Notts County clash awaits for Newark Town after 5-0 win over Kimberley Miners' Welfare — Blues' Notts Senior Cup win in pictures
Newark Town boss Luke Parsons says the 5-0 win against Kimberley Miners' Welfare was one of his side's best performances of the season.
He said his team were buzzing to continue their impressive Notts Senior Cup run as a quarter-final tie with Notts County awaits.
A date is yet to be confirmed, although the National League club have requested the fixture, which is to be played at the YMCA Activity Village, to take place on Wednesday, March 4.
Man of the match Lewis Chambers set the tone for the win when he fired Town ahead after three minutes in front of a crowd of 120 at the YMCA.
A hard-fought battle followed and the score remained the same until the opening stages of the second half when Chambers hit his and Town's second — a delightful finish having raced behind the visitors' defence.
Two minutes later it was 3-0. George Asplin timed his run at the back post to perfection as he tapped home a square ball into an empty net.
Tyler Martin was next to get in on the act. The winger beat his man with a clever piece of skill on the left before cutting the ball onto his right foot and firing past the keeper at his near post.
And, after Chambers had hit the crossbar in an attempt to steal the match ball, strike partner Daryl Price clinically finished from close range to make it five on 75 minutes.
Parsons said: "I couldn't be any more proud of the lads. Every single one of the players played for the shirt.
"It was arguably our best performance of the season against a side a league above."
