CAPTAIN Dave Berks led by example as Brocton marched in to the second round of this season's FA Vase with a giant killing 2-0 away win at higher league Stourport Swifts on Saturday.
Berks struck in each half as the Midland Combination premier outfit pulled off a thoroughly deserved success against the Midland Alliance outfit.
It was another excellent victory in this competition for Brocton, who reached the third round proper a few years ago.
Brocton took the tie to the hosts in the early stages and opened their account after 32 minutes.
Defender Jamie Evans picked out Berks midway inside the opposition half and the latter took the ball on a few yards before beating former Wolves keeper Lewis Solly with a screamer of a shot from 25 yards.
Brocton could well have sewn up the game in the first period as Paul McMahon was twice denied by Solly in one-on-one situations.
Seven minutes after the break, Brocton increased the lead when Berks whipped in a right wing free kick that beat everybody in a crowded box and found the net.
Brocton, who could well have won this tie by more than the two goals, survived late pressure to take their place in Monday's second round draw.
