GALLERY | Essendon Royals light up Cross Keys

The Essendon Royals played their first ever senior home game at Cross Keys Reserve on Friday night as they welcomed Men’s State League 1 North-West leaders Preston Lions on a fabulous night for football.

The Royals could not pick up the points, but a strong second-half performance offered the home supporters plenty of hope and excitement for the games to come at Cross Keys, on a night in which the Royals used every inch of its fabulous new facilities.

It was fantastic to see so many supporters, sponsors, players and juniors in the crowd supporting the Royals at their fantastic new home.

A special thank you to the junior mascots who escorted the seniors onto the pitch!

We’ve curated some of the best pics from the game and the night.
