Kaan Fehmi bagged a first half hat-trick as Royston romped to an impressive 6-0 victory in their Red Insure Cup third round tie at home to Aylesbury United last night (Tuesday).

A combination of quality from Royston and a somewhat abject display from the Ducks culminated in an emphatic victory for Royston who were 3-0 to the good within 19 minutes and never looked back.

Fehmi opened his account on eight minutes, and it was no surprise when a second arrived minutes later.

Jhai Dhillon delivered an excellent inswinging free-kick which caused confusion in the Ducks defence, and marksman Craig Hammond was on hand to get the final touch among the scramble and score.

Only four minutes later and a third Crows goal arrived, Fehmi robbing Liam Smyth in midfield before running on and producing a sublime finish that bent around Aylesbury keeper Jack Sillitoe and just inside the post.

Antonio Murray and Lewis Endacott both flicked efforts goalwards but found the Ducks number one was well placed to deal with them, but Royston, and Fehmi, weren’t to be denied and deservedly increased their advantage.

Fehmi collected the ball and went on a run past four of five weak challenges before picking his spot and finishing off his treble with virtually the last kick of the first half.

With the game seemingly dead and buried, Crows manager Steve Castle withdrew the excellent Fehmi, and had the luxury of a 15-goal replacement in Robbie Mason to bring on at the interval, whilst Ryan Lockett also replaced Dhillon.

Royston’s fifth came from debutant Reece Dobson, signed from Castle’s old club Takeley.

A corner kick was worked out to the winger, lurking some 30 yards from goal, and he struck a gem of a drive through a mass of bodies and past the unsighted Sillitoe.

The scoring was completed with a sixth when Mason towered above the defence to lever Lockett’s cross into the top corner, despite Sillitoe’s best efforts in keeping the ball out.
