Royston U13s cruise to victory over Chelmsford

ROYSTON RFC U13s claimed a convincing 27-10 victory against a strong Chelmsford B side at the weekend.

It had been six weeks since Royston’s last game and the rustiness showed at the start of the match. Chelmsford scored a try in the fifth minute and it wasn’t until 10 minutes later before Rhys Deer scored the equalising try after racing clear from several challenges.

With the score 5-5 at half time, replacements Will Gapper, John Busher and debutant Tom Parry entered the contest.

Chelmsford scored a try at the start of the second half but skipper Jacob Boyce equalised almost immediately. Eddie Twyman then outpaced the Chelmsford defence to touch down in the corner.

Strong forward play by James Reeder and Cameron Bonfield enabled James Shannon to score a deserved try. Ben Ireland notched one conversion and made skilful runs forward, aided by Max Ayliffe and scrum-half Dominic Dunklin.

Tyler Boyne and Dan Jones enjoyed strong runs into Chelmsford territory and Joseph Gilhooly never stopped working.

Rhys Redrup scored Royston’s final try after fine work by forwards Man of the Match James Meecham and Backs Man of the Match Charlie Capewell.
