led to multiple chances.

The second goal finally arrived on 26 minutes. The returning Seb Dawes making his first start of the season slotted home and on 32 minutes all but finished the tie with a delicate header from a Graham Mankin assist.

The second half saw Lavvy continue their assault and Jones finally got his season off the mark, his cross cum shot was not dealt with and went over the line on 51 minutes.

It could have been five, when another penalty was awarded for a foul but this time Bourner's effort was parred away by Tuttle.

Credit to Pewsey, they never stopped harrying and trying to gain a foothold in the match and with time running out they got their consolation, a 25-yard curler nestled into the top right corner leaving Tom Roberts with little chance.

In the end Laverstock saw the game out at a canter before the whistle went, sending the majority 150 crowd home happy.

Manager Liam McConnell was pleased with his side's performance and said: "The first half was what I have expected to see from us.

"It was impressive how we took control from the 1st whistle and you could see the lads were in no mood to let a lead slip once they got their noses in front. There was a real intent to our play.

He added: "To be 3-0 against any side is fantastic in this tough league but they wanted more in the second half. It was good to give some much needed minutes to some off the bench and of course to see Seb back in the green and white was good for us all to see.

"He brings a leadership in the attacking areas, he got his two goals and should really have buried a header for a hat-trick but for his first game back it's a promising sign. We can now look forward to taking our unbeaten start to one of the league favourites Hythe on Saturday."
