Good Friday game brings biggest win of season

This afternoon’s (Easter Monday) derby game with Daventry has been postponed.

A statement on the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League website says: “It is with regret that due to Daventry Town being unable to field a team for the First Division South fixture away to Rugby Town the match is postponed.

“The Northern Premier League will not be making any further statement with regards to Daventry Town Football Club until such time a discussion has taken place as to the ability of the club to complete the season’s fixtures.”

Daventry are currently struggling, fourth from bottom of the table.

It will be a huge disappointment to fans, especially following Rugby Town’s excellent showing at Romulus on Friday, when they produced their biggest win of the season so far, with a 5-1 scoreline, lifting them up to seventh in the table.

Romulus, now 12th spot, scored first in Friday evening’s encounter after a quarter of an hour, but Callum Powell levelled just five minutes later.

Then in a dramatic last couple of minutes of the half, David Kolodynski put Rugby ahead and Mitchell Piggon made it 3-1.

Ten minutes after the break, Kolodynski scored his second and Kevin Thornton rounded off Valley’s handful of goals in the 67th for a very comfortable margin of victory.
