Weekly Review

It was another great weekend of football. Despite our young non-comp teams enjoying some holiday time there was still plenty going on at Rangers. There were some mentionable highs this weekend and as we are not that far away from finals so I’m sure things will only get better!

Our 12C boys played our ultimate rivals Lugarno and not only did they come through victorious, they won 5-nil!!!!! A great day for an outstanding performance by Riley for scoring all 5 of the goals.

Congratulations to Josh Richardson for scoring 2 fabulous goals.

16Bs had a smashing victory against Sans Souci (2), winning 12-Nil!!!!! But it was even sweeter because they were the underdogs. Our young men took the field with only 8 players and finished the game with 10 while the opposition had 11. Well done on a fabulous display of the determination, grit, strength and mate-ship that helps drive our great club. Continue striving to achieve greatness and you’ll only get better and better.

Good luck for the coming weekend everyone. Let’s keep up the display of skill and talent as there is plenty of it at Forest Rangers – and we love seeing it.

U10A 2013 Premiers coached by Richo

We are very sorry to report that our beloved Matt “Richo” Richardson passed away yesterday after suffering a heart attack during the O35B game. Richo touched every aspect of our club from coaching, playing, graphics and signage, as well as a valued and active committee member.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kylie and the family as they come to terms with this tragic and devastating loss.

We will provide details of memorial services once we know more.

“A great clubman who simply loved football”: RIP Richo – you will be sadly missed. xx
