Chances went begging for Royston as The Crows searched for an equaliser, although their play was disrupted further when they lost both Aaron Williams and Michael Baker through injury.
An entertaining second half saw the hosts extend their lead with another well-taken strike, before Ashley Townsend restored some hope with a brilliant volleyed finish.
However, Caddington held on, and despite The Crows going close, the hosts did enough to secure all three points.
Royston manager John Bloss said: "This defeat was hard to accept.
"For long periods of the game we were in total control and we played by far the better football.
"We just failed to turn the possession into goals.
