29th October 2006 - Royals errors punished by
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.

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.

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