23rd August 2007 - Some positives despite loss against Red Rovers

Royals came away on the back end of a 6-1 defeat against Red Rovers U13s tonight at Russell's Meadow. In a hastily arranged 7-a-side game the team failed to ignite for the first period and found themselves pegged back in their own half for the best part.

The team rotated frequently and the two new signings Grinker and Locke slotted in well with the Royals style of play.

Things improved in the second half when some long range shots sailed over the bar and the Royals started passing the ball about with more conviction.

Lewis scored the only goal with a powerful low shot, beating the keeper from 15 yards.
