A MIXTURE of first teamers and Under-19s scored a convincing victory against New Brighton Villa as the Wingmakers progressed to the third round of the NEWFA Challenge Cup.

The Welsh National League visitors kept Airbus at bay until the 21st-minute when Pavel Vieira outpaced a defender and fired a good shot into the far corner to break the deadlock.

The Wingmakers were soon two goals to the good when a left-wing corner was headed home by Jay Crowther and a third goal followed in the 37th-minute when Ronny Song fired a superb shot from the right into the top corner.

Four minutes into the second half Alfons Fosu-Mensah played a good one-two on the edge of the box before firing home the fourth. Villa pulled one back when Stephen Orsler glanced home a header from a byline cross, but the four-goal advantage was quickly restored by Vieira and, after Fosu-Mensah had rattled the crossbar from 25 yards, Song ran from the half-way line before firing home his second from 18-yards.

The rout was completed when Leo Riley found Song, who made no mistake, and only some heroics from the Villa keeper throughout the game prevented Airbus from adding to their tally.

There were splendid performances from the Under-19s in the side, with keeper Dawid Szczepaniak, Rhys Hewitt, Jack Murphy and Blake Robinson in the starting line-up, and Harry Keeley and George Peers coming off the bench in the second half.
