Royston Town v Stanway Rovers, FA Vase Third Round preview

Saturday, December 5 - 3pm KO

Where: Garden Walk, Royston.

Who: Stanway Rovers are managed by Steve Downey after the man from Northern Ireland took over in the summer from joint managers Rob Bate and Paul Symes.

Last season the club finished ninth in the Ridgeons (Eastern Counties) Premier Division - it was their third season in the league after promotion in 2006 - and they made it to the fourth round of the FA Vase where they were knocked out by St Ives Town 2-0 in a replay.

They also won the Ridgeons League Cup 4-2 on penalties against Leiston at Diss Town last year.

Season so far: Stanway come into Saturday's FA Vase match on the back of a 2-1 win over Kirkley and Pakefield in the league on Saturday.

Although currently fourth in the league, Stanway have hit some patchy form recently, having won just once in their last five league games.

If he plays, Sam Newston is Stanway's danger man. The striker has hit 12 goals in his side's last eight games. He is the twin brother of midfielder Ben.
