  • THE Thames Valley League Representative XI reached the last eight of the FA Inter-league Cup with a nerve-jangling 5-2 extra-time win at the Cambridgeshire County League XI.

Despite the TVL dominating a tense tie, the home side opened the scoring in the 72nd minute at Histon’s Glass World Stadium, a Rhys Thorpe piledriver leaving Marlow United goalkeeper Mick Rundle with no chance.

And it looked as though they would secure their passage to the quarter finals when they doubled their lead two minutes later, Michael Lambert converting a spot-kick after United’s Alan Mckie was adjudged to have brought down a home player.

However, the Thames Valley side would not lie down, and hauled themselves back into the contest when Reading YMCA striker Lorenzo Medford was brought down in the box, clubmate Dan Donegan halving the arrears on 86 minutes.

Meford was again the provider as the visitors forced the tie into extra time with a 93rd-minute equaliser, squaring the ball to Newbury’s Carl Jenner – pushed forward from centre back to a forward role late on – who turned the ball home.

The away side dominated the additional time, taking the lead when substitute Jo Jarra was hauled down in the penalty area allowing Donegan to make no mistake from the spot.

The game was virtually put to bed on the stroke of half time in extra time, Jenner bagging a second after Mark Froude set him clear.

And it was the impressive Medford who sealed the tie, running the ball into the net with six minutes remaining after the impressive Jarra had rounded the goalkeeper.

The Thames Valley League will travel to the Amateur Football Combination Select XI in the quarter finals.
