Royston Ladies III 0 Welwyn Ladies IV 2 A FAILURE to take their chances cost Royston as they slipped to a home defeat against Welwyn. The hosts played a strong first half and both Caroline Yarrow and Lisa Thompson had some good strikes at goal, but two goals from Welwyn gave them the half-time lead. The second half saw Royston came out strongly with Helen Miles and Catherine Johnson playing some great hockey down the right wing. Royston were unfortunate not to score with a mad scramble in the goalmouth, Yarrow, Thompson and Kirsty Penfold all trying hard to put the ball away. Bedford Ladies II 7 Royston 0 ROYSTON found themselves overwhelmed by a strong Bedford side, on Saturday. Royston set off with a good pace at the beginning of the match but where quickly overrun by the hosts, who scored four in the first half. During the second half, Royston fought back strongly, however after some unfortunate decisions from the umpires, any chances Royston may have had for a late come back were lost and Bedford managed to score another three goals.
