Mar­ket­men end Town tril­ogy on top

The Non-League Football Paper - - SATURDAY MATCH CENTRE - By Dun­can Easley

THE Roys­ton-Need­ham Mar­ket tril­ogy played out over the last week came to an end as the Mar­ket­men recorded a com­fort­able vic­tory at Gar­den Walk.

Roys­ton started the live­lier but found them­selves a goal down in the sev­enth minute, as diminu­tive winger Adam Mills con­verted a header from a near post cor­ner de­liv­ered by Gareth Heath.

Roys­ton al­most replied im­me­di­ately, but David Mooney poked his shot wide when week placed.

The Crows were how­ever level in the 27th minute, as Vance Bola cooly lobbed over away keeper Jake Jes­sup, hav­ing latched onto Joe Welch’s long punt for­ward.

The Mar­ket­men re­stored their lead as Reece Dob­son fired in from 20 yards, but Bola en­sured Roys­ton went into the break on level terms af­ter a fine in­di­vid­ual run and shot re­stored par­ity.

The game was ef­fec­tively de­cided in the first five min­utes of the sec­ond half. Three min­utes in Mills un­leashed a shot that took a big enough de­flec­tion to beat the scram­bling Welch and two min­utes later Dob­son pounced on a loose ball to drill home.

And with Roys­ton not think­ing things could get worse, a sec­ond yellow card for Adam Mur­ray en­sured the Crows had an af­ter­noon to for­get.
