Malvern Town battled out a good 3-1 victory yesterday over Rothwell Corinthians in the Buildbase FA Vase first round with Phil Harris (pictured) returning to the starting line-up and putting in a trademark assured display as we secured a sixth straight win.
“The team were unbelievable,” he said. “It was a massive effort from everyone to get the victory over opponents from a higher level. “Personally I wasn't overly happy with my own performance; I know I can do better, but the main thing was that we made it through to the next round. It’s always nice to beat a team from a League above and that will add to our confidence levels for the battles which lie ahead, including the next round of this competition."
“We’ve started the season really well. There’s an amazing squad here this season and it has showed with the performances that we have put in. There is good competition within the squad and both Dene and Lee have done so well in getting this group together. The new lads have all slotted in well and there’s a real togetherness and determination with plenty of strength in depth.
“We’ve also been given superb backing from the fans. They are always amazing, and have been so throughout my time at the club. They really help to push us on and as players we massively appreciate every single one of them because they really do make a difference.”
