Royton Town AFC U13’s v Whitworth Valley Hornets U13’s



Royton started the game a little slower than usual but grew into the game,  the key moments of the game started just before the half time whistle.  Royton centre half Alex Wood was judged to have fouled inside the penalty area allowing Whitworth a chanc e to score from the penalty spot.  Luckily Whitworth couldn’t hit the target meaning both sides hit the interval without scoring. Whatever Royton coaches Ben McConnell and Kev Worthington said at half time seemed to have worked as Royton came flying out the trap with some great build up play for Harley to hit home only for the referee to wrongly judge the goal offside, then came Taylor McConnell chance to open the lead for Royton only to find an inform Whitworth goalkeeper.  Then came 3 subs for Royton, two debutants in McKenzie and Ethan, without doubt all 3 changed the game.  Whitworth held strong defensively but with 1 minute to play Royton did take the lead ,Taylor McConnell with a superb finish after some great passing from Royton.  Then came number two this time McKenzie broke the offside trap to lay the ball back for the unmarked Moses who fired into the top corner.

That’s 6 games on the bounce Taylor McConnell has scored in. Well done keep up the good work Taylor.
