Kentish Town 3 Royston 2
THE Crows suffered a narrow defeat away to Kentish Town on Wednesday evening in the South Midlands Challenge Trophy.
Goals from Ricky Young and Jamie Morriss weren't enough for Royston to beat their Premier Division opponents in front of a crowd of just 12 people in Hendon.
Royston manager Paul Attfield said: "Only six of last Saturday's squad made the trip to Kentish Town. The rest was made up of reserve and youth team players.

"The heavy frost made life difficult for both teams but overall I felt we should have won.
"A few naive moments at either end of the pitch cost us as we conceded a couple of poor goals from crosses in the first half and despite dominating the second and creating enough chances we weren't quite clinical enough to add to our tally.
