In the only Royston Hockey Club fixture of the weekend, the men’s 2nds beat Cheshunt 1sts 4-2 in a re-arranged league match.
The Crows made the trip earlier in the month only for the game to be abandoned due to adverse weather conditions.
It was the hosts who had a majority of the play in the early exchanges but the Royston rear guard stood firm.
As the half drew on Royston were gaining more of a foothold with Matthew Allsopp and Graham Johnson-Mack linking up well in the middle of the park and finding the forwards with through balls.
After a couple of chances went begging, Royston took the lead when Lyndon Farmer capped a good move between Mark Jacobs and Jacob Gourd with the opening goal.

Royston extended their lead through Owen Russell as he rushed on to another through ball by Johnson-Mack. He was able to the round the keeper and slot the ball into the vacant net.
Cheshunt did manage to drag another goal back at the death and despite a lot of bluster and vociferous activity they could not get anymore. Royston saw out the final few minutes to take the points.
