Wealdstone comfortably progressed into the third qaulifying round of the FA Cup with victory at Grosvenor Vale on Saturday.

A first-half double from Danny Green gave the Stones a confident advantage and Matty Whichelow’s goal just three minutes into the second half effectively snuffed out any chance of a Faversham comeback. Dan Fitchett nodded in the fourth.

Bobby Wilkinson kept true to his word and played a full-strength side, making one change with the experienced Alan O’Brien making his full debut in place of Abobaker Eisa.

Wilkinson was also boosted by a trio of returning first-teamers on the bench, with Ciaron Brown back from his trial at Cardiff City that had kept him out of the midweek game against Poole Town and captain Sam Cox also back in the squad after a groin injury.

Midfielder Luke Williams was finally named in the Wealdstone squad since signing from Hungerford Town after a knee injury had kept him out for five weeks.

The Bostik South visitors started solidly with a five-man defence and it was always going to take a moment of innovation to break the deadlock.

And Whichelow played a through ball to Fitchett who let it run through his legs into the path of Green who slotted past Simon Overland in goal with aplomb.

Green doubled his tally six minutes before the break after he was tripped in the box and converted the resulting penalty, sending Simon Overland the wrong way.

Whichelow then put the tie beyond doubt when he struck three minutes into the second half, swerving in a low effort in from the edge of the area.

Stones, now in complete control, piled on the pressure and Whichelow thought he had grabbed another when he got on the end of a deep O’Brien cross, his shot beat Overland but somehow Matthew Bourne cleared off the line.

Fitchett added a fourth on 70 minutes, though, as he headed in an inch-perfect Ryan Sellers cross to net Wealdstone’s 15th home goal in three games.

Man-of-the-match Green almost capped his day with a hat-trick when he was played in by sub Elliot Benyon, but Overland brilliantly tipped his low effort onto the post and out.

Wealdstone: North, Oshodi, Brown, Hill, Day, Wellard (Williams 65), Whichelow, Okimo, Fitchett (Benyon 74), Green, O’Brien (Ngamvoulou 69).

Unused subs: Constable, Eisa, Brown, Cox.

Attendance: 414.
