Foweya at the double for United

Former West Ham trainee Amos Foweya fired Bethnal Green United into the quarter-finals of the Middlesex County League Cup as his two-goal salvo sank Marsh Rangers

Former West Ham trainee Amos Foweya fired Bethnal Green United into the quarter-finals of the Middlesex County League Cup on Saturday as his two-goal salvo sank Marsh Rangers.

Foweya, who joined United from Brentwood last month, hit his first goal for the club to open the scoring and doubled his tally by netting the winner after half-time as United marched into the last eight of the competition.

But it was midfielder Leon Ryan whose commanding display earned special praise from United boss Justin Gardner.

"Leon was fantastic - he won header after header, tackle after tackle and laid the platform for the win," he said, adding that the slim margin of victory failed to reflect his side's superiority.

"The scoreline makes it look close, but we were comfortable and should've won by more."

It took United just 10 minutes to underline their quality as Foweya fired home to break the deadlock.

Marsh responded when Harry Thomas headed home to level, but the home side fell behind again when Marlon Boateng, making his first start following a move from Waltham Forest, lashed home a thunderous volley from the edge of the area.

United went further ahead in the 60th minute when Foweya flashed the form that made him an England non-league international, spinning his defender and firing home in a manner that suggests the striker is close to a full recovery from the knee injury that sidelined him at the beginning of the season.

"He didn't have a pre-season, so he's still short of match fitness, but hopefully that will kick-start him on a run of goals," Gardner said.

Marsh full-back Aamer Nawid halved the deficit late on, but the home side were unable to alter the outcome.

United, who have signed Ibrahim Magaja from their Under-16 side, visit league leaders Hayes United on Saturday.
