Looking back – Blues v Crows

Categories: Uncategorized

When Royston Town arrive at the ProKit UK Stadium on New Year’s Day it will be our first ever league meeting with the Crows.

The few previous encounters with them have been in cup matches and Blues’ supporters Andrew Bubien has chosen the programme for our East Anglian Cup first round match from the 1988/9 season to look back at.

Royston were in the Isthmian League Division Two North at the time and the Blues had a relatively comfortable 4-1 away win.

Three of the Blues’ side listed in the programme for that night – Devon Gayle, Pat Ryan and Terry Milbourne – have had sons who’ve gone on to play for the Blues’ first team.

Stortford then went onto beat Arlesey Town, Harlow Town and Baldock Town to reach the semi-final before losing 2-0 at Aveley.
