Royston Ladies 2 Bishop's Stortford II 2
ROYSTON made an excellent comeback to draw with a strong Stortford side from the league above them in a friendly at the weekend.
Stortford applied pressure from the beginning and were rewarded with their first goal early on in the half and Royston were unable to find their form and conceded another before half time, despite excellent defensive play from Vicki Bidwell and Clare Perry.
In the second half Royston came out fighting and demonstrated some slick passing play while they maintained possession and penetrating the Stortford defence.
