Oxhey Jets’ love of Tuesday night cup ties beneath the Boundary Stadium lights continued as they produced another very impressive performance to beat Langley 3-0 in the Division One Challenge Cup last night.

Dave Barnes and Tom Inch’s young side have often saved their best for midweek cup clashes -  including the 6-1 dismantling of runaway Combined Counties League Division One leaders Amersham Town in the St Mary’s Cup at the start of this month - and they once again delivered one of their top displays of the campaign to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Full-back Danny Fowler set the match alight on 15 minutes with a superb solo goal to open the scoring.

Fowler ran with the ball down the byline before cutting in to shoot. The keeper tried to clear but the Jets defender pressurised him, nicked the ball from him and slotted home from a very tight angle.

Not content with one goal, Fowler doubled his and his side’s tally after 32 minutes.

Quick thinking from Lewis Lavin in goal released Fowler who played in Dylan Hickman Singh down the line. Hickman Singh duly cut the ball back to his team mate to strike a bullet past the keeper for his second.

Jets continued to play at their highest level, in contrast to Saturday’s disappointing display in the 1-1 league draw with Spartan Youth, and gave Langley little opportunity to get back into the game. Skipper Owen Deamer was outstanding in midfield, taking control of the match.

An excellent night’s work was rounded off in the third minute of additional time when Remell Stirling did well on the edge of the penalty area before finding centre back Harry Brady making a run into the box to slot confidently past the keeper.
