By half time the score stood at 2-1, but Royston came out for the second half and throughout made some very good moves down the right with Sam Polge, Michael Welding, Simon Campbell and Paul Bloomfield linking well.
Visage had a several efforts miss closely, likewise from Bateman and Bloomfield, but Vauxhall were quick on the break and despite some hard work by Matt Brunt, Dan Taylor, Mike Parsons, Josh Jameison and Gary Pinner in goal they could not be held and the final result was a score of 5-1.
Royston should not be too disappointed in this result as overall the team played extremely well under the circumstances.
