Ahmed Chrediy grabbed an extra-time winner for Cherwell (Oxford) in a 2-1 victory at Brentwood County High School in the ESFA Under 16 Schools’ Cup seventh round.

Marcus Gray had opened the scoring for Cherwell in the first half of the last-16 tie only for Brentwood to equalise after the break to force extra time.

But Cherwell kept battling, and Chrediy did the trick.

Now Cherwell are away to St Martin’s (Brentwood) in the quarter-finals.

St Birinus (Didcot) will be at home to Shenfield High School in the last eight after the Essex school won 4-1 at Mossbourne Community Academy (Hackney).

Cherwell’s terrific run in the ESFA Under 16 Girls’ Schools’ Cup came to an end with a 3-0 defeat in the quarter-finals at Maiden Erlegh (Reading).

They had won their way through five rounds to reach the last eight.
