12th June 2007 - Carless-Turland leaves the Royals
Harvey Carless-Turland has left the Royals and has signed for Meole
Brace Juniors. Harvey played his last competitive game for the
Royals in the Matthew Evans cup final victory. The reason is cited
as being to gain experience playing in a different environment.
He will already be familiar to Meole Brace, as manager Dave Pryce
also manages the Stoke City Development Centre which some of the
Meole players also attend.
We wish Harvey the best of luck for the future.
