12th October 2008 - Royals through on penalties

Royals were tested to the extreme this afternoon at Shrewsbury Sports Village. However after an equally matched game, it will be Royals who are in the draw for the semi final of the league cup.

Royals were not at their best but could have scored 4 or 5, but for a string of outstanding saves by the Colts' keeper. In the end it was Shrewsbury who took the lead early in the second half. Royals then had to dig deep and Moffat scored the equaliser with a superbly headed goal from a Hearle corner, with just minutes remaining.

Extra time came and went without either side being able to take the lead. Penalties came and Royals finally won 3-2, with Green, Miles and Lewis each scoring theirs.

8th October 2008 - Shrewsbury Junior Colts match preview

Royals meet Shrewsbury Junior Colts this weekend in the first round of the League Cup. The Colts are currently joint third in the league table with the Royals with both teams having lost one game so far.

The two teams have not met for 5 years, since they were at U8s level, so not much is known about Royals' opponents.

The game takes place on Sunday 12th October 2008 at Shrewsbury Sports Village, Sundorne Road, SY1 4RQ. Kick off time is 12:30pm. Royals will be wearing blue.

6th October 2008 - Weekend results round up

Meresiders 0-11 Shrewsbury Juniors
Shrewsbury Junior Colts 1-2 Baschurch
Market Drayton 2-5 Meole Brace Colts

5th October 2008 - Rain puts paid to Meole Brace clash

Persistent heavy rain overnight caused the Meole Brace game to be called off this morning at the 11th hour. Enough rain had fallen to make puddles form on the pitch and therefore unplayable. The A49 was also flooded north of Church Stretton making it difficult to pass.

The game will now be played later in the season.

1st October 2008 - Meole Brace match preview

Royals take on Meole Brace Juniors this weekend, in a match that is sure to be full of rivalry and local interest. The two teams have not met since Meole's 2-0 victory two years ago. Both sides have vastly changed squads since then so past meetings are not relevant.

Ex Royals Harvey Carless-Turland and Dominic Robinson are both likely to be starting for Meole, while Royals should have a full squad to select from.

The game takes place at Meole Brace School adjacent to Roman Road sports centre with a 10:00am kick off. Royals will be playing in red.
