Royston Town's win on the road at St Ives Town may have been convincing but there was still one uncertainty hanging over the Crows camp at the end - did Brandon Adams score four or five?

Matt Bateman was adamant that it was only four and that his effort had bounced over the line before coming out.

But like all good strikers, Adams made sure it was over the line and he was in no doubt what the answer to the question was.

"It was five," he said with a broad beam. "To be fair I didn’t see if it went in or not, I just saw it in front of goal so I’ve run in and hit it. 

"I asked the linesman and he gave it to me so I’ll take it." 

The 7-1 win was yet another step in the right direction for the Crows, making it four league wins on the bounce and five in six undefeated Southern League outings.

Bateman definitely got one of them and Harry Draper, his first for the club, was the other scorer.

Adams though believes there is still plenty more to come.
