|Match||Standon & Puckeridge v Royston Town
|Royston Scorers||Matt Standon(4), Fehmi(3), Ingrey, Collins, Bronti|
The Crows opened their pre-season campaign with a stunning display of finishing as an entertaining game played at fast pace throughout finished with an impressive scoreline. Their County League opposition played a full part in the entirety of the game but were often caught out with the shear quality of creativity and finishing that Paul Attfield's side produced.
New signings Lee Wilson and Ryan Ingrey both had impressive debuts within the side with five goals being scored in each half. The attacking options for The Crows manager looks envious on paper and on this evidence could be quite frightening.
In the first 45 minutes Matt Standen hit a fine hat trick with Kaan Fehmi converting an equally impressive brace.
In the second half Fehmi completed his hat trick from the penalty spot before Matt Standen added his fourth with further goals from Ross Collins, Josh Bronti and Ryan Ingrey on debut completing the scoring
Squad: Norris, Endacott, Debnam, Collins, Bradshaw, Wilson, Lockett, Edwards, Bronti, Robins, Fehmi, Matt Standen, Ingrey
