Ascot United will travel to Newport (IOW) next Saturday in round five of the FA Vase after disposing of Borrowash Victoria in a comprehensive and comfortable 3-0 victory this afternoon.
A second half Lee Boon strike and a penalty from substitute Jon Bennett added to Sam Wadieh's first half header at the Watkinson Construction Bowl, with the win ensuring the Yellamen's historic run in the Vase this season continues to the last 16 of the competition.
Having dominated the early exchanges, United broke the deadlock in the 26th minute when Wadieh finished off good work from Dave Hoar by nodding home his left-wing cross from close range.
Boon doubled the advantage midway through the second half when he turned home a Rob Saunders centre before replacement Bennett put the tie beyond any doubt when he dusted himself down after being fouled by Victoria's Dave Leigh in the box and converted the resulting spot kick.
Having reached the fourth round of the Vase for the first time in the club's history, Ascot will now be looking to take their involvement in the competition to the quarter-finals when they make the short trip across the Solent to take on the Isle of Wight outfit.
Ascot United: Grace, Smillie, Boddy (Yeates), Wadieh (Brooks), Clayton, Hancock, Hoar, Lamb, Knight (Bennett), Saunders, Boon
