TOWN Vets finally ran out comfortable winners in their first game of the season but opponents Guilden Morden produced a spirited display in an entertaining game on Sunday.

Town enjoyed the best of the early exchanges and created some good chances but were foiled by a series of great saves by the Morden ‘keeper.

The deadlock was broken after 15 minutes when John Moulding crossed for Adam Smith to crash home a superb volley.

The visitors equalised almost immediately when indecision at the back allowed a Morden forward in to beat ‘keeper Simon Dobson.

Town continued to create openings and deservedly re-took the lead when Paul Lewis found Kevin Barthrop in space to score before doubling his tally before half time.

The accurate passing from midfielder Mark Saggers was a feature of the second half and, as the opponents’ defence became stretched, more chances were created for Town’s forwards.

Lewis deservedly put Town further ahead but Morden reduced the arrears to 4-2 following a period of sustained pressure on Town’s defence.

Barthrop and Lewis missed a couple of good chances but Lewis notched again in the last five minutes to give Town the win they deserved.

Royston Town Vets: Dobson, Cannon, Moulding, King, Pinner, Saggers, Smith, McQueen, Barthrop, Moulding, Lewis, Allen.
