A spate of injuries cost Royston Celtic Crusaders Under-13s dearly, as they lost 7-4 at home to Littleport.

Goals from Sam Cooper and Elliot Burr put Celtic 2-0 up, but a number of injuries meant a lot of positional changes had to be made for the second half.

Littleport roared back to take a 3-2 lead, but Burr's second of the game got his side level once more.

However, Littleport took full advantage of a Crusaders backline now in disarray, and added four more goals.

Man of the match Ryan Geraghty got a final strike back for Celtic.
