They may be inexperienced and results can be inconsistent but Oxhey Jets’ talented crop of young players showed what they are capable of with an outstanding performance to beat Amersham Town 6-1 in the St Mary’s Cup quarter-finals last night.

The Buckinghamshire side are currently ten points clear at the top of Division One of the Combined Counties League, having failed to win just four of the 28 games they have played this season, scoring 110 goals in the process.

Jets may have 33 points less than their divisional rivals but they delivered a blistering attacking display at the Boundary Stadium to hit the runaway leaders for six.

The hosts only led by one goal at the break thanks to Owen Ayres’ superb finish in the 22nd minute but they really turned on the style in the second period.

Left-back Danny Fowler doubled the advantage in the 51st minute and 15 minutes later Ayres converted his second of the match.

Not to be outdone by Fowler, right-back Archie Sykes got his name on the scoresheet in the 74th minute.

Although Harley Sells ended Jets’ hopes of capping a memorable night with a clean sheet by scoring in the 83rd minute, Amersham immediately found themselves four goals behind again when Ayres completed his hat-trick a minute later.

There was still time for the South Oxhey side to score again when substitute Remell Stirling fired home number six with three minutes of normal time remaining.
