RICHARD STYLES REACTION - A game full of twists and turns today saw us eventually draw 4-4 with Bearsted. Going in at half time ahead, we should of seen it out and finished the job and won the game, but got ourselves out of jail a little with the equaliser and could of nicked it at the end. We learn, we improve, we work hard and move on. The fact that we are disappointed to draw the game shows how far we have come as a squad in such a short space of time. Has to be said the atmosphere at The Culverden today was awesome, thank you to all the incredible fans and fantastic youth team players that came to the game. Up The Royals.
