BSCFC Northolt 2
WITH Northolt sitting third in the league and Royston fourth, on paper this looked as though it was going to be a very tight game, but an inspired team performance by Colts enabled them to leap frog their opponents.
After a bright opening spell by both sides, Royston broke the deadlock, when from a Dan Cobb corner Tom Dolden's superbly struck volley found the back of the net.

Cobb added a fourth from an acute angle directly from a quickly taken corner. Steve Archibald completed his hat-trick with a simple tap-in after a long range effort from Kneale Jeffries was dropped by the Northolt keeper.
Royston had several further chances and threatened a rout before Northolt got one back five minutes before half-time.
The visitors scored direct from a free kick midway through the second half, but the result was never really in doubt.
The Royston defence dealt comfortably with most Northolt attacks.
Up front Calum Chapple worked hard without reward, but it was Jack Ash whose all round performance, and especially his intelligent, selfless covering work, who drew high praise from the Colts manager, Geoff Pinner.
