oxfordshire faOxfordshire Senior Cup - Quarter Final

Ardley United 1 Oxford United 3 (Oxford Mail)
Ryan Crooks came off the bench to score twice as a youthful Oxford United won 3-1 at Ardley United's ground in the Oxfordshire Senior Cup quarter-final.

After a tight first half, Billy Gillett missed a glorious chance for the Sky Bet Lague One club just before the hour mark to put the hosts in front. Substitute Crooks was twice superbly denied by Tom Molloy, but the Ardley goalkeeper was finally beaten 18 minutes from time. Albie Hopkins slid a pass through for Crooks, who slotted home. And he struck again six minutes later, when a tiring Ardley defence gave him time and space in the penalty area.

The Uhlsport Hellenic League Dividion One West side pulled a goal back five minutes from time, when Greg Hackett burst through and smashed a shot past Niall Clayton.

But Oxford held firm and added a third goal deep into stoppage-time with a terrific strike from Owen James.

Easington Sports 1 Banbury United 2 (report Banbury United)
Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West Easington Sports took the lead in the 11th minute goal when a Joe Eyre cross from the left was headed home by Callum Convey.

Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division Banbury United went close to equalising in the 18th minute when Conor McDonagh burst through down the left with his shot from a narrow angle deep inside the Easington penalty area past Adam Rimmer in the Easington goal being hacked off the line by Connor Grant. But just two minutes later and a free-kick from the half way line was pumped deep into the Easington penalty area where Ricky Johnson coming in down the left headed the ball home from the edge of the six yard box to bring the scores level.

Banbury having now got back on level terms would go on to have the better of the remainder of the half. On 28 minutes Johnson set-up Jack Finch but the former Coventry City player shot well over from 12 yards. Six minutes later and a free-kick by Winters was headed home by Johnson from 10 yards out but the assistant referee raised his flag for off-side. A minute before the interval though and United were ahead when a corner from the right was headed back into the centre from the edge of the six yard box at the far post by Johnson with Charlie Wise heading the ball into the net from close range.

The second half saw Banbury have much the better of proceedings with Harding in the Banbury goal not being required to make any saves of note but missed chances, good defending and some sound goalkeeping meant they had to be satisfied with the 2-1 win. It was a difficult heavy pitch and Easington made Banbury work hard for their narrow win but it is the Puritans who advance to the semi-finals where they join Kidlington, Oxford City and Oxford United in the semi-finals.

Easington Sports: Adam Rimmer, Terry Fitton, Connor Grant, Josh Rose, James Hastie, Lewis Travers, Andrew Stidder, Charlie Hill, James Montague, Callum Convey, Joe Eyre. Subs (used): Reece Bayliss, Michael Spaull, George Coombes, Subs (not used): Lee Farrow, Nathaniel Lewars
