ROYSTON under-10s had a busy weekend; they celebrated their new training kit which is sponsored by Howdens Joinery then continued their good form with wins against Biggleswade and Saffron Walden.
In the first match against Biggleswade, Royston started poorly but after winning the ball in the loose Jamie Caldwell passed to Nathan King who picked out Will Tyrell for a try in the corner.
In the second half Royston pushed on and Ashley Jones scored their second try, before Biggleswade got one back to make the final score 2-1.
In the second game there was a far more cohesive performance from Royston with George Cleaver and Cameron Denchfield seeing plenty of the ball but it was Joseph Simons who scored the first try after a sniping run.
Ashley Jones then went on a solo run for the second Royston try and he then scored three more to give his team a good lead.
Biggleswade got back into the game with a couple of tries as the Royston defence went to sleep, but man-of-the-match Jones got two more and Jamie Drage got one to finish the game 7-2.

This marvellous victory was played without coach Jon Simons, who arrived late due to Morris Dancing commitments.
Against Saffron Walden Royston played a high-tempo game and Drage was first to score. Edward Shannon then got on the scoresheet after great work from Jones and James Sharp, and scored two more soon after.
Simons scored Royston's fifth after running half the length of the field before Jack Harvey added the last.
The second game against Saffron was a much tighter affair and Royston's opponents were the first to score, a lead they took into the interval. Royston were better in the second half and scored when Zac Holson powered over the line.
Oscar Ayliffe also went close but it was left to man-of-the-match Shannon to get the winning try with a strong mazy run a few minutes from the end.
