Towns 1st team progressed through to the semi final of The Gilgryst Cup after a well earned 1-0 victory over Old Alts at The Oldham Academy.
Town were made to graft for their victory over an hard working Old Alts outfit.Despite having plenty of possession Town failed to capitalise on some excellent football as they spurned chance after chance to open the scoring in the first half.
The second half continued in much the same vein with Town working hard to break down the visitors resilience but when the breakthrough came in the 75th minute it was certainly well worth waiting for as Ash Ainsworth received the ball 30 yards out cut inside a defender & unleashed an unstoppable effort that flew past the keeper to give Town the lead,the remaining 15 minutes saw Royton looking to make the game safe but some sturdy defending from the visitors limited Town to just a single goal victory.
