Vale to a wonderful man (and Rangers supporter)


Go Green!

After several long battles with cancer, last Tuesday we lost Alberto Crisante, a well-known Rangers’ identity as well as much-loved husband of Italia, father to Maurice, Daila and Pola, nonno to Troy, Dan, Allessio and Chiara, and father-in-law to DC.

For many, many years Albert spent every Friday carefully marking out the lines at Gannons Park, then every Saturday afternoon was spent making sure the linesman didn’t ruin his freshly marked lines, all while cheering on a son, grandsons, son-in-law and friends playing in the green and white.

Albert loved talking to Rangers players and supporters, young and old, at the football while drinking a beer or three, usually supplied by Berg! Tributes to Albert from Rangers have been flowing, including these:

“[Albert was] the ultimate gentleman who had time for everyone. I enjoyed seeing him following his sons, grandsons and other family members play the great game.”

“A wonderful man, a rare gem, loved chatting to him at the football.”

” [I] have fond memories of him from our teenage years.”

“A terrific family man!”

Rest in peace Albert – you will be greatly missed. xx

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!

Check out the fotos from the day here (apologies if they’re a bit blurry – I couldn’t see a thing!).

U13 Girls Grand Final Report

(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.

Grand Final Wrap-up

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!
