Taylor Parr was the St Neots matchwinner when he scored from a Luke Knight corner eight minutes into the second half of a balanced contest.
It was only his fifth goal for St Neots on his ninety-third appearance, but it had an unusual air of deja-vu because on 29th October 2016 he scored the winning goal in a 3-2 FA Trophy victory at Bedworth.
The welcome three points were no less than St Neots deserved because they dominated possession at times and created more chances than their visitors.
However, Manager Matt Clements will probably view his side as work in progress because apart from not converting chances their defence lost a number of aerial battles – an area in which they excelled last season.
Nevertheless, it was an improved performance from the opening day, but they had teenage goalkeeper Finlay Iron to thank for some excellent timely saves.
