Scott Bridges celebrates for Royston Daventry Town

Royston Town failed their promotion litmus test as they were hammered 4-0 at Bedworth United in Southern League Central Division One.

It looked like it could be a tough afternoon early on as Daniel Creeney’s downward header opened the scoring on six minutes.

Scott Bridges almost levelled for the Crows but his volley, that beat keeper Denham Hinds, was cleared off the line by Mark Albrighton.

That was the closest Royston came to delivering a first-half equaliser and they were soon behind in the second half.

Daniel Dubidat was quickest to react to Alex Naughton’s cross to force the ball beyond keeper Ron Yates.

Naughton went from provider to scorer as he slid the ball under Yates for 3-0 in the 69th minute and it was curtains for the Crows two minutes from the end as Dave Blenkinsopp made it four.
