Govan Athletic Reserves v Royton Town AFC Reserves



A fantastic game of football played by Roytons young lads. Total control from the first minute to the last. The team looked relaxed after a week off and full of running. The score line does not reflect on the result Royton should of been five up in the first half with a dominant display but goes to show they can miss. Goven were always on the back foot and were totally out played for all of the game..Royton looked confident in every department . Young Rowen Thorpe had a fantastic game at the back just calmly picking his passes and even the odd run forward creating the first goal with a superb run with the ball of about 50 yards before a neat pass to Faria to slot home with ease. Faria added to his tally just before half time .  The second half was more of the same but Goven were given a free kick 25 yards out and as a result pulled one back but it never flustered Royton within minutes another surge forward and another corner with Will Morgan timing his run to perfection bang 3-1 game over.  Royton just looked comfortable and was an easy 3 points in the end.

Farai Hwenga scored two on possibly is last game for the club and he will be sorely missed by all at Royton Town AFC hes been a massive presence for Royton leading the line and scoring many goals within his time at the club.  We wish you all the best Farai a massive thank you from Paul & Duncan and all those whose support the club.
