Pershore Town progressed into the Semi Final of the Smedley Crooke Memorial Cup on Tuesday evening at the Community Stadium with a 3 - 1 win over Warstones Wanderers.

New signing, Petar Tonchev, opened the scoring early in the first half before fellow new signing, Josh Willis, doubled the lead.

A lapse in concentration from a set piece just before half time allowed Warstones back into the game but James Baldwin secured the win after the break.

The win gives new manager, Danny Janes, the dream start following Saturday's comfortable home league win over Malmesbury Victoria.

"It is another positive result and one we are very happy with as it is a cup we want to win." said Janes.

"Cups are there to be won, I believe in going into every game as strong as possible and selecting players who deserve to play.

"I felt first half we had complete control over the game, we dominated the ball, played through the thirds and picked up the ball in a range of good attacking areas.

"We deserved our goals and could have scored more if we were more clinical. We then give away an awful goal from a set piece just before half-time, giving them something to build on when we should be coming in at half-time with a two goal lead.

"Second half we started well again, controlling the play and I could see a structure to our play. We spoke about the next goal being crucial, we got that goal and I was really happy with the calmness of the players at the start of that second period.

"We got over the line which is the main objective, but I want more quality over the 90 minutes."

Janes replaced previous boss Neil Parton at the end of last month and has started with two wins in a matter of days.

The boss is pleased with the start they have made and is encouraged about where things are going.

"The management team have been at the club for seven days now," said Janes

"During that period, we have trained once, the players trained really well, we won our first league game and made it to a Semi-Final, on reflection it has been a really positive start.

"The players have been fantastic in their receptiveness and ability to soak up a lot of information and detail. We are constantly drip feeding the standards we expect on and off the pitch, it will take time to get it to where we want it to be, but things are moving quickly.

"We spoke with the players about how they must meet the standards consistently, whether that is off the pitch or their performances on the pitch. Players who want to be a part of this journey must demonstrate they are willing and capable to do that."
