Garden Walk, Royston
The second half was only a few minutes old when Histon got a goal back with an unstoppable header that flew past the Royston keeper. Even though it was a friendly pride is a powerful emotion and I expected Histon to throw the kitchen sink at their hosts. This didn't materialise and it was a fairly even second period.
It is always difficult to gauge teams in pre-season games, but I feel Royston should have enough about them to at least make the play-offs in the Southern League Central Division.
A slideshow of thirty photos of the ground and game can be viewed below:
A cracking pre-season double, helped by the glorious weather and Graham Norton not being on Radio 2 but instead was a DJ who I had never heard of before, John Holmes who played some cracking tunes and some banter with his guests. Enjoy "50 Ways To Say Goodbye" by Train:
