Belsize Park 3 Royston 29
ROYSTON travelled to London with a varied mix of experience and youth, to take on Belsize Park in this Herts & Middlesex League 2 clash. Youngster Ben Ritsema made the breakthrough when his clever play freed the speedy Andy Smith to finish in style in the corner.
Then Ritsema collected the ball and waltzed over the line following fine play from veteran centres Steve Clay and Daniel Fox.
With a 10-0 lead going into the break, Royston denied the hosts with some highly impressive defensive play. However, Belsize were awarded a penalty from which they scored their only points of the game.
