REPORT | Barwell 1-2 Royston Town

Barwell fell to a third defeat in a row against Royston on Saturday (September 1).

The game got off to a steady start, with neither team taking control in the opening 15 minutes.

Barwell midfielder Brady Hickey went close when he pulled his low free-kick wide, before Owen Story forced a good save from Will Appleyard after he got on the end of Dominic Brown-Hill's dangerous cross.

Chris Assombalonga proved to be a physical threat for the visitors, causing trouble for Barwell and producing some great stops from Liam Castle to keep the score level.

On 36 minutes, Barwell took the lead as Nigel Julien slipped a lovely through ball to Brady Hickey, who touched the ball around his defender and fired into the bottom corner.

James Potton forced another good save from Castle before a melee in the box saw a Royston shot cleared off the line by Brad Gascoigne.

Bradley Bell fired home from close range to equalise on 75 minutes and ten minutes later, things got worse for Barwell as Jean-Ruben Desrosiers was sent off for a foul just outside the box.

In the final minute of normal time, Callum Ellesley tapped in from close range as Liam Castle was laying motionless on the floor, to the ignorance of referee Bradley Hall.

Man of the Match: Liam Castle
