match report by Allan Mitchell

Hemel booked a place in the Semi-Final of the Herts Charity Cup by just edging past Potters Bar after surviving a nervy last couple of minutes when the home side threw the kitchen sink at them.

Up to this point it had been fairly comfortable for Joe Deeney’s side that contained half a dozen first teamers made up with players from the youth Academy.

Hemel went in front after just a minute when Leon Lobjoit finished well from the edge of the box. If the small group of away fans were expecting a goal fest after this bright start, it never came and the remainder of the first half remained fairly even.

Lobjoit added a second midway through the second half before a defensive mix up let in Potters Bar for their first of the evening - scored by Dernell Wynter.

Tom Hamblin then volleyed home a superb third goal with the clock ticking down, but Hemel do like to do things the hard way and they allowed Potters Bar to reduce the deficit again with five minutes left from sub Keegan Cole.

Then followed a period of pressure which included a hectic goalmouth scramble in The Tudors six yard box but the visitors survived and head on to Hertford in the Semi-Final, date to be announced.
