Ben Chenery was pleased to see his team record their third straight win as his ruthless side hit 5 goals past a Felixstowe & Walton United side low on confidence after a poor start to their Isthmian League campaign.
Despite it being a League Cup tie, Felixstowe named a full strength side and Bury made only 4 changes from the side that had beaten Canvey Island 2-0 at the weekend, George Bugg taking the place of Daniel Barden in goal and youngster Max Maughn making his first start for the Blues.
Ben had to say "I was delighted with how we went about things tonight. We named a strong side as we don't have the numbers in the squad to make 11 changes. Cemal Ramadan and Jake Chambers Shaw needed a rest, and Daniel Barden is away on Wales Under 19 duties to George Bugg came in for him"
"We started the game on the front foot and the two early goals for Jarid Robson set us on our way. I always thought we were in control and when we scored the third goal just before half time that was the game wrapped up"
"Despite conceding a penalty early in the second half we kept out composure and scored twice again, and in truth should have probably had another couple more which would have been deserved, but I was very pleased with the players performance. While the League Cup is not our overall priority this season, we want to creating a winning environment and keep the confidence high"
The Blues now head into another Velocity Trophy match on Saturday at Heybridge Swifts who also won their opening group 1 game 2-1 at AFC Sudbury, kick off at Scraley Road is 3pm.
