ROYSTON Vets returned to winning ways with a 7-1 victory over Goldin Old Boys at Hertford in gale force winds on Sunday.

There were a few changes in the Vets' line-up, with Simon Dobson taking over in goal and Stuart Moulding playing his first game for the Vets after a five year absence.

Town started brightly when Peter Leete chipped the home 'keeper from 30 yards out to make it 1-0 and doubled their lead on 20 minutes when Carlo Silenti collected a loose ball on the edge of the penalty area and drove a right foot shot past the 'keeper.

A mistimed pass from Paul Higginbotham gave the opposition an opening which they duly took advantage of to make it 2-1, but it was the only goal they were to get as Town completely dominated the second half.

Leete scored his side's third with a far post header from a pinpoint cross from Adam Smith, and the provider then scored himself with a long high ball that eluded the home 'keeper.

Matt McQueen then added a fifth from close range and Geoff Pinner scored number six with a left foot screamer.

The final goal was scored by Higginbotham with a fine solo effort that saw him dribble from the half-way line, ghost past defenders and finish off with a dribble around the keeper to slot the ball into an empty net.

Royston Town Vets: Dobson, King, Cannon, Smith, Flack, Silenti, Pinner, McQueen, Higginbotham, Leete, Moulding, Allen.
