Seven Year Award Winners!
Thanks so much to everyone who came along on this hot and sunny day to attend our Junior Presentation. Congrats to all teams and especially to our ten and seven year award winners – top effort! If you still need to collect your trophy and / or team photo please contact your Manager in the first instance. Check out the fotos from the day here (apologies if they’re a bit blurry – I couldn’t see a thing!).
A huge thanks to the many helpers (committee and others) who, without them, this day would not have gone so well.
See you all in 2016 – Go Rangers!
(via Dale Baker) “Big shout out to U13G for having to face off against Bexley North last night to complete our drowned out Grand Final from Sunday. Already 2 down and with only 14 mins to pull a rabbit out of the hat, our girls showed enthusiasm, teamwork and great skills and though it didn’t go our way, we could not be any prouder. They are an amazing team who are getting stronger every year. Girls you made us so proud with your never give up attitude and thanks also to Vince for sharing his knowledge and skills through coaching the girls weekly. Bring on next year girls!!!”
Well done girls and look forward to seeing you all progress in the girls comp next year.
Big congratulations to the six Rangers boys who represented St George in the U13 Regional Crossover League during the 2015 season, which they won. They were also crowned Regional Conference Premiers after winning their final played at Valentine Park last weekend.
Well done boys!
What a weekend of excitement, and disappointments. First, the bad news with the following teams beaten in their Grand Final:
- AAA1 lost 2-0 to All Saints Oatley West after losing two key players to injury in the first fifteen minutes
- O35C tragically lost on penalties to Arncliffe Aurora, with a game played in trying conditions due to the weather and the state of the pitch
AAA Reserves – 2015 Premiers!
Now for the good news. We have a Premiership winning team – the AAA Reserves, who after extra time were still drawn 0-0 with All Saints Oatley West. In a tense penalty shoot-out, with three great goals, one good save and one unfortunate miss, it came down to our own NickyG who slammed in the decider to seal the win and the trophy for 2015.
A top effort to all our Grand Finalists – you did the club proud (P.S. we’re still to hear about the U13 girls as the game was stopped due to weather).
So, that does it for Season 2015 – let’s go Rangers in 2016!
Wow …. Who saw this coming, a 6 nil thrashing of our neighbours and arch rivals Lugarno in a preliminary final .This was a derby that no one who was at the game will ever forget. We arrived at the ground expecting a tough physical battle between two closely matched teams. We hadn’t beaten Lugarno this season and from the moment the opening whistle sounded Lugarno had entered the Ranger Zone, and after only 3 minutes Johnny calmly chipped the keeper from 30 metres out after seeing him off his line .The Lugarno shot stopper didn’t know at the time that he’d spend the next 87 minutes picking the ball out of his own net. We continued to dominate the 1st half with both Wayne and Mark narrowly missing chances, and after 30 minutes we doubled our lead when Maverick made a great break down the left wing and unselfishly crossed the ball to Michael for an easy tap in. Our only real disappointment of the 1st half was the unfortunate cautioning of Michael which will see him miss a grand final he deserves to play in. Lugarno came out hard for the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half, but a great individual run from Michael and a calm finish gave us a 3 nil lead and took the wind out of Lugarno’s sails. 5 minutes later we had our 4th and Michael had a hatrick driving a free kick into the top corner, and he celebrated with 3 fingers in the air to the anger of their rather chatty goal keeper. It wasn’t too long before Michael put another free kick in and this time the celebration resembled the Ronaldo chest pump. But it wasn’t over yet. Gabe delivered a cross to Michael and he buried his 5th, it was the perfect way to finish off a wonderful season for him. Eventually the keeper made a save and I had to laugh when our supporters sitting on the west side of the stadium gave him the Bronx Cheer. It was a great team effort, not only did we score at will, but our defence never gave them a chance.
Now to next week, another grand final for the majority of this team. Arncliffe are a whole new challenge and we need to get over the excitement of this win and prepare for the biggest game of the season. Thanks to all the Rangers supporters that came down and cheered us to victory, I’m sure we entertained you. We play at 9-30 am this Sunday, we’d love to see as many people down there in green as possible to help us get over the line.
Please support all our four Grand Finals teams this weekend – the draw is here.
Here’s the draw for Friday and Sunday’s games folks. See you all there wearing the green. Go Rangers!!
