Royston Town Ladies 1 Cambridge Utd 0

IN a closely contested game between the two derby rivals, Town managed to secure an important victory.

The early exchanges favoured the U's with the pace of their attack providing some anxious moments for the Royston defence.

However, Royston gradually got into their stride with Laura Foulger dominating the midfield. And the hosts' pressure nearly paid dividends when a series of corners created good opportunities for both Claire Ratty and Jody Scott to give Royston the lead.

In the second half the home side began to dominate possession with Sophie Boval leading the line and Scott switching from the back four to support the Royston attack.

And they got their breakthrough when Laura Foulger's surging run released Emma Chaffey, who chipped the ball over the advancing U's keeper.

Then excellent defending by skipper Vicky Foulger and two great saves from keeper Amy Walker secured all three points for Royston.

- After 11 years with the club Sunday's victory was the last for Jody Scott who is moving north where she will join Coventry City Ladies.

Town's manager Kevin Foulger said: "Jody is a quality player who always gives 100 per cent - she will be missed.
