IN a busy week for Royston Town Vets, playing two games in six days, The Crows came away with two comfortable victories.

Royston saw off a strong Cambridge Vets side with an emphatic 4-0 win, courtesy of debutant Ian Gill's double, and one each from Paul Lewis and Kevin Barthrop.

And following on from that impressive victory, Royston then ran out comfortable 3-1 winners against Therfield-based Fox and Duck Vets.

Daryl Quinn gave The Crows the lead midway through the first half, with Carlo Silenti and Steve Holden also going close for a second.

Lewis created a number of chances for the hosts, only to see Hardman thwart him time and again.

However, Lewis had the last laugh when he fired home Royston's third with a confident penalty.

A determined and spirited Fox and Duck pulled one back, with Whiffin driving the ball home in the final minute.
