AIDAN Clark came off the bench and scored twice inside five second-half minutes as Pershore Town beat Worcester Raiders 4-0 to book their place in the next round of the Worcestershire FA Senior Cup.

Clark was introduced by manager Lewis Marston on the hour and the big striker was celebrating just 40 seconds later as his curled effort lobbed Raiders' keeper Keiron Blackburn and found the top corner.

Clark then raced onto a Petar Tonchev through ball five minutes later to strike through Blackburn and make it 2-0 in soaking-wet conditions. 

"The game was crying out for Aidan Clark," said the Pershore boss. "We had chances in that second-half and we just lacked that cutting edge and I just turned around to Aidan and said 'this has got your name written all over it'. 

"That first goal is an unbelievable finish. He actually did miss the easiest chance he had!

"But that is what he brings, that is what he can do. He has goals in him and he has delivered again, top drawer from him."

Raiders had no answer to the quickfire double and goals from captain Jordan Adams and Sean Brain late on secured a convincing victory for The Plums.

Having won this competition two years ago, they will now face the reigning champions Stourport Swifts in the next round. 

It was a statement victory for Pershore and Marston's side continue to plug away in their first season back at Step 5.

"I think the biggest thing for me today, I thought all of us were good, no one dropped below a 7/10," added the manager. 

"We dominated them physically, we dominated them with the ball and that second-half, we blew them away and that is testament to the boys.

"They have grafted and worked really hard in horrible conditions, and four goals is the cherry on top of a brilliant performance and in terms of a squad performance, that was the best we've played."
