A SUPERB Jordan Campbell strike helped Royston Town Colts win the first under 10 Herts County Cup Final, with a thrilling 3-2 win over Hemel Hempstead Youth at Letchworth's County Ground.

They got off to a flier when captain Matthew Stout and Reece King combined to find Jake Long unmarked in the box for the opener.

In a closely fought match, King also got his name on the scoresheet when he met a well-worked right wing cross before half time.

With Royston keeper Corey Anderson in fine form at one end, it was left to Campbell to hit a sweet strike to seal the win.

Royston manager, John Campbell said: "This was a fantastic result and the boys made me proud.

"To get this far has been unbelievable, and to be the first under-10 club to win the cup is a great honour."

Squad: Richard Jonas, Jordan Campbell, Matthew Stout, Corey Anderson, Jack Jeffris, Jake Long, Reece King, Stephen Thake.
