29th October 2006 - Royals errors punished by Ludlow North

Royals crashed 2-5 to Ludlow North at the SBS Stadium today. The team looked stale and were punished for their errors by the pacey Ludlow forwards. All 5 Ludlow goals were scored on the break and although Royals had 5 players coming back after absence managers Smith and Miles will be hoping that the team beds in quickly, with some important games coming up.

Royals were possibly unlucky not to come away with at least a point as they missed 3 or 4 good chances.

Goals were from Hearle, Carless-Turland and Bourne.

A match report will appear here.

22nd October 2006 - Royals crash 1-7 in Meole brace friendly

Royals today suffered their biggest defeat since September 2004, and only their second loss since May 2005. With just 11 players available for selection due to holidays, even the goalkeepers had to play one half each as an outfield player.

Meole started strongly and Royals had nothing to match their pace and skill in the first half, as they struggled to break out of their own half. However after the half time break Royals did start playing some better football and played with more passion. Bourne scored the consolation goal after a delightful headed flick on by Lewis put him through.

A match report is here.

15th October 2006 - Royals held by Presteigne

Royals managed to salvage a point from their match against Presteigne North today, when all looked lost at half time. Presteigne were well worthy of their 2-0 lead at half time after having punished Royals for their mistakes and scrappy play. Defensively Royals looked all over the place and failed to cope with the pace of Presteigne's forwards. In the second half though with the introduction of Bourne and Allan, Royals began to settle down and string some passes together and commanded the game for long periods.

A goal from Bourne and an own goal gave Royals a share of the spoils.

A match report will appear here.
