NWR Royals crowned Challenge Cup Winners

NWR Royals 2 - 0 Railway Club

Birkdale Trophies Senior Challenge Cup Final

The Royals came out on top in the Senior Challenge Cup Final on Sunday, to cap what has been a great season for the team, as they have also finished second in their first season in the Premier League.

The Royals took the reins from the start, and it was surprising to see them going in at half time still at 0 - 0. However, it was mainly due to the heroics of the Railway 'keeper, who stopped certain goals from the unlucky Mo Mboob.

The introduction of Ally Myles at half time added an extra spark, and when he laid the ball to Alex Gilmaney, Alex rocketed the ball home from 20 yards. Ally Myles got the goal he deserved with 15 minutes to go, which allowed the Royals to glide home.

The inspirational Steve Hoare took the man of the match trophy for his contribution at the back, in his what was his last match for the club.

It was an enthralling performance by the Royals, and a justly deserved win. Congratulations to Stuart Bushall and the boys on topping a great season.



Royals roll into Final

NWR Royals 5 - 3 The Hare

Challenge Cup Semi Final

The Royals went into the final of the Challenge Cup following a thrilling encounter against The Hare.

The Hare took the lead, before Greg Hunt chipped the 'keeper, then Mickey Carroll put us into the lead before half time. The Hare then pulled one back. then took the lead from the penalty spot on 90 minutes. Amazingly, straight from kick off, the Royals pressed forward into the Hare penalty area where Mickey Carroll was bundled off the ball for a penalty to the Royals in time added on. Alex Connolly kept his head and put us into extra time.

Mo Mboob then scored a goal which flew into the net screaming, before Alex Connolly scored his second penalty to put the game beyond doubt.

Well done to the Royals who are still sitting joint top of the Premier League.
