PERSHORE Town manager Danny Janes said he was delighted to put out another “statement” win as the Plums beat Roman Glass in the Hellenic League Supplementary Cup Final on Bank Holiday Monday.

Janes’ side emerged 5-2 winners, having raced to 3-0 up in the first half with goals from Jordan Jones, Sean Cooke and a penalty from James Baldwin.

Glass managed to recover, pulling the match back to 3-2 before Jones replied to make it four.

A second-half goal from Roland Krol rounded off the win, with Janes praising his players’ mentality throughout.

He said: “The result was another statement that we can compete with teams further up the pyramid.” said Janes.

“I was delighted with the performance, we dominated possession and looked dangerous every time we went forwards.

“We were disappointed with the goals we conceded as we spoke about those moments before the game, but we didn’t do our jobs well enough.

“We showed good character again not to panic when they pulled it back to 3-2.

“It is another trophy and another great day for the club.

“We had to utilise the squad and the players who came in did really well.

“Every player played their part, there was not one average performance which underpinned the overall team performance.

“Jordan Jones, Sean Cooke and Jake Cavens were exceptional. It was great to see Scott Loader make his first team debut in goal, he was fantastic and looked like he had played all season.

“We have spoke about bringing three trophies home, we have delivered two, we now prepare for a huge test on Saturday.

“Thank you to all those who travelled to support us and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.”

Debutant goalkeeper Scott Loader kept a clean sheet on debut, with Pershore’s next action coming against Malvern Town on Saturday.
