Atletico breezed into the 1st round of the FA Vase as they dominated the game against
Bromyard, with goals from Rico Taylor and Kristian Ramsey-Dickson plus Marco Adaggio
scoring his second hatrick of the season rounding off the win.
With Bromyard Town struggling towards the bottom of the WMRL the game went with form and
AFC had most of the possession and did most of the attacking. Javia Roberts and Rico Taylor
would prove to be a thorn in the Bromyard side all afternoon, and Taylor especially, whom
provided Hinckley with the lead as early as the fourth minute. Good work from Taylor
out wide ensured a low cross into the area and Dale Goddard could do nothing but convert
it into his own net. Taylor was instrumental in Atletico's second as his inch perfect
through ball released Adaggio who neatly lobbed the Bromyard Keeper rushing out of his goal.
Roberts then produced some trickery to set up space for a long range effort that Adam Went
managed to tip over the bar, before his free kick was completely missed by Went, falling
to the feet of Ramsey-Dickson who finished from a tight angle with the aid of a deflection
off the unlucky Dale Goddard. Minutes later the game was finished as a contest as AFC scored
their fourth thanks to a fine solo effort from Taylor coming inside off the wing and
unleashing a curling shot into the top corner.
The second half continued much as the first, and any slight chance of a comeback from
Bromyard was snuffed out 3 minutes in as another great run from Roberts resulted in a
byline cross that the diving Adaggio managed to guide with his head past a stranded Went.
With the game seemingly won AFC introduced their latest signings on the hour with
Ryan Seal and Nathan Caines coming on as substitutes, but it would be spotlight on
Adaggio as Roberts quick feet saw him fouled just inside the area with the ref awarding
the penalty. Adaggio stepped up and dispatched the spot kick, scoring his second hatrick
of this season and extending Hinckley's lead to six goals. There was still time for more
with Nathan Walker seeing his free kick drift just over, and Seal almost scoring on his
debut only to see his effort beat the keeper but come back off the post. However there
was no more addition to the score and AFC were comfortable to the final whistle.
