29th April 2007 - No training
before Presteigne game
There will be no training for the Royals this week, which will mean
that they will go into their final league match straight from their
victory over Ludlow North.
26th April 2007 - Last league game
to be played at Presteigne FC
Royals will finish their 2006-07 league campaign by
playing at Presteigne FC's home ground, Llanandras Park. The
ground has recently been improved with the addition of floodlights
last year, although it remains to be seen if they will be necessary
for the Royals' game. The game has been switched due to the goal
posts being removed from John Beddoes school.
be a good test of stamina, and a chance to prepare for the following
week's final, which will also be played on a large pitch.
The match takes place on Thursday 3rd May with a 7pm kick off -
24th April 2007 - Royals claim
league runners up spot
Royals earned the point they needed tonight to ensure that they have
achieved runners up spot in division 1 of the SSJFL. They defeated
Ludlow North 4-0, in a game in which some of their best football of
the season was played. Goals from Bourne (2), Lewis and a remarkable
goal from goalkeeper Holtz, where he scored from his own penalty
area, made sure of the result.
A full match report can be found
23rd April 2007 - Ludlow North
Ludlow North on Tuesday evening for the second time in 8 days. They
go into the game knowing that a draw will be enough for the runners
up spot in the league. Royals have never played Ludlow at home and
their opponents will be vying for revenge for the 7-4 defeat that
Royals handed out at the SBS stadium when they last met.
The game takes place at Russell's Meadow with a
6:30pm kick off.
23rd April 2007 - One more point
will do it for the Royals
Royals need just one more point from their remaining two games to
ensure that they finish as runners up in the league. Their nearest
rivals Ludlow North are 3 points behind and can only get level on
points if they beat the Royals on Tuesday, and Royals lose to
Presteigne North in their final league game. Although Royals have a
far superior goal difference, this factor is not considered and a
play off would be needed.
22nd April 2007 - Royals reach
final of Matthew Evans Cup
Royals narrowly defeated Presteigne North today 2-1 in the semi
final of the Matthew Evans Cup, after going a goal down in the first
half. Presteigne deservedly went in a goal to the good at half time,
as they were the hungrier of the two teams. A better second half
performance by the Royals saw them score two goals in the last 10
minutes to get through. Bourne struck home a penalty and then Green
hit the winner with 4 minutes to go.

19th April 2007 - 3 games in 8
days for the Royals

up on fixtures that were previously postponed. On Sunday they play
Presteigne North, then on Tuesday evening they host Ludlow North at
home in a re-arranged League game. Then next Sunday Presteigne North
are again the opponents in another re-arranged league match.
19th April 2007 - Presteigne lose
pitch until next season
Both Presteigne teams are now without a pitch for the remainder of
the season, as the council have taken down the goals in preparation
for the cricket season. They are playing all remaining fixtures at
Presteigne Town's ground during the week.
This could affect Royals as they have an away league
game still to play against Presteigne North which is due to take
place on Sunday 29th April. Royals have offered to switch the
fixture to Russell's Meadow.

Matthew Evans Cup. The game has been re-scheduled after it was
postponed back in December. If the Royals beat their opponents then

15th April 2007 - Ludlow North 4-7
Royals all but made
certain of finishing in second place in the league today, after
beating Ludlow North 7-4, in a high scoring match. Royals started
strongly and dominated the first half, going in at half time with a
6-0 lead. Then in the second half changes were made and Royals only
managed to add one more goal to their total, whilst conceding 4.
Bourne (5) and Lewis (2) were on target for the

Training resumes tonight from 6pm - 7pm at Russell's
12th April 2007 - Ludlow North
back in action this weekend against Ludlow North, a team that they
have only met once previously. On that occasion Royals lost 5-2,
although the scoreline probably flattered Ludlow. Royals have to
play Ludlow twice before the end of the season and the victors of
these matches could well claim the runners up spot in the league.
The match takes place at the SBS Stadium, Ludlow with
a 10:00am kick off.
9th April 2007 - Three match ban
Carless-Turland has received a three match ban after his swearing at
the referee in the game against Onny Eagles. In addition to this the
SSJFL have said that he must also write a letter of apology to the
8th April 2007 - No game for
Royals over Easter weekend

the Easter period.
1st April 2007 - Royals 0-1 Onny
Royals unbeaten run
of 10 games came to an end today when they narrowly lost to league
leaders and favourites Onny Eagles. In their previous encounter
Royals had earned a creditable draw with their opponents, but this
time it was not to be.
game where the wind played a big part Royals were equal to Onny in
the first half. However in the second half a strong wind had built
up and Onny were able to virtually camp in the Royals half. Royals
defended resolutely, with Keugler outstanding in the Royals goal,
but with just 5 minutes remaining Onny struck home from close range.
Royals best chance came when Lewis just failed to
latch on to a cross with just the keeper to beat.
The game was unfortunately soured with
Carless-Turland being sent off for swearing at the referee.
1st April 2007 - Royals to sign
The Royals are said to be interested in a Spanish player who is
moving to the UK in September. Striker Ollie Lancaster is visiting
the UK in April to vie up a possible move when his family moves
here. The Royals are thought to be keen to sign the player, after he
was recommended by the manager at his current club, Real Avila CF.
It is thought that the player is keen to play in the area when his
family re-locates here this summer.
