Kim’s brilliance fetches Royals a point (April 12)

Royal Wahingdoh FC made a dramatic comeback in the last minute of the injury time to go home with a point from the high intensity Shillong derby at the JN Stadium on Sunday. It was Kim Song Yong who struck gold for the Royals just seconds from the final whistle, much to the relief of the RWFC fans who braved heavy rain to make it to the ground. Kim headed home of a Naoba Singh cross to send the crowd into raptures. Courtesy Kim’s goal and a shot at the nets by Lajong’s Nim Dorjee Tamang in the 38th minute, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Post the victory the Royals have moved up to the second spot with 23 points in their kitty from 14 games while Lajong are at ninth spot with 12 points from equal number of games. Lajong were reduced to 10-men in the 69th minute when Seminlen Doungel received his second yellow card. Earlier, Lajong started brightly in the first half and drew first blood in the 38th minute. A Uilliams Souza Silva free kick from the right spotted Minchol Son inside the box. Minchol headed it straight up in the air as RWFC custodian Nikhil Bernard and defender Loveday Okechukwu tried to clear it but in vain. A lurking Tamang drove home a ‘bicycle kick’ to take the Reds ahead. Wahingdoh’s best chance to convert in the first half came in the 33rd minute when Lallawnzuala made a great run down the right with his cross executed to perfection. However, Seityasen Singh was found a little unbalanced and his running header did not quite come off. Crossing over, the Royals looked more like their real self, coming down hard on their opponents. RWFC coach Santosh Kashyap brought in Kim Yong two minutes into the second half as the hosts launched a planned assault. Meanwhile, the sending off of Doungel post the hour mark reduced Lajong to 10-men thus making their approach even more defensive. With less than 10 minutes to go, the relentless Royals sent several long range efforts flying over the nets in search of the equalizer with the likes of Seityasen Singh, Reagan Singh, Lalmangaihsanga and Kim in the thick of action. Despite all the efforts the hosts looked to be heading towards an undesired result as time was running out fast. However, Kim had other ideas. The RWFC No. 23 headed home a cross from Naoba to make it 1-1 with seconds to go for the final whistle much to the delight of the Wahingdoh fans. The Royals will next take on McDowells Mohun Bagan in another home tie on April 18.

Sporting hold dominating Royals (April 7)

SHILLONG: Royal Wahingdoh FC dominated the proceedings in the second half but had to be content with a goalless draw against Sporting Clube de Goa in a Hero I-League match at the Nehru Stadium, Fatorda on Tuesday. The Royals came close to scoring on several occasions after the break but unfortunately could only muster a point from the tie against bottom-ranked Sporting who are still winless after 13 games this season. Post the encounter the Royals stood firm at the third spot in the standings with 22 points while Sporting continue to linger at the 11th position. It was a thrilling encounter though with Sporting creating a few chances in the first half. However, the Royals came back strong in the second and created over a couple of genuine chances but the strikers failed to utilize on them. Loveday and Nikhil Bernard, who started in place of Prem Kumar Singh, were undoubtedly the two outstanding performers for the Royals. The duo made some brilliant saves at the back to deny the hosts. Meanwhile, Bekay Bawar, Jackichand Singh and Seityasen Singh came close to scoring for the Shillong side but could not finish to perfection. The Goans were reduced to 10-men after Jovel Martins picked two yellow cards (83’ and 89’) in a span of six minutes. Earlier, Santosh Kashyap decided to start with goalkeeper Nikhil Bernard while Lalmangaihsanga came back to the starting XI in place of Govin Singh. Sporting’s attack was frustrated early on by a brilliant as Loveday Okechukwu who denied the likes of Wolfe, Miguel Garcia and Mahmoud Amenah in the first six minutes of play. Nevertheless, it was an intense first half with Sporting creating several chances but Loveday was the saviour for Wahingdoh, clearing the ball from goal mouth on at least two occasions ensuring that the Royals do not concede any in the first half. A Godwin Franco screamer from a distance that went wide was the best chance that Wahingdoh had to convert in the first half. Crossing over, the Royals looked like the side which is rightfully placed in the top half of the table. Nikhil continued his good show and pulled off an excellent save in the 50th minute to deny Sandesh Jhingan's header off a Cajetan Fernandes corner. Kashyap's boys then put pressure on the home team and two minutes post the hour mark, RWFC substitute Seityasen Singh had a shot on target only to be denied by rival goalie R Kumar after a good build up by Jacki and Densill Theobald. Minutes later S Jhingan produced a last ditch tackle on Seityasen who was played through inside the Sporting box by Bekay to deny the Royals. Later in the 72nd minute, Seityasen's cross was almost converted of by Jackichand who was in an awkward position but Jhingan got back on the line and cleared the ball before it could cross over. Wahingdoh almost snatched a victory deep into injury time but Bekay Bawar’s shot off Seityasen's cross was blocked by the rival custodian. RWFC will now take on Shillong Lajong FC in an I-League derby on Sunday.

Royals, Bengaluru split points in ‘I-League game of the season’ (April 3)

Royal Wahingdoh FC and Bengaluru FC played out a six-goal thriller at the Kantheerava stadium in Bangalore on Friday. The Hero I-League game ended in a dramatic 3-3 draw as both sides fought hard in what was arguably the most fiercely contested battle in the tournament so far. The second and third placed teams brought out the best in them, as a goal-fest saw the visitors rue missed opportunities to secure all three points. For the Royals Kim Song Yong (15th, penalty), Godwin Franco (44th) and Reagan Singh (74th) scored while Robin Singh (39th), Shankar Sampangiraj (58th) and Joshua Walker (70th, penalty) found the nets for the hosts. Post the encounter, Bengaluru and RWFC continued at the second and third spots respectively with 21 points each in their kitty. The match witnessed plenty of drama and the end result was in suspense until the final whistle. Wahingdoh, who had lost 0-4 at home in the reverse fixture, were keen on avenging the defeat and looked the better side for much of the game as they teased and tormented a shaky home defence. That the Royals held 62 per cent of the possession in the first half and continued to dominate in the second speaks volumes of the effort put in place by Santosh Kashyap’s boys against the most organised side in the I-League. RWFC also had 33 shots aimed at the nets as against only 12 by Bengaluru. On the other hand, Bengaluru too kept their nerves and came back twice and even take a 3-2 lead only to see the visitors draw level. Though unable to dominate their opponents, the Blues still created several chances. Kim Song Yong opened the account for the Royals in the 15th minute, converting from the spot after a penalty was awarded following a Joshua Walker handball. Just as the half was dying out Bengaluru’s Robin Singh got his name onto the score sheet thanks to a couple of fortunate deflections. The Blues had a flurry of corners leading up to the goal, which Eugeneson Lyngdoh had a huge part to play with a perfect delivery. However, barely four minutes later, the hosts were stunned by a thumping effort from Godwin Franco which saw the visitors take the lead once again. Anxious to catch up, the Blues showed a lot of urgency in the second-half and eventually drew level when Shankar Sampangiraj, who had just then come off the bench, leapt high to head home Eugeneson Lyngdoh’s curling free-kick. More drama unfolded as Wahingdoh goalkeeper Prem Kumar conceded a penalty as he unintentionally brought down Sean Rooney who had broken through on a long ball. Walker converted to give the Blues a 3-2 advantage with still 20 minutes left in the game. Four minutes later, Reagan Singh made it 3-3 for the visitors with a blistering right-footer after a speedy attack to keep the interest alive. Both teams survived some anxious moments in the last quarter as also the three minutes of stoppage time as the long whistle came as a massive relief for the adversaries.

Royal juggernaut rolls on; hosts beat EB (March 31)

Royal Wahingdoh FC continued their winning run beating the famed East Bengal 1-0 in a rescheduled Round 9 Hero I-League match at the JN Stadium Shillong on Tuesday. By virtue of the win, the Royals shot up to the second spot in the standings at least temporarily. The Royals are currently at 20 points from 11 games while East Bengal continues to be in the sixth spot with 13 points. It was Godwin Franco who scored the decider for the hosts at the stroke of half hour. It was Franco’s first goal in RWFC colours. It could have been a 2-0 win for the hosts but a Jackichand Singh goal towards the fag end of the first half was disallowed for offside. However, post the first and only goal there was no looking back for the hosts who defended brilliantly throughout to thwart the East Bengal challenge. Coach Santosh Kashyap was delighted with the win over the Kolkatans and stated that his side was a serious contender for the title this season. Earlier, the hosts started spiritedly as the first opportunity landed for them in the fourth minute. A racing Densill Theobald was fouled just outside the box and Lalmangaihsanga set the set piece narrowly over the bar. Later in the 12th minute Kim Song Yong had a chance to put the Royals ahead after being fed beautifully by Densill with a lofted ball. However, an advancing Subhashish Roy Chowdhury forced Kim to chip it over just wide of the nets on the left. This was also the East Bengal custodian's last action in the match as he had to be stretchered off after a collision with Kim, with Abhijit Mondal taking his place. A corner on the half-hour mark finally gave the home side the lead. Assigned with the kick in Jackichand Singh opted to pick out a lurking Godwin Franco outside the box, who let loose a right-footer to beat Mondal all ends out and give the hosts the lead. Towards the end of the first half, Jackichand smashed one into the back of the net from inside the box sending the crowd into raptures. Unfortunately for the Royals, he was given offside by the linesman. Crossing over, star striker Ranti Martins did come out with a few brilliant moves upfront but the efforts were not enough to change the fate of the tie. Prem Kumar Singh was especially brilliant in front of the nets. The RWFC goalie made an excellent save to block an on-target Ranti Martins shot. The Royals will next take on Bengaluru FC in an away match on April 3.

Royal Wahingdoh tame Pune (March 29)

Goals in either half by Royal Wahingdoh FC star striker Jackichand Singh secured the much needed three points for the hosts in a Hero I-League match at the JN Stadium Shillong on Sunday. India international Jacki struck in the 39th and 67th minutes respectively to take his side back to the top three in the standings. After this game, RWFC are at 17 points from 10 games while Pune FC are at fourth with 16 points. The Royals started on a dominant note and could have gone ahead in the 2nd minute itself had not Lalmangaihsanga's free kick from outside the box hit the crossbar. The Royals continued to dominate and Kim Song Yong found the nets in the 19th minute. However, an off side call given by the referee meant that sides were still at 0-0. The Royals continued in their relentless way and 10 minutes later, a powerful Jackichand shot missed the top of the bar by a whisker as another chance went down. Jackichand then set up Kim Song Yong beautifully in the 38th minute. However, his casual effort from inside the area made it easy for rival goalie to hold on to the effort in front of the cross bar. The hosts' perseverance, however, finally paid off a minute later. This time Jacki was fed by Lalmangaihsanga and the little striker from Manipur made no mistake to take the hosts ahead. Lalmangaihsanga cut one back for Jacki from the left following which the India striker beat the defence with his first touch and fired a low shot past rival goalie Arup Debnath to send the crowd into raptures. The goal came at a crucial time for the hosts who went into the break with a 1-0 lead. Pune began to show more urgency at the start of the second half but Wahingdoh doubled their advantage in the 67th minute and once again, it was Jackichand who did the damage. A through ball saw him clean through with only the keeper to beat and he slotted away his finish with ease to make it 2-0 for the hosts. Wahingdoh nearly had a third two minutes later when Bekay Bewar got into the clear but could only fire a low shot just wide of the target. Jackichand simply refused to stay out of the game and was hat-trick hunting when he unleashed another powerful effort in the 76th minute that zoomed over the bar. Santosh Kashyap's men were able to dominate possession and see the game out without any hiccup, securing a comfortable 2-0 win. Speaking to pressmen after the game Kashyap lauded his boys for the effort. He termed the win as an “excellent” one which provided the side with several positives. Rival coach Karim Bencherifa conceded that his side lost to a better team on Sunday.

Dominant Royals held by Bharat FC (March 21)

Royal Wahingdoh FC put up a brilliant show at home but had to be content with a 1-1 draw against Bharat FC in a Hero I-League match at the JN Stadium in Shillong on Saturday. Livewire Jackichand Singh, who was brilliant throughout on Saturday, put the hosts ahead in the 32nd minute. However, his strike was cancelled out by Palestinian Omar Jarun as late as the 85th minute against the run of play to deny full three points to the Royals. The draw leaves Royal Wahingdoh in 4th place with 14 points while Bharat FC are at the 8th place with 9 points. It was a hard earned draw by Bharat FC who were put in the back foot for most part of the match by the hosts. Apart from Jacki, Bekay Bawar put up a notable performance creating several chances and coming close to converting on at least two occasions. Skipper Densill Theobald and Naoba Singh too were in the thick of action with the duo making a few skilful and dangerous moves on each side of the break. The Royals were on top during the initial exchanges and round about the 15th minute a charging Bawar was brought down inside the box. Appeals for a penalty, however, fell on deaf years. Bawar continued with his aggressive intent and raced into the opposition box again in the 31st minute. His effort though, went just over the bar. The Royals were in firm control of the game by the half-hour mark and seized the momentum to go ahead a minute later. Jackichand Singh, who featured in the Indian national team that beat Nepal 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier match recently, latched onto a cross from the left on the edge of the box and dispatched his shot into the back of the net with help from the crossbar to give his side the lead. Wahingdoh were relentless thereafter as Bekay moved into shooting position again in the 38th minute but this time too his effort went over the bar. Crossing over Jacki continued with his good run and almost doubled the lead in the 66th minute when his powerful shot from the edge of the box on the left hit the crossbar. The Royals made a series of raids in the opposition half in the middle of the second half but their failure to add to the tally kept the visitors in the hunt. Despite the good show, Wahingdoh had to settle for a point only after Bharat FC’s latest signing Omar Jarun equalised for his side in the 85th minute. Unfortunately, both sides were reduced to 10-men after a tussle on the pitch as RWFC’s Loveday and Bharat FC’s Robert Hassel were given marching orders by the referee during stoppage time. The game ended 1-1. Both the coaches sounded happy with the result.

Relentless Royals go down fighting to Pune (February 28)

A relentless Royal Wahingdoh FC dominated the entire second half, hitting the woodwork once and coming close to scoring on numerous occasions but failed to get the equalizer in the Hero I-League match against Pune FC at the Balewadi Stadium in Pune on Saturday played amid incessant rain. The hosts, who went into the lead in the 27th minute, held on to it although shakily, to see themselves reach the top of the table ahead of Mohun Bagan with 15 points in their kitty. The Royals, meanwhile, have dropped to fourth in the standings after their valiant effort failed to yield results on a day when lady luck refused to look at them. Earlier, continuous heavy rain made things difficult for the visitors as they lost control more than once on a turf rendered unfamiliar due to the wetness of the surface. The first chance for the Royals came in the 17th minute when Jackichand blazed down the left flank and cut in a cross for Godwin Franco whose shot rebounded of a Pune defender. However, it was hosts Pune FC who went took the lead in the 27th minute when a cross from the left flank found Thongkosiem Haokip coming to the edge of the box and dispatching a shot which dropped into the bottom of the net. Minutes later a possible penalty was denied to the Royals when star striker Kim Song Yong was apparently brought down inside the box. The Royals came all guns blazing crossing over with Jacki, Seityasen Singh, Kim and company looking to make amends for the first half. Five minutes into the second half, Jackichand made a clever run before unleashing a shot at goal which the rival goalie did well to negotiate. A couple of minutes later, the Royals almost converted on two occasions. In the first instance both Seitya and Kim failed to get to a well placed Jackichand ball following which the Royals No. 10 himself saw a shot from a good position blocked by a rival defender. In the 55th minute a powerful Jacki shot kissed the net to go out. Later in the 64th minute, Jacki once again weaved his way through before passing to Kim, whose shot went straight to Amrinder. Jacki had a flurry of chances but unfortunately could not get the equalizer for his side. Nevertheless, it was all Royal Wahingdoh in the rain in the second half as Pune were left doing the defending job throughout. By the 76th minute, Bekay Bawar had replaced Kim and Marlangki came in for Jacki. With less than 10 minutes to go for the regulation time, Reagan Singh’s shot on the goal was somehow tipped away by Amrinder. The Royals’ best chance to snatch a point from Pune went bagging when a powerful Densill Theobald shot from long range hit the top of the bar in the 90th minute. Densill came up with the brilliant attempt from 40 yards away. However, the skipper failed to save the day for his side.

Royals go down fighting to Mumbai (February 20)

Royal Wahingdoh FC went down fighting to Mumbai FC in a Round 7 Hero I-League match at the Cooperage Stadium in Mumbai on Friday. The Royals drew first blood in the 14th minute but a second half comeback by Mumbai who scored in the 51st and 73rd minutes respectively saw the hosts runaway with the match. However, despite the defeat, RWFC held on to their top spot in the standings with 13 points from seven games. Earlier, the table toppers dominated the proceedings from the word go and went into the lead as early as the 14th minute through a Bekay Bawar goal. After some good work down the right between Kim Song Yong and Seityasen, the ball fell to Bekay just outside the area. His shot took a deflection off a defender and trickled into the corner of the nets. RWFC could have taken the lead in the 12th minute itself but Seityasen Singh’s cut in from the right went narrowly wide. Nevertheless, Santosh Kashyap’s boys left no room for Mumbai comeback in the first 45 minutes and went into the break with a 1-0 advantage. The trio of Seityasen Singh, Bawar and Kim Song Yong also created a lot of trouble for the Mumbai defence. They were well fed by their midfield, particularly from Godwin Franco and Densil Theobald. The half-time break, however, helped Mumbai regroup and they equalised a few minutes after restart. The Royals were unable to clear the ball from a Mumbai attack in the 51st minute and Justin Stephen used the situation to his advantage to give Mumbai the lead. In the 73rd minute, Mumbai struck again, this time through Md Rafi. An Allan Dias long throw from the left was not properly dealt with by the Wahingdoh back liners and Rafi poked the ball home from close range to give the home team the lead. RWFC will next take on Pune FC in another away game on February 28.

Royal Wahingdoh beat Sporting to go top again (February 15)

Royal Wahingdoh FC came up with a brilliant performance in the Hero I-League home match against Sporting Clube de Goa to ensure that they reclaim the top spot in the standings. The Royals dominated the proceedings from the middle of first half braving a cold, rainy evening at the JN Stadium to emerge victorious against their Goan rivals who are yet to register a win this season. Comeback boy Seityasen Singh and star striker Kim Song Yong struck on either half of the match to take the Royals to the top of the standings again. With this victory RWFC have 13 points in their kitty from six matches. Their closest rival is Pune FC which is second in the table with 11 points in its kitty. While Seityasen Singh provided the first goal of the match in the 40th minute, Kim Song Yong delivered the second in the 57th minute to seal the fate of the tie. Seityasen, who had missed the tie against Dempo, burst into the box to finish off a brilliant Lallawnzuala cross from the left flank, putting his side ahead just before the 45-minute mark. Crossing over, the hosts added another goal to their tally when Kim Song Yong headed one into the nets from close range to make it 2-0. Sporting, who have only scored once in this season so far, never really looked threatening except for round about the 35th minute when a Boima Karpeh shot was brilliantly saved by RWFC custodian Prem Kumar. The Royals, meanwhile, dominated almost throughout the second half and romped home to a well deserved win. The day also belonged to the almost 5000-strong crowd who braved rain and cold to support the hosts. Heavy rain prior to the start of play had made conditions challenging for both teams. Earlier, RWFC coach Santosh Kashyap made four changes to his side with Lalmangaihsanga, Govin Singh, Marlangki Suting and Jackichand Singh making way for Naoba Singh, Lallawmazuala, Godwin Franco and Seityasen Singh. Meanwhile, the injured Brandon Fernandes was replaced by Mauvin Borges for the away side. Lallawmazuala impressed throughout with his support role from the left flank and made numerous inroads besides feeding Seitya with a good ball which was eventually converted. Kashyap, who was elated with his team’s “big win”, yet again refused to set a target for his side who have created a ripple with their performance in the I-League so far. He, however, praised the boys for their good show today.

Royals rally to secure point against Dempo (February 7)

Hosts Royal Wahingdoh FC rallied to secure a point against Dempo SC in a Round 5 Hero I-League match at the JN Stadium in Shillong on Saturday. Down by a goal, Wahingdoh struck back in the 71st minute to restore parity and retain the second position in the standings. Both the goals were scored in the second half by two substitutes after the first half went goalless. An alert Nadong Bhutia was the star of the day for the Royals while Germanpreet Singh gave the visitors the lead after he came in for Tolgey Ozbey. Germanpreet slammed a ball from distance to net his side’s only goal in the 53rd minute. The Punjab player’s effort stunned the crowd into silence. But the Goan side's lead lasted for less than 20 minutes as the hosts came right back into the match when Bhutia drove home the equaliser. Bhutia was on hand to guide in the rebound after Kim’s effort came to his feet off the post. He had come in as a replacement for the lively Jackichand Singh who made numerous inroads in the first half. The goal sent the 8000-strong crowd into frenzy. Earlier, the RWFC lineup saw three changes in the form of goalkeeper Prem Singh, new signing Govin Singh and star striker Jackichand Singh who replaced Nikhil Bernard, and the injured duo of Lallawmazuala and Seityasen Singh respectively. Jacki was especially lively in the first half breezing past the left flank on numerous occasions but failed to finish. Densill Theobald, Bekay Bawar and Loveday also pitched in at the centre ensuring that the hosts enjoyed bigger possession. The first real chance of the game came to the hosts in the 26th minute when a strike from skipper Densill almost made it to the nets. The ball found Densill after some good interplay between Jackichand, Kim and Bekay Bewar. Jacki and Bekay again found themselves in the thick of action in the 34th minute when the former raced to the left flank and crossed one towards the Liberian who headed the ball just wide of the nets. Less than 10 minutes into the second half, Dempo tasted first blood through a Germanpreet Singh goal. But the lead was soon cancelled out by the spirited hosts who struck back in the 71st minute. Thereafter, the Royals created several chances towards the end of second half and persistently pressed for a winner. Royal Wahingdoh coach Santosh Kashyap said that he was satisfied with the performance of the boys who had once again showed the determination to fight back. Dempo coach Arthur Papas was also happy with the show of his injury-plagued side. After this game Royal Wahingdoh stand second in the table with 10 points from five matches.

      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.
