Stratford drop two points against Royston Town

Stratford Editorial 4th Dec, 2022   0

STRATFORD Town dropped two points last weekend as the Bards dominated against Royston Town at the Arden Garages Stadium but had to settle with a frustrating 1-1 draw as chances went begging.

The result leaves Stratford fifth from bottom in the Southern Premier Central and will be desperate for a first win in seven fixtures when they head to Keys Park. Hednesford have won just once all season

Stratford have registered just  one victory in 11 outings but they will wonder how they failed to beat Royston.

The Rooks had beaten Town in ths FA Trophy and stunned the hosts when they grabbed the lead through Cole Dasilva’s first-half strike before Mikey Taylor tucked home the equaliser midway through the second period with a close-range finish.




Taylor had been denied an early penalty while Royston keeper Dimitrios Kyriatzis produced heroics to deny Ahmed Obeng and Will Grocott.

“Frustrating, very very frustrating,” was the verdict from striker Taylor.


“I thought we’ve done well but we’re not getting the rub of the green at the minute.”

The forward told Town’s website that they need to start producing. Asked if he felt they had a good team in the making, Taylor said: “Yeah, but for how long?

“At the end of the day you’ve got to be realistic. It doesn’t matter how many good players you’ve got one to 11, it’s not good enough.

“We’re not getting the results on the pitch, so people can get chopped. So if you’ve got aspirations to kick on and do anything this season, we have got to go at it now. Starting from Saturday, we have to get wins.”

After the trip to Hednesford, the Bards head to Alvechurch for a rearranged league clash on Tuesday.
