ROYSTON Town Hearts U12s won the League Cup with a 4-2 victory against Buntingford Cougars.

Hearts started brightly, having plenty of chances but failing to convert them.

The teams went in 0-0 at half time, but the second half was a different story.

Cougars came out fighting and scored first and then added a second.

With 15 minutes remaining, Hearts staged a tremendous come back. Jack Davis scored to make it 2-1 and then crossed for Danny Baulk to draw level.

With three minutes remaining captain Charlie Johnson headed in a Davis corner to put Royston in front, and then in the last minute Louis Harward found Jamie Judge to make it 4-2, putting the game out of reach for Cougars. Darren Harward Hearts’ manager, said: “I am so proud of all of the boys. They showed great character to come back from 2-0 down and to win the league cup two years in succession now is a fantastic achievement for them.

“I would also like to say well done to Buntingford who gave us a very hard match.”
