Corner king Joshua Coldicott-Stevens achieved a rare scoring feat as Royston Town capped an impressive display with a 4-1 victory over promotion-chasing Mickleover to sit eighth in the Southern League Premier Division Central table.

To score once from a corner is relatively unusual, but Coldicott-Stevens did it twice – and claimed an assist from another – as Chris Watters’ side triumphed.

The hosts got off to the perfect start after just three minutes when Coldicott-Stevens’ low cross from a corner found Charlie Johnson and he finished with a back heel, beating the keeper at his near post to open his goalscoring account for the Crows.

The lead was doubled from another corner in the second half, but this time Coldicott-Stevens’ delivery went straight into the net to make it 2-0.

Mickleover got back into the game from a header and they pressed for an equaliser, almost getting it from a goalmouth scramble the hosts were able to clear.

Not content with scoring once from a corner, Coldicott-Stevens incredibly repeated the trick in the 90th minute to ensure Royston gained the three points.

Alfie Williams applied the gloss a minute later when he was through one on one with the keeper and added the fourth goal.

The Under-23s lost 2-1 at Winslow United in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One with Charlie Castle scoring the consolation goal.

Royston Town Women’s game was called off on Sunday due to a waterlogged pitch.
