CHARLIE EVANS
by CRAIG WEBB

Charlie Evans scored a hat-trick as Rugby eased through to the next round of the FA Vase with a comfortable win over Ellesmere Rangers at Butlin Road.

Once Evans opened the scoring inside the first ten minutes it was very much one way traffic against their lower league opponents as Carl Adams' men booked a place in the First Round.

Manager Adams named an unchanged side a week on from their last gasp defeat to Rothwell, and Town were the brighter side from the off, and a hint of things to come came in the ninth minute when Evans climbed highest in a crowded box to meet Ryan Seal's excellent corner, as he headed in past visiting keeper Liam Caines.

Ellesmere had their first effort shortly after when Dave Howarth shot wide from a decent cross, but midway through the half Town doubled their lead through Caine Elliott after Evans had slipped his marker to find his man with an accurate cross and from the slightest of angles, the youngster tapped the ball over the line.

With Valley in control, a lack of discipline gave the visitors an opportunity to reduce the deficit.

When Elliott gave away a freekick on the edge of the area, Dylan Parker did not agree with the decision and his words to the referee saw him sent to the sin bin for ten minutes.

From the resulting set piece, Gary Meredith produced a cracking shot into the top left of the goal beating the stretching Sam Lomax.

However just before half time, Rugby increased their lead when Evans grabbed his second, when he collected the ball from Danico Johnson and he sent his powerful effort into the corner.

The second half was all Rugby with Ellesmere struggling to cope with constant Town pressure, and in the 53rd minute Parker redeemed himself with a quality goal from ten yards out after the impressive Evans supplied him with a decent ball.

Just six minutes later, Parker got his second and Rugby's fifth when he cleverly chipped the ball over the keeper from James Hancock's good pass in space.

Ellesmere's day got worse when with half an hour to play and they were reduced to ten men when Jack Sweeney pulled back Johnson through on goal, with the referee not hesitating to send him off.

With just under twenty minutes left, Evans completed his hat trick and the victory for Rugby, when a pacey run from Lee Thomas took him to the byline and he whipped a sharp pass for Evans to tap home from close range.

Valley too ended the game a man light when substitute Anthony Howell was dismissed for a late lunging tackle, just after Parker nearly made it seven, when he hit the bar late on.

Valley Line-up: Lomax; Rosser, L Thomas, Recci, Francis; Hancocks (C Thomas), Elliott; Parker, Evans (Revan), Seal; Johnson (Howell). Subs not used: J Thomas, Marsden. Booked (Sin Bin): Parker. Sent off: Howell.
