St Neots Town jumped seven places up the Southern League Premier Division standings with victory last night.

Top-scorer Tom Meechan hit the only goal in a 1-0 triumph over Dunstable at the Premier Plus Stadium.

Meechan converted his 18th goal of the seven after Ryan Hawkins had helped a long Jamie Anton ball into his path seven minutes before the break.

But Meechan’s former club Godmanchester Rovers suffered FA Vase disappointment as they crashed out in a first round replay.

Rovers went down 2-1 at Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division rivals Mildenhall as the two sides met for the fourth time in as many weeks.
