Royston Town Colts B 1

THIS was a very even contest throughout and Colts worked hard against a side they had beaten earlier in the season.

However, Colts did not have the penetration necessary in the final third to create enough clear-cut chances.

Baldock scored the opener with a fine ball from midfield splitting the Colts defence and the striker slotting the ball home.

In the second half Colts scored an equaliser after Jack Freeman made a strong run down the right, cut inside and was tackled on the edge of the box, the ball fell kindly to Jack Pearce whose snap shot took a minor deflection to take it around the keeper.
