A top three finish for Royal Wahingdoh (May 30)

SHILLONG: I-League debutants Royal Wahingdoh FC finished third in the standings after East Bengal and Pune FC lost their respective games on Saturday. Wahingdoh ended the season with 30 points from 20 games with 8 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses. By virtue of their performance, RWFC, who have had a dream season, bagged the honours of being the first club from the Northeast to finish third at the top flight of Indian football—the I-League. In the course of the season Wahingdoh also gave birth to new stars of Indian football, several of whom are now vying for places in the Indian side with as many as six shortlisted for the upcoming India camp being conducted to select players for World Cup qualifier matches. On the occasion, the Club thanked the Meghalaya Football Association, the Shillong Sports Association, the Sports Department, Police and other government agencies for their cooperation throughout. The club also thanked the team’s fans or the 12th man, the volunteers and the “entire Wahingdoh community and well wishers without whose support, the journey would not have been possible.” RWFC also congratulated Shillong Lajong FC for avoiding relegation.

Royals go down to East Bengal (May 24)

SHILLONG: It was a day of missed opportunities for Royal Wahingdoh FC who went 0-2 to Kingfisher East Bengal in their last Hero I-League match of the season at the Barasat stadium in Kolkata on Sunday. The loss means the Royals will have to wait for the outcome of the final matches of East Bengal and Pune FC respectively to find out where they finish in the standings in their debut season. A brace by Dudu was enough for the hosts to ensure a crucial victory for themselves against the dangerous Royal Wahingdoh. Dudu scored in either half of the tie (45+2, 66’) played in scorching heat in Kolkata. The Royals would rue their missed chances including a second-half penalty which could not be converted by skipper Densill Theobald. Kim Song Yong too had at least three good chances to convert but failed to do so as the Royals ended their campaign with a loss. It was an “all to play for” tie for the visitors who needed a win on Sunday to ensure they finish third in the standings in what has been a magnificent debut season for them. However, failure to convert of the openings and perhaps the scorching heat and humidity did in the Royals who have displayed an attacking brand of football throughout the tournament. Earlier, the Royals started on a bright note taking the attack to their Kolkata rivals from the very beginning. In fact East Bengal were put on the defensive by the RWFC boys with most of the action being concentrated in the rival half for at least the first 18 minutes. The first real chance of the game came two minutes after the half hour mark when Kim Song beat the offside trap brilliantly to receive a long ball and went almost one on one with rival custodian Luis Barreto. However, Arnab Mondal recovered well from behind and put Kim under extreme pressure. The North Korean’s shot was tame and went straight to the keeper. Kim was in the thick of action again in the 36th minute when a sublime free kick delivered inside the box was headed straight to the goalie by the North Korean. Five minutes later Kim raced forward to send in a scorching left footer from the edge of the box but a brilliant save by Barreto denied Royals the breakthrough. The East Bengal fans had their hearts in their mouths barely two minutes later when skipper Densill Theobald and Godwin Franco teamed up for the visitors. Densill took a short free kick which he tapped to Godwin waiting eagerly just outside the box. Franco sent in a screamer of a shot directed towards the top half of the bar but an acrobatic Barreto made a diving save to yet again to deny the Royals. Despite all the effort it was East Bengal who drew first blood in the 45+2 min. Mama sent in a ball to Ranti on the right, who took a bit of time to control it. However, he chipped the ball to the far post for Dudu who was making a run behind the Royal defense. Dudu made no mistake to slot the ball in from point blank range to take his team into the lead during the first half added time. Crossing over, Kim failed to hit the target yet again in the 64th minute when he met a Jackichand Singh cross to the far post but his header went down and wide on the left. Dudu seized on the North Korean's miss just two minutes later as he took advantage of indecisive defending by Loveday who failed to close him down. While his first shot from the right was parried by Prem Kumar, it was the former Wisla Krakow man who beat Loveday onto the rebound, sending it into the empty net in the 66th minute. To add to the misery of the Royals, their skipper Densill made a mess of a penalty in the 82nd minute when Gurwinder Singh ended up blocking Bekay Bewar in the box with the referee pointing to the spot. Densill could not convert from the spot sending the ball looping over the bar. Later a tussle in the stoppage time led to both Densill and rival player Shylo being red carded. The game ended 2-0 in favour of East Bengal. The Royals, however, can take heart from the fact that they had a brilliant debut season.

Unlucky Royals go down to Bagan (May 20)

An unlucky Royal Wahingdoh went down to McDowell Mohun Bagan despite putting up good show n a Hero I-League match played at the Barasat Stadium in Kolkata on Wednesday evening. The Mariners got the better of the visitors scoring in either half of a game in which the Royals came close to scoring at least thrice but in vain. While Pritam Kotal drew first blood for the Kolkatans in the 36th minute, Sony Norde made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute. Wahingdoh’s best chance to score came in the first half came in the 33rd minute when an advancing Kim Song Yong failed to convert from close range. Later Loveday was unfortunate to hit the crossbar in the second half as the visitors had to accept the 2-0 defeat. Following the win Bagan have reclaimed the top spot ahead of Bengaluru with 35 points from 18 games while the Royals are at 30 points from 19 games and still placed third in the standings. But the loss meant that the Royals title ambitions can’t be fulfilled this season. Earlier, both sides started on an attacking note at the crowded Barasat Stadium with Bagan looking to make a few inroads early on. Though the hosts had the greater share of possession, Kashyap’s men were very much in the game, but were guilty of missing a few key passes in the first half an hour. Just before the half-hour mark, Seityasen Singh made inroads into the Bagan territory, but Shilton was at hand to palm away the ball. In the 33th minute, Lallawmzuala sent in a sublime cross for Kim behind the Bagan defense. The North Korean forward brilliantly shielded the ball from two Bagan defenders, but couldn’t hit the target from very close range. Three minutes later, almost against the run of play, Kotal struck from nowhere. Kotal sent in a stunner of a shot from the right wing which was out of reach of an out of position Nikhil Bernard. The teams went into half time with the scores at 1-0 in favour of Bagan. Crossing over the Royals came in all charged up and Godwin Franco tried to repeat what he had done against East Bengal and Bengaluru FC earlier this season. Franco slammed one from 25 yards, but Shilton dived to his left to keep it out. Two minutes after the hour mark Katsumi Yusa was brought down outside the box and a free kick was awarded. Sony Norde stepped in to double the advantage after his free kick took a deflection off the wall to end up in goal, leaving Barnard flat-footed. Later Bekay Bewar had a golden opportunity to get a goal back for the away side after exchanging an one two with Jackichand before surging into the box. With Shilton coming off his line, he could only send his shot wide. Royals bad run continued despite putting in all the effort. Following a Godwin Franco free-kick, Loveday was desperately unlucky as his header looped up and came off the crossbar. There was no change in the score thereafter and the game ended 2-0 in favour of the hosts.

Royals take on Bagan in battle to regain second spot (May 19)

SHILLONG: It will be a battle to regain the second spot when Royal Wahingdoh FC take on hosts McDowell Mohun Bagan in a Hero I-League match at the at Barasat Stadium, Kolkata on Wednesday evening. The Royals are coming into the tie after an over two-week break and would look for a repeat performance against the Kolkatans in their second last match of the season. The tie is crucial in the way that a win will catapult the visitors to the second spot and keep them in hunt for the coveted title they so much aspire for in the debut season. The last time the two teams met, Royals had created an upset by ending Bagan’s unbeaten run this season with a famous 3-2 victory in Shillong. Bagan have never looked like the same side since that game registering only one win in their last five matches. What is more alarming for the hosts is their recent back-to-back losses against Bharat FC and Sporting Clube de Goa who have had an indifferent run this season. Wahingdoh on the other hand are on a mighty high after a 4-2 drubbing of Salgaocar in their last home game and the well deserved break in the run up to the ties in Kolkata is likely to add to their advantage in Kolkata. Nothing can be more apt then RWFC ending its fairytale journey with two wins in Kolkata and coach Kashyap and his boys will leave no stone unturned to achieve this feat. On the eve of the tie the former Bagan coach said that his boys are confident ahead of the tie and RWFC fans can look forward to a good contest. The likes of Seityasen Singh and Jackichand Singh will be at the centre of attraction while the Densill Theobald, Bekay Bawar, Loveday and Kim Song Yong will also be eager to show their class. Bagan, meanwhile, would look to get their act together on Wednesday to end their lowly run of late. Coach Sanjoy Sen would certainly look to set the strings right in the backline while the famed Bagan front line would look to get back in the limelight in a tie which will surely decide the Mariners’ claim to the title. All in all an exciting contest is on the cards between the two sides placed at the top half of the table.

Royal Wahingdoh organises grassroots programme (May 16)

With a vision to nurture football talent in Shillong and encourage a greater number of children to take up the game, debutant I-League club from Shillong, Royal Wahingdoh FC conducted a grassroots programme in the city on May 16. The event also marked the celebration AFC Grassroots Day. Over 100 children between the ageof 8-12 years from various schools of Shillong participated in the grassroots programme under the watchful eyes of Head of Youth Development, RWFC, Bobby Nongbet and his team of assistants. RWFC head coach SantoshKashyap was also present on the occasion. The aim of the programme was to provide a proper platform to the kids to display their skills besides nurturing them over a period of time through sustained training and guidance. The event kicked off at 10 am and witnessed children participate in drills and games that were both engaging and fun-filled. The kids were divided into groups of 10 for the various drills and it was a carnival like atmosphere with even the parents watching their little ones in action from a distance. RWFC has been conducting training sessions for “footballers of tomorrow” on weekends during schooldays and on a daily basis during the holiday season. The training sessions have been well received by children and parents alike. The sessions are conducted to identify talents who can be absorbed in the clubs U-14 and other set ups. The club through its continued effort aims to impart quality training to the kids and prepare them for a career in football in the years to come and in the process facilitate the growth of football across the State. On the occasion, RWFC Youth Development head Nongbet said that the healthy trend of the rapid rise in professionalism in Indian football today made it extremely important to spot the talents at an early age so that they can be honed and made better prepared to jump into the big stage in the near future.

Royals trounce Salgaocar for last-game hurrah at home (May 3)

Royal Wahingdoh FC did everything right on Sunday to put up a befitting show against Salgaocar FC in their last Hero I-League home game of the season at the JN Stadium in Shillong. Riding on a Seityasen Singh hat-trick, the Royals beat Salgaocar 4-2 to register a famous victory in front of a 16000-strong crowd who had come all the way to cheer their side which has had a fairytale run in its debut season. The inspirational performance by the hosts put them back on track for the hunt for the title besides threatening to pile pressure on the likes of Bagan and Bengaluru. Sunday’s match had in it all a Royal Wahingdoh fan could ask for. From the mastery of the home strikers to the steadfastness of their defenders and the custodian, the Royals were determined to sign off with a famous win for themselves and for the thousands of faithful who backed them throughout the season. It was only apt that the side which started its I-League campaign in the same ground with a win was to emerge triumphant in its last home match of the season on the same pitch. The mesmerizing Seitya struck on the 10th, 68th and 82nd minutes to complete his treble while skipper Densill Theobald added a fourth to the tally in the 59th minute. For the visitors Douhou Pierre and Darryl Duffy struck in the 56th and 90+2 minutes respectively. Following the win, the Royals have moved back to the 2nd spot ahead of Bengaluru and will end their campaign with two games against the Kolkatans—Mohun Bagan and East Bengal-- later in the month. Coming back to the match, the home team had a great start with Jackichand Singh and Seitya combining well from the very beginning. In fact, the duo with their style of play added a slice of history to the game. The familiar crowd was reminded of the exploits of Jacki and Seitya who have been delivering time and again for their side for years now. And rightly, Wahingdoh broke the deadlock in the 10th minute. Densill Theobald intercepted the ball in the midfield and released Jackichand in attack. Jacki was quick to spot Seityasen on the right. With only the rival custodian to beat, the RWFC No. 11 placed the ball with consummate ease on the right of Subrata Paul. Three minutes later Jacki and Seitya collaborated again but could not get the desired result this time round. The way Wahingdoh went about the game thereafter made it hard to believe that the hosts were up against the same Salgaocar side which had tamed Shillong Lajong at the venue a week ago. At the stroke of half hour another chance went begging for the Royals when Seitya was unable to get to a potential header placed perfectly for him at goal mouth by Naoba Singh who made it to the starting XI on Sunday. Almost 10 minutes later Godwin Franco sent one flying over the cross bar to maintain the pressure on the opponents. However, the sides went into the break with the score at 1-0 in favour of Wahingdoh. Crossing over Salgaocar got the equalizer in the 56th minute through a sublime free-kick by Pierre who found the back of the net from a difficult angle. Pierre struck from the deep left flank after a free kick was awarded following a foul on him. However, barely had the celebrations died that Wahingdoh struck again, this time through Densill. When nobody expected him to take a shot after he was fed by Lalchawnkima 10-to-12 yards outside the box, Theobald sent a scorching right-footer that blazed past Subrata Paul who could do little to keep the ball from entering the back of the net. Seitya made it 3-1 for the hosts in the 68th minute after being fed by Jacki yet again. The RWFC No. 11 then sealed the deal for his side by striking for the third time in the 82nd minute. Fed from the left, Seitya overtook his marker and negotiated the rival custodian to send a half-volley into the net. Though Darryl Duffy struck one back in the 90+2 minute, it was a little too late in the day to make an impact on the outcome of the tie. The final score, however, was 4-2 in favour of RWFC.

RWFC play Salgaocar in last home game (May 2)

Royal Wahingdoh FC will take on Salgaocar FC in their last Hero I-League home match of the season at the JN Stadium in Shillong at 4.30 PM on Sunday. With only three matches to go this season, the Royals are keen to sign off on a winning note in their last home game. While the Royals are sitting pretty at the third spot, Salgaocar are placed sixth in the standings and have had an indifferent run this season. The visitors, however, will take heart from their recent 3-1 win over ShillongLajong FC in Shillong. Though the Royals’ title ambitions received a bit of a setback after sharing point with Mumbai and going down to Dempo in the last two outings, no one can take away the good work the team did in its debut season and despite the recent statistics, SantoshKashyap’s boys will start as firm favourites when they take on the Goan rivals on Sunday. On the eve of the crucial tie, Kashyap asserted that his boys are well prepared for their last home game. “We played well in the last game (against Mumbai) but could not get the desired the result… It’s a new game tomorrow, we are well prepared,” Kashyap said adding that all the remaining three matches are “very important” for his side. Kashyap also heaped praise on all the Royal Wahingdoh fans who stood firm behind the team in large numbers and urged them to back the side again tomorrow. Though Kashyap was not too happy with his strikers in the last game, he said the boys are putting in the efforts. “It’s a long season and we can’t win everything,” he said. However, in what could be a bit of concern for the Royals they will miss out on the services of BekayBawar while Lalmangaihsanga has also been ruled out. Kim Song Yong too is a doubtful starter but is likely to be of the 18-member list. Meanwhile, Salgaocar on the other hand come to game on the back of a dominating performance against another Shillong side and would fancy their chances on Sunday. “We badly needed one win losing four matches in a row. We still have a long way to go and are looking forward to a good game against Wahingdoh tomorrow,” coach Derrick Pereira said. Pereira also praised Wahingdoh under SantoshKashyap. Visiting skipper RocusLamare also hoped for a positive result for his side tomorrow. Darryl Duffy will be a doubtful starter for Salgaocar. It may be mentioned that the Royals had defeated Salgaocar in the reverse fixture.

Dominant RWFC held by Mumbai (April 26)

A dominant Royal Wahingdoh FC had to be content with a draw against Mumbai FC in a Hero I-League match played at the JN Stadium, Shillong on Sunday. Though Mumbai went into the lead in the 23rd minute through a Josimar Da Silva goal, it was all Royal Wahingdoh thereafter with Kim Song Yong finding the back of the net in the 59th minute to restore parity for the hosts. For the entire second half, Mumbai were pushed back on the defensive by the nimble footed Wahingdoh front-liners. However, unfortunately for the hosts, a flurry of their shots went over the bar missing the target narrowly on at least a couple of occasions. A couple of good saves by rival custodian Nidhin Lal also did not help the Royals’ cause. By dint of the draw, the Royals have, however, moved up to the third spot with 27 points in their kitty. Mumbai on the other hand are now placed-eighth with 16 points and will be pretty happy to go from Shillong with a draw. Earlier, the Royals started brightly looking to make inroads from the word go. A ninth minute poor corner taken by Mumbai gave Jackichand Singh the ball. The India international made a brisk run to the opposition half and spotted Kim on the left. Kim crossed the ball but was off balance as he took the shot and a chance went begging for the hosts. Relentless in the approach, the hosts created another chance in the 19th minute but fell short of converting on this occasion too. Passes between Densill, Kim and Jacki saw the India International shoot the ball just over the bar. However, it was Mumbai who drew first blood almost against the run of play in the 23rd minute. Josimar converted after a throw in was crossed neatly into the box. Meanwhile, with a plan in his mind, coach Santosh Kashyap brought in Lallawnzuala in place of Govin Singh as early as the 33rd minute. As the Royals began their hunt for the equalizer, a Lalchawnkima shot from distance missed the net by a whisker in the 36th minute. Barely five minutes later a Bekay Bawar screamer sniffed the cross bar on its way out. The teams went into the break with the scores at 1-0 in favour of Mumbai. Crossing over, the Royals continued in their aggressive fashion with the likes of Jacki, Bekay, Densill Theobald, Naoba Singh and Kim in the thick of action. Bekay and Jacki made a good run forward into the Mumbai half in the 50th minute but the RWFC No. 10 was brought down just outside the Mumbai box on the left. Four minutes later it was a foul against Bekay at the same spot but this time too, the Royals were unable to put the free kick to good use. The hosts were, however, rewarded for their resilience in the 59th minute when the tried and tested Kim Song Yong ‘struck gold’. Just a minute after a Jacki shot was blocked by Nidhin Lal, a great cross found Kim inside the box and his sublime header guided the ball into the back of the net. Kashyap, meanwhile, made the second substitution bringing in Milancy Khongstia for Godwin Franco. Minutes later, RWFC custodian Nikhil Bernard made a brilliant save of a corner kick to deny Mumbai who looked to counter attack without much success every now and then. By the 71st minute Kahsyap had made all three substitutions and the last to come in was Seityasen Singh who replaced Bekay. Thereafter the Royals pushed hard for the equalizer but without much success as the hosts were also guilty of squandering a couple of chances. The match finally ended in a 1-1 draw much to the dismay of the 13000 strong crowd who were backing their side for a win. Nevertheless, it was a brilliant display by the Royals who dominated possession throughout.

Host Royals all set for Mumbai encounter (April 25)

Royal Wahingdoh FC will look to settle for nothing less than a win when they take on Mumbai FC in a Hero I-League tie at the JN Stadium in Shillong at 4.30 PM on Sunday. Nurturing title ambitions, the Royals will have to aim for three points every match here on and the players would have to get the best out of them for the remaining ties of the season. RWFC moved down to the fourth spot behind leaders Mohun Bagan, Bengaluru FC and East Bengal after going down to Dempo in their last encounter. The Royals have amassed 26 points from 16 games. Mumbai, meanwhile are placed seventh in the standings with 15 points and are without the services of coach Khalid Jamil who was handed a four-match ban. On the eve of the tie, RWFC coach Santosh Kashyap reiterated that the Royals are still in the hunt for the title and would look to use the home advantage in the best possible manner against Mumbai. “Every match is big for us…tomorrow we will be up against a good, ‘rough and tough side’ . Will try to make use of the home advantage,” Kashyap said. Reacting to a query, the RWFC coach said his team was not under any kind of pressure in the wake of their title ambitions. “We have built expectations and even exceeded them. There is no pressure on our boys. We are still taking one game at a time and see where we reach,” Kashyap said. Meanwhile, Mumbai FC manager Henry Picardo said that it will be a challenging outing for his side considering the fatigue caused by the tight schedule of the games. Picardo added that his side would have to work on its weaknesses from the last three games and also counter the home crowd. Reacting to a query Picardo asserted that the absence of coach Khalid Jamil would not affect the team which has done well in the last two outings. “The players are well accustomed to the situation and his (Jamil’s) absence would not affect the outcome of the tie,” Picardo said. RWFC will miss out on the services of Lalmangaihsanga, while Kim Song Yong and Lallawnzuala are doubtful starters.

Royals go down fighting to Dempo (April 22)

SHILLONG: Royal Wahingdoh FC fought hard to come back twice but could not get the better of Dempo which sealed three points in a Hero I-League game at Nehru Stadium, Fatorda on Wednesday courtesy a Tolgay Ozbey brace which included a stoppage time goal. The closely contested tie ended 3-2 in favour of the hosts who denied the Royals a flight back to the top spot. At 26 points from 16 games now, the Royals would have to aim to win all of their remaining matches to realize their title ambitions. Dempo, meanwhile, would be breathing a sigh of relief at moving up to the sixth spot after this win with 16 points in their kitty. While Dempo struck in the 26th, 82nd and 90+ minutes respectively, the Royals found the back of the nets in the 45+ and 85th minutes. Earlier, both sides started brightly creating a few chances but it was the Golden Eagles who drew first blood in the 26th minute through a Sushil Singh goal. Sushil came up with a diving header to open the account from a measured cross by Haroon Amiri. Wahingdoh were quick to respond and almost equalized barely nine minutes later when a Seityasen Singh header sniffed the cross bar to go over. Seitya was beautifully fed by a Bekay Bawar cross from the far left. The Royals continued to maintain pressure and Densill Theobald almost stunned the home supporters with a scorcher of a shot from long range in the 41st minute. It required an acrobatic effort from the Dempo goalkeeper to deny the Wahingdoh skipper. However, the visitors were finally rewarded for their efforts at the stroke of half time. A Naoba Singh delivery found its way to Theobald, who from five yards out guided it onto the post. However, fortunately for the Royals, the ball bounced back into play and was right in front of the waiting Loveday, who had the easiest of tap-ins to convert right under the crossbar. Crossing over, the arrival of Tolgay Ozbey gave Dempo renewed hope. The Australian striker found the back of the net with a powerful right footer after some good work by Francis on the right in the 83rd minute. However, barely had the hosts celebrated their achievement that the Royals struck back through a brilliant Theobald effort. A superb ball by Bewar saw Theobald finally recieve the ball in the box and the skipper made no mistake to convert from a difficult angle. However, it was Ozbey and Dempo who were fated to have the last laugh. A great cross from the right found Ozbey inside the box and a staring Bowari Khongstia could not do enough to prevent the Dempo striker from finding the back of the nets. The Royals will next play Mumbai FC in a home match on Sunday.

      About Us

      Founded in 1946 as the Wahingdoh Sports Club, the club won numerous titles and thereafter, saw its share of fame and honor. However, with changing times and professionalisation, the amateur club began to face some amount of difficulty competing with younger clubs and it was then, that the decline began.

      In 2007, Wahingdoh Sports Club was almost relegated to the 2nd Division League and as a result of inconsistent performance, the Wahingdoh community felt the need for a younger and more innovative approach .

      In 2008, the club turned professional when it merged with Royal Football Club before being renamed Royal Wahingdoh FC under the able leadership of the club's owner Dominic Sutnga Tariang. With the club witnessing several dramatic changes, a new chapter was in the making and in the very same year, the club bounced back to claim Third spot in the 2nd Div Regional League, a sign that brought hope for a brighter future.

      Royal Wahingdoh FC fans still remember the team's stupendous performance in the First Division 2009 season where they established a record by winning all their games besides scoring 52 goals en route to lifting the title and along with it, an entry into the top tier of Meghalaya football, "The Shillong Premiere League." Ever since, Royal Wahingdoh FC has earned the reputation of being a highly consistent team with its crop of young, exciting and aggressively tactical players.

      Royal Wahingdoh FC is presently Shillong's Champion Club. In the 2010 season, they lifted the Shillong Premier League - in their DEBUT season. A new record and one that would take a while to be beaten.
