Royston Town boss Steve Castle said celebrations after James Potton’s last-gasp wonder-strike are impossible to replicate, as the Crows snatched a 1-0 win over Banbury United on Saturday, Royston Crow report.

With four minutes left in Oxfordshire, Banbury were awarded a penalty. However, like Rohdell Gordon for the Crows in the first-half, Giorgio Rasula missed – rattling the post. In the 92nd minute, substitute Potton allowed Adam Murray’s knock-down to bounce onto to his right, and cracked it from 25 yards.

He watched it rise, before dropping perfectly into the top-right corner. As he sprinted to celebrate with the Crows dugout, they climbed to second in the league and earned back-to-back wins.

Speaking to CrowSport, Castle laughed as he recounted the scenes: “My reaction was like everyone else’s, just running towards him.

“They’re the type of things in football that you can’t copy elsewhere. When you experience those things you realise what a buzz it is.

“It’s great for team spirit. All our results have been good for team spirit at the moment.”
