THERE was a goal-fest for Royston Celtic under-10s A on Sunday as they hammered Letchworth ­Garden City Eagles A 12-1.

And they got off to the perfect start when defender Jordan Cooney found the back of the net before he snatched a second shortly after, which seemingly opened the floodgates.

And by half-time the hosts were 7-0 up, with Lorcan George, Callum ­Pinner (2) and Richard Jonas (2) adding to the scores.

Jonas then grabbed a hat-trick within a minute of the re-start, before hitting a fourth moments later with a long-range free kick.

After Letchworth scored a consolation George made it 10-1 before Pinner's hat-trick and Eamon Henderson's strike completed the rout.

Royston Celtic under-10s B came unstuck, losing 3-1 to Letchworth Garden City Eagles B.

Jimi Smith levelled for Celtic midway through the first half, but the ­visitors came out stronger after the break and nabbed two quick goals.

Ethan Lewis hit the bar for Royston, as the home side battled until the end.

In the under-13 Division Three, Royston Town Colts A were ­comfortably beaten by Ickwell & Old Walden going down 5-1 at home.

After a disappointing few weeks the Colts fought hard and trailed the league's runaway leaders by just one goal at the interval, with Ashley Chapman going closest to a Royston goal.

After gifting the visitors a second after the re-start, the Colts showed a real fighting spirit as Jake Benstead and Lucas Sekobawane covered with some important tackles.

However, the hosts grew tired and with that Ickwell hit two more goals, before Conor Saggers' solo effort restored some hope.

But Ickwell wrapped up a deserved victory with a fifth in the closing minutes.

There was also disappointment for Melbourn Dynamos Panthers under-9s as they slipped up against Stevenage Youth with a 4-0 defeat.

Despite a bright start, with Kieran Geraghty and George Storey going close for Melbourn, it was the hosts who made the impact with four quick goals midway through the first half.

The visitors bounced back in the second half with Josh Hutton playing well in midfield. In fact, Melbourn dominated the half, as Storey went close on three occasions, and keeper and player-of-the-match Connor Patel had little to do.

Melbourn Dynamos Tigers under-9s also lost their match with Stevenage Youth B, in a tight 1-0 defeat.

It was a tough game for the Tigers, who at times were overpowered by a strong Stevenage side.

However, Melbourn stuck to their task with Joe Greeman creating chances for Tigers.

But the deadlock was broken midway through the second half when Stevenage netted with a close range finish.

In the end Stevenage ran out winners despite the best efforts of player-of-the-match Izzy Broadbent and defender Andrew Houghton.

Letchworth Yellows under-12s are through to the next round of the county cup after overcoming Watford Youth Sports 3-0.

The Yellows reached the third round courtesy of strikes from Campbell-Gump, Hancock, and Courlander.

Valpy-Nelson also impressed, as did man-of-the-match Gillham.
