Royston Town will host Southern Premier side Hitchin Town in the Southern League Challenge Cup first round following last night’s (Thursday) draw.

Goals from Gary Hart and skipper Scott Bridges ensured a Crows victory in the pair’s previous meeting - 2-1 in the Herts Charity Cup last four at Top Field in November 2014.

Steve Castle’s men reached the third round of last season’s Challenge Cup before going down 1-0 at home to Southern Premier outfit Corby Town at Garden Walk.

Hitchin’s visit to Garden Walk is scheduled for the week commencing Monday, October 3.
