May & Baker captain Richard Oxby says the whole team was pleased to seal their progress into the quarter-finals of the First Division Knockout Cup with a comfortable 6-1 victory against Lopes Tavares.

After originally going a goal down, braces from Conor Okus and Alexander Owuadey, as well as solo efforts from Kiel Chandler and Besmir Hoxhaj sealed the win for the Bakers in their third round tie at the Terence McMillan Stadium.

“Everyone is happy with the result and scoring plenty of goals was good for the team,” Oxby said.

“It showed we still have confidence despite the Braintree game and with the gaffer’s commitment to us we wanted to dig in and put in a shift for him.”

Oxby went on to praise his team’s character and feels that will keep them winning games.

“The team is full of character and personalities, we are willing to go all in for each other, that are the bond we have,

“It’s a great dressing room to be in.

“It’s vital we keep winning games no matter the competition we have a dressing room full of winners and as club captain I want to win at everything and so does every one here.”
