Royton Town AFC Reserves v Astley & Tyldesley Reserves



Another complete performance by the home team totally domination against a team sitting at the bottom of the division. Royton controlled the game from start to finish and by half time were 7 goals to the good. In the second half Astley started to play and caused Royton some problems .  I think Royton just took the foot of the gas and relaxed a little to much by doing so it allowed Astley into the game and they created a couple of chances .  Royton upped the tempo in the last ten minutes and eventually ran out 10 – 2 winners.. An outstanding performance from Andy Simpson  who lead by example from start to finish even grabbing himself a goal. Zach Gemmill grabbed himself an hatrick for the second week running ,Mark Hopwood another brace also the  veteran Dave Ashworth added one with a great touch to calmly slot home but his team mate Rick Massey out did him with a cheeky flick in the last minute. Also nice to see  Joe Gidley and Lewis Scanlon back after illness and injurys both adding the other 2.
