29th March 2007 - Onny Eagles match preview

This weekend sees a top of the table between the Royals and Onny Eagles. If Royals lose, then the odds fall back in favour with Onny to win the title. Both teams are understood to be without key players and certainly the Royals will be weakened without Agnew and Bourne.

Royals will play in red.

The match kicks off at 10:30am at Russell's Meadow.

25th March 2007 - Royals book place into Final

Two goals in the first 5 minutes gave Royals just the start they had hoped for in their semi final against Red Rovers today. In an entertaining game, on a pitch that had recovered from the recent rainfall, both sides showed that they can play good football, when the conditions are right.

Rovers did pull the score back to 3-2 by half time with goals from Van Doesberg and Parton, but in the second half, Royals changed formation proved successful and they netted twice more to make the final score 5-2.

Bourne came away scoring 4 (including one penalty) with Lewis scoring the other.

For the fourth time this season Royals take on Red Rovers, this time the most important meeting, for a place in the Final of the Ian Hughes Cup at the SMS Stadium, Ludlow. Royals have not had a game for 2 weeks and will need to put on a better performance than their poor display against Presteigne South 2 weeks ago.

Red Rovers come on the back of two successive wins and their confidence will be high, so weather permitting the game could be a real cup tie affair.

The game takes place at Russell's Meadow at 10:00am.

15th March 2007 - No match for the Royals this weekend

Royals enjoy another break this weekend as they were unable to re-arrange a postponed fixture. They were supposed to play Presteigne North - and this Sunday had been agreed back in early February, however it now transpires that Presteigne double booked the fixture with Red Rovers.

This means that the next fixture will be against Red Rovers on 25th March in the semi final of the Ian Hughes cup.

11th March 2007 - Royals salvage point after first half disaster

Royals lost their 100% home record this season today after just managing to salvage a point today in their game against Presteigne South. Presteigne had deservedly earned a 3-0 lead by half time in a first half which saw the Royals sleepy and lacklustre. Two goalkeeping errors gave their opponents an early two goal lead, whilst poor defending gave them a third.

The tide turned in the second half when the Royals played with a lot more passion and had the wind behind them. Two goals from Bourne and a third from Green saw them earn the point.

A full match report will appear here.

7th March 2007 - Presteigne South match preview
