Huntingdon Town saved their best until last yesterday – by recording their biggest win of the United Counties League Division One season in their final home fixture.
The floodgates were well and truly opened at Jubilee Park as Jimmy Brattan’s men thumped Melton Town 7-0.
Five of the goals arrived in the first half with Liam Rodden’s opener being quickly followed by a Jonny Hall header. A Corey Kingston brace then sandwiched a Richard Baines effort.
Baines struck again in the second period before James Seymour completed a high-scoring success.
Eynesbury stretched their unbeaten United Counties League Premier Division run to eight matches with a smooth away success.
Striker James Tricks struck twice in a 3-0 victory at Desborough which also featured a Hayden Bream goal.
Only Cogenhoe can now deny Rovers a third successive top-six finish, but the Northamptonshire side need to win all four of their remaining games.

Godmanchester Rovers sealed a fourth-placed finish in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division by thumping rock-bottom Wivenhoe.
Ollie Drake’s men roared to a 6-1 success at the David Wilson Homes Ground to ensure a morning effort to get their pitch into a playable condition was worthwhile.
Ben Yeomans followed up a hat-trick in a Thursday victory at Fakenham with two more goals. Defender Tom Moran, midfielder Simon Unwin, full-back Reece King and substitute Jack Chandler also found the net while the visitors claimed a consolation from the penalty spot.
