Aylesbury produced a fine performance to beat newly crowned Champions of the league Royston Town 3-0 at Bell Close.

Two first half goals from leading scorer Stacey Field and a second half header from Melford Simpson saw off the Crows who were barely at the races.

With the league decided, Royston will cite other priorities such as two cup finals, and whilst its true they rested certain players and were without suspended top scorer Kaan Fehmi, there weren't wholesale changes to their team.

Aylesbury were simply more determined from the off, and had the ball in the net after just ten minutes when Field netted at the second attempt after awful hesitancy between keeper and defence.

He added his second following a fine move involving Simpson and Garcia, and there could have been more goals as Barnett hit the bar and Field wasted a one-on-one.

Simpson had the easy task of heading home a third from Field's pinpoint cross after the break, and although the Crows had chances Jack Sillitoe never didn't have a save to make.

Field spurned a glorious opportunity to wrap up his hat-trick, but Aylesbury will be more than happy with their result.

With Tring convincingly beating Haringey Borough elsewhere, the race for 4th place is still alive going into the final week of the season.
