Droylsden 2-1 Witton Albion

A final run out for the Bloods saw Dave Pace’s team come from behind to score two late goals to clinch victory against Evo-Stik Premier opposition.

New signing Chris Thompson made his debut in goal for the Bloods and made several crucial saves early on.

The visitors took the lead in the second half from the penalty spot through James Foley but Droylsden were level just one minute later with Sefton Gonzales scoring from close range at the far post and took the lead three minutes later through Sam Madeley.
