Manchester Gregorians Res v Royton Town AFC Res



Towns new look young reserve side consisting of only 3 players from last seasons squad played their 1st league game of the season & were involved in a nine goal thriller at Belle Vue Stadium as they faced a vastly experienced Manchester Greg’s outfit.
In an end to end contest from start to finish Towns young lads competed excellently against a well established Greg’s side & more than matched their opponents throughout the game with the lead changing hands on three occasions until they conceded what turned out to be the winning goal (which had a touch of suspicion of offside)in the 83rd minute to make it 5-4 to the home side. A deflating result for the ressies as they deserved at least a share of the spoils in their 1st competitive game, but plenty of optimism for the future for the management team.
16 year old keeper

Lucas Fitzsimons

who despite conceding 5 goals made a few good saves & showed some good handling & kicking.

PS. Ball boy wanted for home fixtures.😁
