There was to be no fairytale third promotion in four seasons for Daventry Town although it could have been a different story but for a handful of missed scoring chances in the Central Division play-offs final at Hitchin on Bank Holiday Monday.

Daventry’s day was summed up when Russell Dunkley twice hit the framework of the Hitchin goal in a matter of seconds midway through the second-half in front of a couple of coachloads of visiting fans who helped make up the bumper crowd of 1,048.
