Opening day is DERBY day….!
Rangers face neighbours Windsor FC this week in their opening game of the 2013/14 league campaign. Windsor finished last season as Eastbourne FA Junior Cup winners after defeating rangers quarter final opponents, Little Chelsea, 2-1 in the final which saw Jack “Pez” Perry receive his marching orders thus ensuring he is suspended for this game. Windsor also suffered a cruel blow a few weeks ago when midfielder Craig Luttridge broke his arm against Sedlescombe.
Windsor finished 7th in division 2 last season with a record that saw them win 9, draw 1 and lose 10 in what was a very tough league. With new manager Trevor Blanks at the helm and several new signings, Windsor will no doubt be looking to improve on their league record from last year, and like rangers, will be hoping to be in the mix at the end of the season.
Rangers won division 4 last year to make it a hatrick of league titles and put together a good case to be promoted two divisions which the East Sussex Football League duly approved.
So two teams with something to prove – should be a cracker!
See you at the sports park 3pm kick off.
