Giantkillers Hatfield United meet their match in Aubrey Cup
PUBLISHED: 09:54 14 January 2020
After knocking out Premier Division Belstone in the last round, Hatfield United’s run in the Herts Senior County League Aubrey Cup was ended by another top flight side as they lost 1–0 at Oxhey Jets Res.
The winner came early in the second half after the ball ran kindly from a Hayden Evanson block but despite playing a division below their hosts, Hatfield matched them for the majority of the game.
Evanson had to make a diving save in the first half but Matt Noot was denied by the Oxhey keeper and Dale Stewart, Greg Mackintosh and Curtis Warner all flashed efforts just past the post.
Oxhey came more into it after the goal and Mackintosh had to clear another shot off the line.
United defended well though and still create some opportunities, the best falling to Warner on the stretch in the area but he coulld only divert his shot off the outside of the post and wide.
Solomon Dowadu was named as man of the match.
