Match Report | Daventry Town v Burnham FC – FA Vase, 26.08.2023

Daventry Town 1 – Burnham 8  –   26th August 2023 – Dean Butler

The Blues ease past Daventry Town on the road to Wembley in the FA Vase.

Burnham got their FA Vase campaign of to a flying start with a comprehensive victory at Daventry Town.  It took just 4 minutes for the blues to make the breakthrough when Firas Chniba was tripped in the box and from the resulting spot kick Firas himself broke the deadlock to give Burnham an early lead. Burnham got their second goal just before the 20th minute following a foul on Anas, Jonny Denton stepped up to take the free kick, he expertly curled it into the top corner from 25 yards.

With the blues still dominating play it was the home side who got the 3rd goal just before the break. A neat move down the left hand side opened up the Burnham defence allowing the striker to poke the ball home from close range.

A good half from the visitors.

HT: Daventry Town 1 – Burnham 2  

Burnham were quick out of the blocks again in the second half with a 3rd goal after 50 minutes. A headed goal from Anas Igozouln the first of his brace.   The blues had to wait until the 70th minute to get a deserved 4th goal, this time Jabir beat the offside trap to neatly finish a one on one with the keeper. This goal in particular seemed to open the floodgates, and saw Burnham get a further 4 goals in the final 20 minutes. Aitor was next on the score sheet when his long range effort took a deflection to wrong foot the keeper, Anas then got his second of the game to make it six. A minute after, Firas was on hand to make it 7 getting his second of the game. The 8th and final goal and his first for the club came from new signing Jenyo Balogun.

A very dominant display from the Blues and credit to the team and management who keep this high scoring run of wins going.
