There was a 3-0 loss for the 3rds at Potters Bar 3rds with all the goals coming in the second half.

The 4ths grabbed the only point for the club’s men on the day drawing 1-1 with Bishop’s Stortford 6ths.

Ben Jones hit a rare goal to put Royston ahead in the second half only for Stortford to hit back and rescue a draw.

Royston Ladies 1sts were beaten 2-1 at St Neots, Royston’s goal was an own goal.

The 2nds secured a thumping 7-0 win at Stevenage 3rds.

Heidi Whitaker netted four times with Abbie Jones and Wendy Holt (two) completing the scoring.
