Eynesbury Rovers showed their ‘six’ appeal as they breezed into the third round of the FA Vase yesterday - for only the second time in their history.

Mark Ducket's side thumped lower-level Milton Keynes Robins 6-1 to continue their progress in the national competition.

Jordan Brown led the charge with a hat-trick in the second-round romp as Steve Gentle, Scott Sinclair and Ash Fuller also found the net.

Godmanchester Rovers entered and exited the FA Vase at that stage. Ollie Drake's men crashed to a 5-2 defeat at fellow Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division side Woodbridge Town.

Micky Hyem hit a spectacular late consolation goal straight from a kick-off during the defeat in Suffolk. James Hall was the other Rovers scorer.
