DAVENTRY United suffered a disappointing 6-1 defeat at the hands of St Ives Town in their penultimate game on Saturday.

The heavy defeat saw Conor Washington finish the season at the top of the Premier Division scorecharts after scoring four times in Saints’ victory.

The deadlock was broken by Washington in only the 25th minute. He scored with an impressive strike on the edge of the box.

The goal unsettled the home side and it got worse when the visitors scored another.

Jamie Alsop netted with a diving header straight after as St Ives began to take charge.

Washington added to United’s woes with another goal just past the half hour and Junior McDougald scored the fourth soon after.

But the Motormen refused to give up the fight and Ian Waldock bagged a consolation goal in reply shortly into the second half.

But there was more to come from the visitors and Washington added another two in the 55th and 75th minutes.

The Motormen will hope to sign off with a fairytale finish against Holbeach next Tuesday, weather conditions permitting.
