Welwyn Pegasus Royals marched into the fourth round of the Herts U16 Challenge Cup after a 3-1 win over Tring Tornadoes Panthers.

Goals from Tyler Brunt, Conor Garrett and Harry Sugg were enough to set up a clash at Royston Town Crows in January.

Welwyn enjoyed a much bigger share of the possession in the first half and with a high pressing game they were able to put Tring under a lot of pressure.

Eventually that had an effect with Brunt pouncing on a defensive error to open the scoring before Garrett doubled the lead with a first-time shot to the keeper's right from inside the area.

The Tornadoes started the second half better though and were able to pull a goal back but any hopes they had of a comeback were finished by a gem of a goal from Sugg.

Lounis Guemache and Alex Manhood both had chances to finish the game off but Welwyn were more than content with the three and the win.
