Royton Town AFC v Chadderton Reserves



A tough fixture against our local rival but one we are expected to win. The game never got going in the first half both teams cancelling each other out but it was a touch of class from Joe Heaps left foot that broke  the deadlock curling the ball into the top left corner from 25 yards out. Chadderton finally woke up and bounced back grabbing two goals with in the space of 15 mins 2-1 half time. Royton started the second half on the front foot especially Craig Schumann he was the danger man and was causing the Chadderton back line all sorts of problems. He broke free and drove the ball home with a spectacular shot way out on the right wing he could not of hit it any sweeter and it sailed straight into the roof of the net from 20 yards out. Royton had the momentum now and carried on driving the ball forward and added another 3 goals Luke Heron, Aaron Houlton & Ash Ainsworth bagging the others.. The game was coming to the close 86 mins gone and unfortunately for both teams the referee abandoned the game ..Not a pretty site to watch both teams should of known better leaving the referee no choice to call time. Being a spectator at the match the game was played fair and hard by both teams unfortunately the game erupted in the last 5 minutes very disappointing to see not a proud Royton lad at the moment. Both teams are better than that and should be ashamed.
