Dave Northfield’s reign at Eynesbury came to a dramatic conclusion yesterday.
Matty Bannister hit a stoppage-time winner as Rovers sank Wisbech Town 1-0 at Hall Road.
It was a second successive United Counties League Premier Division triumph for a team who will be under the management of new boss Mark Ducket as of tomorrow. Northfield reverts to his Under 21 role.
Rovers goalkeeper Nathan George had earlier made a couple of vital saves and, even when he was beaten, defender Ben Hickling headed off the line.
Huntingdon were out of action after a sickness bug in the Town camp forced the postponement of their bottom-versus-top clash at Leicester Nirvana.
