Herts FA Intermediate Cup Final
9th April 2019
Jets Reserves beat Royston Town Reserves 2-0 tonight in the Herts Intermediate Cup final at the County Ground Letchworth.
Jets goals came from Ashley Fongho (20 min) and Andre Lopes (90+1).
Royston started the brighter but Jets looked dangerous on the break.
Ashley Fongho put Jets ahead in the 20th minute with a superb strike and from then on Jets looked the stronger team and the one more likely to score again.
In fact, good work by the Royston keeper continued to deny Jets, so much so that he was given the Herts FA Man of the Match award.
While it remained just 1-0 Jets were always vulnerable to one good shot from Royston. It nearly happened two minutes from time but a tremendous save from Jets keeper Drilon Ajeti denied Royston and preserved Jets lead as full time approached. Drilon was made the Jets Man of the Match primarily for that save, so pivotal to the end result.
Then in the 91st minute Jets finally sealed the win with a fine left-footed cross goal shot from Andre Lopes which started huge Jets celebrations by players, management and supporters.
