Royston Town

Royston romped to the Central Division title last season, 12 points ahead of runners-up Farnborough and 25 ahead of 3rd placed Barton Rovers. This follows two seasons of play-off agony when they finished 2nd twice but lost to Rushden & Diamonds in 2014-15 and then Barton in 2015-16.

Top scorer Scott Bridges was joined in the scoring charts by two Canary legends - John Frendo (21 goals) and Matt Nolan (14) - while Ryan Frater stood out in defence.

The Crows have spent the last 5 seasons in the Central Division and much of the 1980s in the lowest division of the Isthmian League so this will be their first season at Step 3. Although their history dates back to 1876, this will be the first season in which the two sides have met in the league. 

We have met over the years in cup competitions and friendlies. Last season we lost to a single Josh Castiglione goal at Garden Walk in a lacklustre League Cup tie. Our previous encounter in the Charity Cup went no better with a 2-1 defeat at Top Field, with Ben Walster netting for the Canaries.
