27th February 2006 - Royals 2-0 Knighton

Royals overcame Knighton in the Quarter Finals of the Division 1 cup on Sunday, with a 2-0 win. However Royals made extremely hard work of it and they found it hard to combat the defensive nature of Knighton's play. A first half goal by Riley and an own goal made sure of the victory.

A full report will appear here.

21st February 2006 - Knighton Match Preview

Royals entertain Knighton this weekend in the Quarter Finals of the cup. Knighton are the only team in Division 1 that Royals have not played yet, and so therefore remain an unknown quantity. They visit Church Stretton on the back of a 4-1 over Craven Arms last weekend, so a competitive game could be on the cards.

The game takes place on Sunday with a 10:30 kick off.

19th February 2006 - Onny Plus 0-4 Royals

Royals gained a much needed win to put them back on course in this Division 1 clash. Goals from Lewis, Hearle, Groom and Riley saw off the opposition and put the Royals back on track, after their draw against Presteigne.

Some super first half football saw 3 goals scored in the first 18 minutes, but in the second half Onny came more into the game and Royals only managed a single goal.

15th February 2006 - Onny Plus Match Preview

Royals take on Onny Plus this weekend at Burway Cricket Ground. They have already met Onny twice this season, producing two memorable games, both in the cup. In the first leg Royals won 1-0, whilst in the second leg Royals were again the victors by 4 goals to 2.

Royals need a win to get back on track in their quest to win the title.

15th February 2006 - Royals to meet Knighton in the cup

Royals have been presented with a home draw against Knighton in the quarter finals of the Division 1 cup. The tie is a single leg affair.

Knighton are currently the only team from Division 1 that Royals have not yet played in any competition.

The game is to be played at the weekend of 25th/26th February 2006.

14th February 2006 - Last weekends games hit by inclement weather

Only one game in Division 1 was played last weekend due to sickness and the freezing weather conditions. Onny Plus managed to put 6 goals past Onny Tigers without reply.

12th February 2006 - Craven Arms game postponed

Today's game against Craven Arms was been postponed due to sickness in their squad. Only 5 players from the squad were fit, causing the postponement.

This now means that Royals will have to play 3 matches mid-week, when the clocks go forward as follows:

Presteigne - Away - Cup 1 Semi Final 2nd Leg
Knighton - Away - League
Craven Arms - Home - League

9th February 2006 - Craven Arms Match Review

Royals will be looking to make amends for a sloppy first half performance last week against Presteigne, when they entertain Craven Arms this Sunday. Royals who beat the Arms by 7-1 in their encounter before Christmas will be looking for 3 points to keep them in the title race.

Craven Arms will be looking to get something out of the game, in a bid to hoist themselves into the top half of the Division 1 table. They come with an impressive 4-1 win over Onny Plus behind them.

The game takes place at Church Stretton School on Sunday with a 9:45am kick off.

5th February 2006 - Presteigne 3-3 Royals

Royals were knocked off the top of the table this morning after being held to a draw by Presteigne. Indeed Royals were made to battle for their point and the home team looked vastly superior for most of the game.

They went 2 goals down after 18 minutes but managed to pull one back before half time, through Lewis, to at least give themselves a fighting chance.

Presteigne then made it 3-1, and the match looked beyond saving for the Royals. However determined battling, saw Lewis and Groom score 2 goals in the last 7 minutes to earn them the point.

Ludlow North's victory over Knighton means that they now top the table.

A full match report will appear here.

2nd February 2006 - Presteigne Match Preview

Royals travel to Presteigne this weekend to play the first of two league fixtures against the title hopefuls. Royals should be at full strength, the only injury doubt being Groom, who has an ankle injury. All the players seem to have recovered from the sickness bug that is rife in South Shropshire, so the game looks set to go ahead, weather permitting.

Presteigne will be determined to make up for their surprise defeat last weekend against Onny Plus, and Royals will need to be at their best to cope with the likely pressure put on them.

The game takes place at Presteigne on Sunday with a 11:00am kick off.
