A NEW-look Crows side suffered a second-half disaster on Saturday as Colney hit them for six after the break.

After a heavy FA Cup defeat at Clacton, boss Phil Snowden drafted in three new signings, with Ely Kitenge, Sebastian Ndombe and Kingsley Amankwah all making their debut.

The visitors controlled the first half, and took an 18th minute lead through Amankwah, but were made to pay for their failure to kill off the game when Steve Flain netted just before the break.

Having lost skipper Stuart Snowden through injury after five minutes, the Crows' defensive frailties were shown after the break.

Jarmaine Davey gave the hosts the lead three minutes after the restart before doubling the lead in the 54th minute.

The final 10 minutes saw Colney run riot, with Mark Paradise, Steve Hutchins and Dave Parkinson all getting on the scoresheet before Kenny Hull wrapped up the victory in injury time to send a shell-shocked Royston side home.

- The Crows play the second in a run of home games on Saturday when they host Langford, who have started the league season with two wins and a loss, at Garden Walk.

On Tuesday evening Broxbourne Borough are the visitors, although this game will be postponed if Broxbourne draw Saturday's FA Cup game against Stotfold.
