Youth team hit six past Kings Langley yet again

Kings Langley Youth 2 Royston Town Youth 6

Royston Town Youth beat Kings Langley 6-2 away from home in the Eastern Junior Alliance on Sunday.

Three weeks ago these two sides produced a 6-4 scoreline at Garden Walk and in the return fixture Royston were once again in fine scoring form as they racked up another welcome three points.

The pitch was excessively heavy underfoot making it hard for the players to produce attractive football. The more direct ball to the front line was always likely to produce the goods for the young Crows with the pace they have in the squad and this often was the case in this game.

After just four minutes Ryan Webb cracked an 18-yard drive into the top corner but this was cancelled out on 12 minutes when a Langley forward broke clear to convert easily.

Within three minutes Royston had scored two more goals with Jordan Spencer hitting a fine 14-yard strike straight from kick-off while Webb scored his second moments later in Royston’s next attack.

Both teams then contrived to create chances to keep both goals under threat but Royston made the game safe on 60 minutes in freakish style when Luke Hennessey’s long ball forward from the halfway line bounced over the keeper’s head and into the net.
