Royton Town AFC v Heyside



Towns 1st team had a superb 5-2 win over local rivals Heyside FC at The Oldham Academy on Saturday.
Town fell behind in the 9th min when Heyside took an early lead but Joe Heap brought Town level 3 mins later with a superb free kick from 25yards out that flew into the top corner.The game was turning into a cracking contest & despite both sides creating chances as they sought an advantage to take the lead before half time the score remained at 1-1 at the break.
Within 10 mins of the start of the second half Town went 3-1 up with goals from Aaron Holton & another stunning strike from Joe Heap that bettered his 1st goal,Town then furthered their lead as Liam Wood made it 4-1 on the hour. Heyside then started to look at getting back into the game & they began to test Town but some excellent defending & a couple of fine saves from young keeper Harry Fleet kept them at bay.The visitors then introduced former Town player Carl Caffrey into the fray & they pulled a goal back from a caffers shot that rebounded to another Royton old boy Alan Beckett who slotted home in the 80th min to make it 4-2, Lewis Jones had the final say in the game as he made it 5-2 to give Town a well deserved victory.
A superb performance from Town which has been coming despite recent results as they played some excellent football against a good Heyside outfit.
Hard to select a M.O.M.but Craig Schumann was outstanding in an excellent team performance.
