THE under 10 Templars were denied victory thanks to a last gasp equaliser by top-of-the-table Royston Town. An excellent first-half header from Lewis Archer had initially put Baldock in front.

The Crusaders kept their commanding lead at the top of their division, after a neat strike by Kain Linnell saw off Royston Town B.

The under 10 Knights and Lancers together with opponents Sawbridgeworth provided a hatful of goals in their matches.

The Knights unfortunately were on the wrong end of a 6-1 defeat with George Hewitt getting the Knights goal.

Top scorer Kier Boyd claimed a hat-trick, with James Rist and Piers Austin also finding the target.

The under 11 Templars gained ample revenge for an earlier defeat at the hands of Royston Town, as goals from Jordan Massey and Ryan Savage earned them a 2-1 victory, while the under 11 Lancers slipped to a 6-1 defeat against Bishop's Stortford United.
