ROYSTON Town Vets' short trip to Letchworth proved a fruitful one as they continued their impressive early season form with a convincing 5-1 win over Vintage Dundee.
Town took the lead after 10 minutes when Dave Daniels latched on to a fine through ball from Dickie Harris and drove the ball past the home 'keeper.
The hosts were soon on level terms, though, when they caught Town's defence napping to notch an equaliser.

Neither side was able to gain the initiative in a closely contested and scrappy first half in which play became congested on the small pitch.
At the start of the second half Town began to create some openings through the home defence and deservedly took the lead when Paul Lewis maintained his goal scoring form with a deft chip over the 'keeper from a Steve Holden pass.

Continued pressure from Town resulted in a third goal when Matt McQueen tapped in from close range.
With the hosts visibly tiring in the hot sunshine Town added a fourth, and possible the best goal of the game, when Lewis whipped in a cross from the left wing and Paul Higginbotham glanced in a delightful header at the near post.
Town's defence, well-marshalled by Dickie Harris and Brian Cannon, snuffed out any attempts from their hosts attack to get back in the game and as chances continued to arrive at the other end it was no surprise when Nick Humphries raced through to slot in the fifth and final goal.
