RANGERS u16s started the game against early leaders in the Lichfield League, Holy Name Manor very untidily.
Although Rangers had no pressure from Holy Name, they found themselves down 1-0 at the break.
With a change of formation and personnel at half time, Rangers came out the blocks fast and in the second half looked much more like themselves, with a great performance in midfield from Matt Baker.
The constant pressure was soon rewarded with a goal. A good through ball found Harley Roberts who ran clear of the defence and rifled the ball home to level the scores.
Rangers continued to press the game but could not convert. Harley Roberts went close again with a overhead kick, and Patrick Corley was unlucky not to get on the score sheet.
With five minutes remaining Rangers got their winner with a poacher’s goal from left back Aaron Breeze.
A good result, with a home fixture to come next week against, Paget Rangers at Marston Road, 2pm kick off.
RANGERS U13s lined up against a powerful looking Sutton Coldfield Town side in the Lichfield and District Junior League - and emerged 10-1 winners.
Playing at a high tempo they wasted no time opening up Sutton down both flanks as Harrison Bickford caught the eye with his neat passing in midfield.
Josh Stack opened the scoring and then Bickford got in on the act before Ryan Douglas rounded the keeper to put Boro firmly in control. Tim Khayat added a brace and Declan Arber finished off an excellent Douglas delivery before Stack added his second to leave the score 7-0 at the break.
Understandably Rangers failed to hit the heights of the first half, but Stack completed his hat- trick and an own goal was quickly followed with a neat finish from George Foster to complete the scoring for Boro.
A special mention for Sam Jarvis, Lewis Woolley and Sam Jessup who excelled with some quality balls out of defence. Sutton got a late consolation with a thumping header but this could not detract from another excellent all round team performance.
LAST weekend saw the Premier League U12s Champions from Lichfield and Stafford clash in what was billed the Super Cup Final by the children.
