Royston Town Reserves 0 London Colney Reserves 1

FOR the third game in a row the Crows' second string finished on the losing side by the odd goal.

With such a strong line-up Royston fancied their chances against the current league leaders and started the game very brightly on a hard and icy pitch with Stuart Dalloway and Gary Christie forcing the Colney 'keeper into making comfortable saves.

Both home full-backs John Bitting on the right and the returning Robert Gwynne had ample chances to get forward and cross the ball into dangerous areas but Town lacked that finishing touch.

Royston were forced into a change when Gwynne suffered a reoccurrence of an earlier injury and this seemed to disturb the balance of the side with Colney taking an undeserved lead very soon after his withdrawal.

Royston applied constant pressure to the visitor's goal but again failed to score and the game ended 1-0 to the visitors.
