13th November 2008 - Charity Cup game in doubt

Royals' game against Meole Brace Colts this weekend is unlikely to go ahead, due to players not being available. With both school and county level sporting commitments clashing with this game, Royals do not have enough players available to be able to field a team.

The league are currently investigating whether the school and county commitments take precedence over the cup competition, in which case the game would take place the following weekend.

If they do not take a precedence, then Royals would exit the competition by forfeiting the game.
