11th December 2005 - Cup Semi-Final first leg - Royals 1-0 Presteigne

Royals overcame the North Division champions Presteigne, in the first leg of the cup semi final this morning, by a single goal. Tom Lewis leapt above his marker to head home from a Joe Hearle corner, with just 5 minutes remaining.

Royals had the better of the first half and could have been 2 or 3 goals up at half time. However the post and Presteigne's keeper kept the score at 0-0. Presteigne came good in the second half and Royals found themselves on the back foot for much of the period. When Royals did attack the Presteigne goal, stout defending prevented them from scoring.

Royals must now wait until after Christmas to see if their one goal lead will be enough to take to the return leg at Presteigne, as the return leg has been postponed from next weekend.
