2000/2001 Season:
It took three attempts to play our fixture at Dean Court last season. When the game eventually did go ahead it gave our promotion hopes a massive boost with a 2-1 victory for the Royals. At home the result made no difference to our third place finish - and we drew 3-3 with goals from Butler, Caskey and Nicky Forster.
