The Southern Division One Central title remains tantalisingly close for Royston Town following their eight-goal thriller at home to Kempston Rovers.

Going into this match there was an outside chance that if the result of Farnborough’s trip to Hanwell went the Crows’ way and Royston won this match that they could end the day as champions.

There was a five-minute spell when all the planets aligned, but the day finished as a slight disappointment as Farnborough came back from a goal down to win 4-1 and the Crows, despite being up 3-1 and 4-2 in this game versus play-off chasing Kempston, squandered their lead to draw the match 4-4.

Scott Bridge, Matt Nolan (two) and Ryan Ingrey were all on target.

Royston travel to Northwood this weekend still looking for three points that will almost do it with the Crows’ superior goal difference still evident – but four points over the next five games will land them the title.
