Away cup match played on 16 October 2022.
Kicked off at 3:00 PM

Today we travel to Fleetwood town on the back of a below par performance the previous day.The ground and facilities are top notch not only do we have beer on tap but also the thought of Fish n Chips on the way home. Before we get to carried away we have to get past our oponnets today Fleetwood Town.The boys are warming up and you can see the boys sizeing each other up.Fleetwood seem to have size on ther side but this doesnt faze the boys from Royton. We line up ready to go Fleetwood get us on the way and no sooner than i can take the froth off my pint James is called into action with a good save tipping the ball onto the bar with the ball rebounding back into play. Fleetwood look confident and it seems their number 8 has the genes of a Gazzelle.Hes fast and very strong and is giving Harvey Albert a hard time on the left.We gain possesion and transfter the ball through our midfield Saif picks up the ball and is giving Fleetwood plenty to think about.There keeper plays out which leads to a fantastic chance by Saif the keeper saves but we should be 1 up.Ive not seen Saif play before but this lad has legs and can definatly play. The game is played at a good tempo with Jamers in Goal called on again to parry a incoming shot.James clears the ball up field.Boy! thats some clearence.Fleetwood attack again and break through our defence slotting a shot into the bottom left of the goal giving James no chance.9 Mins 1-0 Fleetwood.

We need to hold play tight here as these lads are gaining in confidence.We hold the ball out on our right through Colby he plays a lovley ball through to henry who has timed his run perfectly.He turns and calmly slots in Joe who plays in Ethan he takes the ball in his stride and buries the ball hard and low into the bottom corner.Great goal 11 Mins 1-1

Royton start to find there feet and belive they can beat this team James makes two great saves in succesion one being a looping effort that could of caught him out but he manages to tip it over the bar the other a long range shot dealt with calmly. Harvey takes tha ball and makes a worldy of a pass pitch perfect for harry to Ghost the ball in the back of the net. 21 Mins 1-2 Royton

The fans are going wild with the expectaion of a cup win and Fish N Chips on the sea front. Will the day go as planned in the dads heads.Royton spread the ball about and Fleetwood show flashes of what they can do bringing James into the game several times to make timley saves. Henry drops deep to pick up the ball from midfield he plays Joe Hulme in who looked offside but has only timed his run to perfection and calmly chips the goal keeper to make it 1-3 Royton on 30 Mins They kick off again and they break from the start down our left. They cross the ball in and somehow miss kick the ball into our net not 2 mins after our goal Crap! 31 Mins 2-3

This is going to get hairy now the Gazzelle with number 8 on his back has the bit in betwwen his teeth and is causing us real problems.With them haveing some good chances before half time. Few there goes the whistle. The boys hold there hands on their hips taking in deep breaths while walking back to the coaches. I look to my wife who kindly says what you having that will be a Madri if you dont mind

The drink arrives and we start the second half Great battling from Ethan leads to a free kick for Royton.Royton make a Substitution with Harry taking a well deserved rest for the fresh legs that carry Pedro. We move Joe Hulme up front and Saif drops in midfield with Jack who is told immediatly by Humly to organise the midfield. They come at us again Ollie is the stand out today his partnership with George at the back is becoming quite formidable.Colby takes the ball and drives it into Jack who passes it out to Pedro we break down ther right and they commit a foul.We take the free kick but to no avail.

There number 7 seems to be loosing his temper in midfield Jack take a foul and seems to be hurt.Henry finds himself in some space and has a good chance to put the game past Fleetwood but the keeper makes a good save Henry walks back holding his Handstring this pitch is taking its toll Joe humle hobbles about in pain but still runs his heart out.Number 8 is there best player and he knows it. He is causing us some real problems but Ollie has his card at the minute.James makes another quality save keeping the ball out of the net. He clears with an almighty kick but we find the ball breaking through with 1 on 1 with James for an almost certain goal for James to save it agian.Ethan shoots again and makes the keeper save the shot we are nearing the end and we commit a foul close to our Box.Fleetwood step up this could be a dangerous time for us.the wall line up.He strikes the ball looping it to the top corner only for James to deal with it again James throwes the ball out and the Ref blows for full time The boys are buzzin as are the parents we shake hands but number 8 storms off back to his Herd of Gazzelles

Coaches comments couldnt be prouder of the boys after yesterdays performance Special mentions Ollie and Goerge at the back Harvey Albert and James in net Well done boys we march on to the next round ( MOT)
