The Swans progressed to the third round of the City Security Services League Challenge Cup with a impressive performance against high flying Melksham Town at the infiLED Arena on Tuesday evening, scoring four goals without reply.

The Superb playing surface and the very impressive surroundings seemed to suit the visitors as they took the game to their hosts right from the off.

Just 4 minutes in and Slimbridge were ahead when Dan King's corner found the head of Korey Pring.

It was all Slimbridge as Will Hawes fired wide and Jaden Maddock saw his effort also go just wide.

At the other end Swans keeper had to rush from his box to clear a through ball but his clearance found Brad Norris who hit his shot wide when the goal was open to him.

Joe Noakes was next to go close as Slimbridge kept up the pressure and they deservedly increased their lead on 11 minutes when Will Hawes fired home from 15 yards.

Maddock was denied a certain goal when clean through by a superb sliding tackle from home defender Jamie Lyons.

On the half hour the Swans went 3 up when Maddock went on a great run up the right wing, his cross found Hawes who did well to set up Dan King to fire home from 10 yards.

Melksham tried to reduce the deficit before half time but Edge pushed round a good effort from Gary Higdon to ensure the Swans went into the break 3 goals to the good.

The home side had their best spell of the night at the re start, Lyons fired just over and a Jake Hutchins header was also too high.

On 60 minutes Hawes was fouled 30 yards out and the striker dusted himself down and struck a fierce free kick against the home side's crossbar.

The game was sealed on 69 minutes when Ewen Dunbar found himself in space and finished well past Kauppinen in the home goal.

A triple substitution by Swans manager Lee Driver-Dickerson on 75 mins introduced some fresh legs as the manager tried to see the game out, Hands, Martin and Bloomfield replacing Noakes, Maddock and Captain Dean Turner.

As the clock wound down a good run and cross from Bloomfield just eluded Martin at the far post as referee Craig Scrivens blew for full time.
