Shrewton took an early lead through Daniel Burton and Charlie Utterson spurned the opportunity to extend the advantage before the break when he failed to convert from the penalty spot.

Tyler Pavey was able to double the lead early in the second half before substitute Ronan Clancy made it 3-0.

Malmesbury were able to pull a goal back but Tyren Harrington restored Shrewton’s three-goal cushion.
