THE Crows progressed in the Jubilee Cup with a well deserved win against higher-division Much Hadham.
After a cautious opening 20 minutes Royston took the lead when the free scoring Lee Bates thundered home an unstoppable 25 yard drive.
However Hadham levelled things right on the stroke of half time to set up the second period.
A rousing team talk during the interval paid dividends when once again Bates restored the home side advantage this time with a low angled drive.

Arash Kowkabzadheh looked to have sealed the victory with 20 minutes left to play when he rose above a static defence to head home a Brett Purkiss corner.
Much Hadham refused to give up and snatched a goal back,this only served to re-awaken Royston and Robbie Gwynne followed in to acrobatically smash home before the industrious James Bass rounded the Hadham keeper to complete the scoring.
