4th June 2006 - What now for the Royals?

It is the end of an era for Church Stretton Royals. After 3 years playing small sided soccer, they now progress to 11-a-side football for the season 2006-07. The team will have the additional task of learning the offside rule, which comes into play this coming season.

The forthcoming season is sure to be a hard one as the team will be playing against teams who are a year older than themselves, such is the structure of the South Shropshire Junior Football League.

Royals have the nucleus of a good 11-a-side squad and will be looking to strengthen it in the close season.
