Another tough pre season fixture against a very youthful New Mills team from the Northwest countys League..Royton started the game very nervous. New Mills went on the attack from the start and with in seven minutes were 2 goals up..Royton rallied and eventually settled down .. Royton progressed more into the game and started to look good playing some neat and tidy football. Once the nerves settled Royton grabbed a goal from the penalty spot and from then on looked a different team..Then another goal by Royton 2-2 New mills looked shocked. But just before half time New Mills took the lead again. Five minutes into the second half Cameron Horner popped up to level the game again with is second of the evening…Royton were in the game until the 70th minute were a lot of the players tired having only one sub.. New MIlls had seven subs and there freshness started to reflect on the game.. Royton ended up losing 9 – 3.. But give Royton some credit they werent out played by the highly ranked visitors. For much of the game it was pretty much evens. Credit to all the lads who played ..
