TOWN'S Vets ran out comfortable winners against Vintage Dundee at St Christopher's School, Letchworth, on Sunday.
Royston created several good openings in the opening 15 minutes, but saw the hosts take the lead with keeper Merv Chaffey beaten from outside the box.
However, Town were soon on level terms when Nick Humphries' cross was headed home by Kevin Barthrop midway through the first half.
From the start of the second half Town began to dominate play and deservedly went ahead when Glen Humphries' header left the home keeper stranded.

Paul Lewis then helped extend the lead when he latched onto a long through ball from Dave Cooper, before a Dundee defender deflected a cross into his own net for number four.
The fifth and final Royston goal came from a flowing move that ended with Matt McQueen coolly slotting home his first goal for the Vets.
Vintage Dundee came back strongly in the last 10 minutes and although they were thwarted when Chaffey made a brilliant penalty save, they were rewarded with a close range strike.
Town entertain Buntingford Vets at Garden Walk on Sunday.
