Tuesday 3rd August
Abbey Hulton Utd FC v Rocester
NWCFL Division One (South)
Although buoyed by their win on the opening day of the new season, the Romans travelled to Abbey Hulton United expecting a tough match…
However, despite the hosts forcing a couple of good saves from Charlie during the first 20 minutes or so, it was the Romans who drew first blood when Alexander Cimino tapped in from 5 yards in the 28th minute.
The Romans continued to apply pressure with Matt Nutt going close in the 40th minute.
Half-time score 0-1.
Within a minute of the kick off for the second half, a strike from the hosts saw Charlie Wood beaten, however, the shot was cleared off the line by Alex Scott!
The hosts finally equalised in the 57th minute from a well taken Lee Cropper shot fired hard and low into the bottom right of the net, having left Charlie with no chance of saving.
Abbey Hulton's winning goal came in the 76th minute when the ball was played into the box and deflected off Josh Oultram and into the net!
Final score 2-1.
