The visitors were at their most threatening when crosses from Jill Birch and Sarah Farmer put Royston in the running for an early goal, but it was all to no avail.

Welwyn's first goal was opportunistic and came from a long ball down the pitch which found their centre forward to beat keeper Ali Carroll with sheer power.
