ROYSTON Town Vets completed their home fixtures for the season with a hard-earned 2-1 victory over old rivals Sandy Vets.

With the pace of Kevin Barthrop and Nick Humphries stretching the visitors' defence, chances started to fall to Town.

After 20 minutes Paul Lewis latched on to a loose ball on the edge of the box and calmly slotted home Town's first goal.

The lively and youthful Sandy forward line began to create some pressure but Town's defence remained in control. With Holden winning the ball in midfield and creating openings Town looked the more likely to team to score.

A good move down the left put Lewis away and his pin-point cross into the six-yard area was met by Daryl Quinn who made no mistake from close range.

Colin MacArthur went close to extending Town's lead but his shot was well-saved at point blank range.
