Celtic cruise into next round of County Cup

Royston Celtic U12s 5 Harlow Sports U12s 2

Royston Celtic U12s made it through to the next round of the County Cup with a 5-2 win over Harlow Sports.

Celtic started well and went ahead through James Edwards’ strike from Mason Barnes’ 10th minute corner.

Harlow equalised 10 minutes into the second half before they took the lead with only two minutes to go.

However, from the restart Royston went back on the attack and Edwards was taken down in the box. Seabrook kept his nerve and sent the ‘keeper the wrong way with the last kick of the game. The re-introduction of Little seemed to settle Royston and Man of the Match Mahon went on to score a hat-trick in the first period of extra time to seal a superb victory when all had looked lost.
