EVESHAM United caretaker boss Paul West enjoyed the perfect start to his third spell in charge of the club as the Robins cruised to a 3-0 home win over Evo-Stik Southern League Division One South & West basement boys Yate Town on Saturday.
West, among the front-runners to be given the job on a permanent basis following the departure of Matt Clarke and his assistant Rob Elmes the previous week, oversaw the Robins' biggest league win of the campaign as they earned a first maximum points haul in four games.
Evesham enjoyed most of the play in the first half but could not find a way past Josh Dempsey in the Bluebells' goal, but that all changed within 60 seconds of the restart as the returning Simon Fitter beat Dempsey with a stunning strike after a neat build-up between Roland Agbor and player/coach Neil Mackenzie.
Leading scorer Marcus Palmer then doubled United's lead eight minutes later by sweeping the ball home after David Kalonji's throw-in had been helped on at the near post.
Yate, who go to Cheltenham Town in the first round proper of the FA Cup this weekend, were constantly being stretched at the back and conceded a third on 69 minutes when Palmer again gave Dempsey no chance as he bagged his ninth goal of the season.
Dempsey prevented a bigger winning margin by making decent stops from the outstanding Fitter, Palmer and substitute Mark Danks before the end.
The Robins are sixth in the table, although they have played more games than sides around them in the table, as they prepare to welcome Bridgwater Town to the Jubilee Stadium tomorrow being visiting Cinderford Town on Tuesday.
