Mangrove 0 Royston Town A 5

NATHAN Davenport's hat-trick inspired Royston to another comprehensive victory with a valuable three points away from home.

And it was an impressive showing from the young striker, whose partnership alongside Lee Bates caused the hosts problems from the off, with Davenport heading home Rob Gwynne's well-taken corner.

Royston's defence was once again in complete control, with Richard Lowden and Michael Baker keeping the Mangrove attack at bay.

Bates then got in on the action, and after playing a smart one-two with Brad Jackson, the striker smashed the ball past a stranded Mangrove keeper.
