What a fantastic game from start to finish. A great spectacle on how the game should be played by both teams both wanting to win and gain a place in the final. Royton should of been two up inside the first 20 mins. Elton did break the deadlock against the run of play and by half time they was 2 goals to the good. Royton did not buckle under the pressure and started the second half far the better team. Elton Vale are top of league above Royton so this game was by no means easy. Quality opponents but it was the visitors who who looked very much under pressure . The young guys from Royton totally dominated the second half and got the goals to draw level .Every player from Royton was outstanding and deserved to win this game.. The last minute of the game Royton hit the post that surely if that would gone in it would of gained them a place in the final. As a result from the ball bouncing of the post Elton pushed forward and got themselfs a last ditch corner and resulting from the corner got the winner. All credit to Elton Vale they looked a very good side understandably that is why they are top of their respective league. And all credit to them after the game they congratulated Royton Town AFC not by being big headed they actually appreciated that they had been involved in very tough game… RESPECT GUYS.. Good luck in the final from all at Royton Town AFC. To watch this game was a pleasure i am so proud of all the players and the management at Royton Town AFC ..
