Report

Start off with bloody fight in the air from Nippon corner kick, it made our Paddy boy got 6 stitches on and likewise to Nippon striker in the end. Nevertheless two players completed 90 mins of fight after treating blooding. Rangers lined up strong squad again for this important game, Fraser was happy being no.10 intended to show off his hat-trick to parents in town however Sharpy made it instead. Opening goal in early first came in from a bit of mess-up by Nippon defense, Sharples picked up in the space and brought it over into 18y box, kicked into the net with surprisingly calm manner. He pushed another 2 goals in second half to lead the top scorer race and showing off the real striker to Fraser boy. Second goal was converted by big Jonathan from the corner by Jordy, but not header instead right foot! Another one was from another set piece, Neil man claimed it should be filmed and showed off a tricky free kick from the outside of 18y, Paddy chose a pass to Neil running off after kick fake, Neil aimed the other side of net by one touch and it was successful! Nippon fought strongly especially gaining back as 2-2 once however unfortunate incident as striker and midfielder went off due to old injury made a headache for Nippon manager. Good luck to Nippon for the rest of the season. Rangers has 4 more league games and plate competition for the rest of the season. Keep this momentum lad. (HN)

Tough game

Started with few chances for Nippon but a lot more for Rangers among which 2 goals were made in the 1st half. Although 2 of our key players were needed to be substituted becuase of the injury during the 1st half, Nippon shortened the distance by the penalty which resulted in 1-2 for Rangers when 1st half competeled. In second half, even though we scored eaqualiser right after the half time, Rangers made 3 more goals taking advantage of Nippon moving little on the pitch because of many reasons. Comgrats and all the best for Rangers and hope to see you again next season!!
