The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE FOURTH ROUND - By Nathaniel Sylvester

TWO-GOAL hero Reece He­witt shone bright­est against Sun Sports as he helped fire Broms­grove Sport­ing on.

The for­mer Red­ditch United striker struck in ei­ther half as the Mid­land League Di­vi­sion One side proved too strong for their Wat­ford-based coun­ter­parts.

He­witt struck af­ter just five min­utes, bundling in a Keenan Meakin-Richards free-kick.

Sport­ing, who brought 300 trav­el­ling fans, suf­fered an early blow when cap­tain Craig Jones limped off with a ham­string in­jury.

But the Rouslers were sel­dom threat­ened, al­though 40-year-old stand-in keeper Neil Leech had to pull off a good save from Sun Sports top scorer Dominic David.

Leech, who stepped in for the in­jured Chris Jay, had lit­tle to do af­ter the break as two quick goals put the tie be­yond the Spar­tan South Mid­lands Premier out­fit.

Ja­son Cow­ley drove in the sec­ond from 15 yards on 51 min­utes and five min­utes later a sweep­ing move from one end of the pitch to the other cul­mi­nated in Andy Ni­col feeding Ahmed Ali, who dinked the ball over keeper Matt Evans from eight yards.

Ten min­utes later, He­witt wrapped things up as he raced clear from just in­side the half­way line to coolly waltz around Evans and tap home the fourth goal. STAR MAN: Reece He­witt (Broms­grove Sport­ing) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
