Thrapston Town 1 Eynesbury Rovers 4

SPIRITED Eynesbury kept to their managers' pledge of playing entertaining football with a fine win at Thrapston.

Three first-half goals set them on the way to victory and although the hosts fought back after the break, they rarely threatened Danny Workman in the visitors' goal.

Town stepped up a gear after the break but never created any clear-cut opportunities and Rovers extended their lead through substitute Dave Goodall on 73 minutes.
