Royce Rangers U9s beat Ravenstone Royals 3-1 to record their eighth win in row and stay top of the table.

The home side soon turned up the heat on a bitterly cold afternoon with Archie Cornwall opening the scoring.

He had an excellent first half, taking up some great forward positions and was soon rewarded with a second to give the home side a two goal lead at the break.

Although Royce dominated the first half, the visitors came out strongly in the second making it a busier period for defenders Josh Grace and Callum Worthington, with goalkeeper Luke Wilkinson also being called into action.

Ollie Cox gave a tireless performance and was effective when switched to central midfield, impressing with some dazzling runs.

Thomas Czarnota scored a third with 12 minutes to play, taking his season tally to 10.

Ravenstone pulled a goal back with a well worked move.

Royce Rangers: Luke Wilkinson, Josh Grace, James Connor, Callum Worthington, Ollie Cox, Jack Butterfill, Thomas Czarnota, Sam Jeal, Archie Cornwall, Aidan Quinn.
