WHITCHURCH Alport brushed aside the challenge of Tividale at the KMJ Mortgages Stadium to seal their Buildbase FA Vase progress on Saturday.

With manager Luke Goddard unavailable due to holiday commitments his assistant Steve May took charge of first team affairs.

May was happy with his side’s work having beaten Haughmond in a seven goal thriller at the Shewsbury Sports Village on Tuesday.

Celson Segunda, Jack Merman and Alex Hughes struck with Jacob Farleigh netting the winner in a 4-3 win.

“We certainly made heavy weather of things in mid-week but we responded well to take the points,” said May. "Against Tividale I thought we were excellent and controlled the game for almost all of the 90 minutes.

"We are meticulous in our planning and detail for every game. We knew that they would set up with a 3-5-2 formation allowing our full backs to push on and use the space down the flanks.

"This bunch of players are extremely talented and they are being coached better than any other squad we have had over the past five years."
