Won 4-3

Royston Scorers

Will, Jack N 3


The first time these two sides have met saw a game to remember.

Crows had the better first ten mins but Bassingbourn soon found their feet and played on the floor football that cut open the crows defence.

A mistake let them in and as has happened twice before this season the Crows were 1 down.

Bassingbourn now on the front foot and the Crows panicking saw a penalty and the Crows went 2 down.

After half time Crows went at Bassingbourn from the start and eventually a cross from the left was passed on and Will volleyed in for his first goal for the Crows.

Bassingbourn were not going to give this one up through and another attack saw them get what looked a soft penalty  1-3

With twenty minutes to go not many that do not know the Crows would have given them a chance.

From Bradley in goal to Jack N up front every player raised his game and gave it a go.

Bradley on two occasions was near the halfway line before releasing the ball. Bassingbourn manager said it was like a game on FIFA.

Through balls to Jack N saw 1 goal Then another 3-3.

Bassingbourn tried to hold on to what was a game they had in the bag but the Crows were relentless and Jack N completed his hatrick with two mins to go.

An awesome game with from both sides with Crows showing a fantastic team commitment to come back and win this game.

It was a pleasure to watch …
