ROYSTON Town's superb FA Vase run continued on Saturday as Dave McMurrough came off the Crows bench to score the winner.
And after conceding a goal after 22 minutes, the hosts were again forced to dig deep with Town's strikers coming to the rescue.

After the break it was much of the same for Harpenden with their route one tactics dominating their play as goal scorer Chris Gregory threatened with his powerful running.
And Gregory was unlucky not to put his side back in front 10 minutes into the half when another ball over the top was finished with a tame strike straight at Royston keeper James Scott.
Snowden then replaced midfielder Eddie Julu after 65 minutes, with his replacement Dave McMurrough making an immediate impression.
Battling for every ball and chasing down the Harpenden backline it was no wonder he scored the winner.
And when Scott's long clearance eluded the visitors defence, McMurrough gambled to rob Harpenden keeper Matt Belk with a scrambled diving header.
Snowden said: "It was a good performance today, and it was a great finish from Dave. He's a nuisance to play against and will always get us a goal."
- Royston Town: Scott; Chappell, Geldart, Daniels, Reid; Edwards, Snowden, Julu (McMurrough), Morgan, Rogers; Tibbals.
