Valley ran out easy winners after dominating matters at Cropston Road against newly-promoted Anstey Nomads.

All the visitors' goals came in the second half with debutants Kieran Fitzgerald and Ryan Seal on target alongside Charlie Evans (2) and Loyiso Recci.

Fitzgerald and Seal's inclusion for the first time gave Rugby a much-needed attacking impetus which was missing from the Cogenhoe draw while Carl Adams had to do without Lee Thomas who was sick along with injured duo Harry Holloway and Jazz Luckie.

Town should have already been well-ahead by the interval though, with Anstey Nomads keeper Joseph Smith keeping out decent efforts from Justin Marsden, Recci, Fitzgerald and Seal, with Marsden's looping strike clipping the top of the frame.

Dan Kavanagh also hit the bar with a 25 yarder, before Fitzgerald opened the scoring with a neat individual effort after he cut in from a wide position to fire a low shot past Smith.

Charlie Evans added a spectacular second goal for Town with an overhead kick to Seal's inswinging free-kick, and then Rugby took full advantage of the temporary dismissal of a Nomads' player for dissent to add two quickfire goals.

First Seal chipped home from 35 yards after Smith had decided to race out to try and deal with his counterpart Matt Hill's long punt upfield, and then Evans scored again when his shot from the edge of the box was assisted by a big deflection.

The hosts did pull one back when Finley Jones curled home, but Recci restored the four goal advantage when he shin-volleyed in a Fitzgerald set-piece late on.

Full report to follow.

Valley Line-up: Hill; L Recci, Kavanagh, Clarke, Alexander; Elliott (O Recci), White, Seal (Bako); Fitzgerald, Evans, Marsden (Lockley). Subs not used: Francis, Padmore. Booked: None.
