Hitchin Belles Ladies v Royston Ladies
The Ladies played in their first County Cup quarter-final and came across a Royston side who showed why they play 3 divisions higher. Belles gave Royston far too much respect in the 1st half and were duly punished. Belles went behind early but showed determination to equalise after 10 minutes. It was then one way traffic for the remainder. The Belles competed better and tried to force play but Royston's technical ability on the ball was the difference as they showed Hitchin no mercy with clinical finishing in front of goal.
