Chigwell Athletic 1 Oakwood 3

Two goals from JC star man Antony Kintish put Oakwood into the last four as they won the battle of the Division One title hopefuls at the Peter May.

Jason Lindsay, finished the job in a tie they trailed in.

A glorious strike from Jamie Fox had put Chigwell ahead.

Oakwood joint-manager Alex Schock told JC Sport: "We weren't at the races for the first 35 minutes and went 1-0 down. We felt we were the better team but some of our passing was poor and our defending not decisive enough.

"The pitch was playing a part too and once we started to get the ball out of the middle of the pitch which was heavy and had cut up badly, we improved and were much the better team for the remainder of the match.

"We have played better, no doubt about that over the last few months, and Chigwell made it difficult for us as we knew they would and we're just pleased to be in the semi finals. It's a great achievement.

"Our focus now is two huge league games against Redbridge and Chigwell which could see us secure promotion if we play well and get the right results."

Chigwell player-manager Richard Slater told JC Sport: "We dominated the first 45, but unlike us this season we just didn't come out second half.

"It pains me to say it but Oakwood wanted it more after the break and we just never got going again.

"It's a real shame but we pick ourselves up and go again."
