ANOTHER good win last Saturday kept the Royals rolling on their recent unbeaten run, as they beat bottom of the table Wivenhoe 4-2.

But disaster struck in midweek as their resurgence at the top of the Rridgeons League ended at second-placed CRC, who now look to be in a two-way title fight with Needham Market.

A 4-1 defeat and injury to Nathan Stone, which is likely to keep him out of tomorrow's clash at Wisbech, was not a true reflection from a good performance on the night.

But The Royals were made to pay for two individual errors which effectively killed the game and left them 3-0 down at the interval.
