Crows held in stalemate by Fleet Town
Evo-Stik League Southern Central Division
Royston Town 0
Fleet Town 0
ROYSTON TOWN were held to a goalless draw by a stubborn Fleet side at Garden Walk on Saturday.
It was a scrappy and frustrating first half with few real chances on goal being created by either side. Carl Edwards missed Royston’s best chance, blasting high over the bar from a right-wing cross when he should have at least made the Fleet keeper work.

The visitors’ only chance came from a long shot that Will Norris comfortably tipped over.
The Crows toiled to create rare openings but lacked the cutting edge in front of goal and the required quality of final pass didn’t materialise.

Royston came out livelier in the second half and for the first 15 minutes forced some good early pressure and looked the better side pinning Fleet back into their own half.
A good move involving Luke Robins and Ryan Ingrey led to a snap-shot from Russell Bull hitting the side-netting.
Bull followed this up with another shot wide following some good play by Lee Wilson and Ryan Lockett, but the game soon deteriorated back into a lifeless stalemate.
The Royston substitutes failed to change things and despite centre-half Joe De La Salle pushing on with two strong shots that proved to be Royston’s best chances on goal, Fleet returned to Hampshire with the point they had obviously hoped for.
Royston Town: Norris, Endacott, Wilson, De La Salle, McDevitt (Parr), Collins, Edwards (Spencer), Lockett, Bull (Malins), Ingrey, Robins.
