JAMIE Tompkins described Ascot United's performance as "fantastic" and "outstanding" following their sensational 7-0 FA Vase win over Abbey Rangers, writes Dave Wright.

"We were up against a very good side, but we were ruthless and we were far superior to them," he told the News after last Tuesday's replay success which earned them a third-round tie at Kent-based Corinthian on November 30.

"The whole team was outstanding. We pride ourselves on dominating our one-on-ones all over the pitch and every single player did just that, including the substitutes.

"I was very proud of the whole team."

On the night, no player stood out more than Ian Davies, who scored a hat-trick against their Combined Counties League rivals who had gone close to winning when they first met at Addlestone Moor.

"He has been absolutely brilliant for us, so it was great to see him get a hat-trick," said Tompkins.

"He is someone I have always really respected as a player, he is a natural goalscorer.

"For us to sign him in the summer was a big move as the way we play, we knew we could get him scoring more goals.

"We are a team who creates a lot of chances in every game and we now have a goalscorer to match that.

"He settled in at the club right from the start and has now scored 13 goals this season."

Yet, despite the margin of victory, Tompkins did not consider it to be the perfect performance.

He explained: "We were clinical with our finishing, but if I were to be really critical, that is still an area where we could have improved on. We missed several opportunities and could have reached double figures.

"So in that aspect, we were not quite at our best. I have seen a lot more in training and from individuals across other games, so we have a lot more to offer."
