Rangers face tough Wittersham test

Rangers welcome Wittersham to the sports park this week in a division 2 encounter of high importance. Rangers have suffered three defeats on the bounce but feel they have been coming closer to securing the points as each game has passed. Wittersham were promoted from division 2 last season after finishing in the runners-up spot with their record reading P20 W14 D1 L5. They also boasted the top scorer from all divisions with their lead striker scoring 35 league goals. It was in fact this striker that put rangers out of the league cup last year when the two sides met at Wittersham Rec. With the scores tied 1-1 after 90 minutes and then 2-2 after 120 minutes, the Wittersham hotshot scored the winning penalty in the preceding penalty shoot out to send rangers crashing out at the quarter final stage.

Wittersham’s results so far this season has seen them play out a 3-3 draw at home to Crowhurst while 2 weeks ago they travelled to The JC Tackleway where they secured a 4-4 draw. Last week saw their game abandoned as the Windsor keeper Luke Costello suffered a horrific arm dislocation (we wich you a speedy recovery “Tello”).

As it stands, Wittersham are definitely the entertainers of division 2 both leaking and scoring plenty of goals.

It’s only a matter of time before rangers season gets up and running, could this be the week where rangers get what they deserve…..?

Let’s hops so.


3pm kick off.
