Royston United 2-1 Great Chishill Reserves

ROYSTON UNITED ensured back-to-back league victories on Saturday after edging past Great Chishill Reserves.

Royston started brightly and enjoyed plenty of possession without ever really testing the Chishill defence, who looked fairly comfortable early on.

Chris Geldart put the home ahead on 35 minutes, though, after he collected a neat pass from striker Wayne Hargreaves before slotting home from 18 yards.

Chishill upped their game after the half-time break with a number of Royston players struggling with knocks. Chishill dominated possession but Royston looked a threat on the break. The lead was doubled on the hour mark when Geldart got on the end of a Will Dacey corner to score his second of the match.

Chishill pulled a goal back with 10 minutes to go but Royston managed to hold on to their lead and seal another three-point return.

Royston face an away trip to Cambourne this Saturday.

Royston United: Watson; Oram, Baker (Ryding), Dolden, Laughlin; Dacey, Tiffin, Clarke (Pinner), Williams; Geldart, Hargreaves.
