Rangers’ girls cel­e­brate a dou­ble de­light

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

RUIS­LIP Rangers U11s scooped a dou­ble this week­end to make it four tro­phies for the girls af­ter a stun­ning sea­son.

Tri­umphs in the Herts Girls Foot­ball Part­ner­ship Shield and the Chor­ley Com­mon Youth Tour­na­ment made it a week­end to re­mem­ber for Rangers.

Satur­day saw them de­feat St Al­bans City 4-1 in the Shield Fi­nal, with goals from Krys­tal Fol­lett, Roopjot Bath and a dou­ble from Ciara Moore.

The vic­tory was made all the more im­pres­sive with their op­po­nents be­ing a divi­sion above.

The step up in class did lit­tle to in­tim­i­date the girls as they dom­i­nated from the first whis­tle with cen­tre mid­fielder Annabelle Hem­mings the stand­out player.

They backed up their Shield win on the Sun­day with suc­cess in the Chor­ley Com­mon Youth Tour­na­ment.

Fea­tur­ing sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als who missed out on Satur­day’s cup fi­nal, the girls topped their group be­fore meet­ing Chor­ley’s B team in the semis.

Goals from Moore and Bath en­sured a safe pas­sage into the fi­nal where they would take on Chor­ley’s A team.

Strikes from Tessa McCarthy and an­other from girl of the tour­na­ment Moore was enough for a 2-0 vic­tory and yet an­other tro­phy.

Mean­while, Ruis­lip Rangers will be host­ing a free girls foot­ball open day be­tween 11am and 12.30pm at Kings Col­lege Play­ing Fields on Satur­day June 4.

Girls aged be­tween seven and 16 are all wel­come re­gard­less of pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence. Rangers run girls teams from U9s to U16s with the op­por­tu­nity to progress into adult foot­ball.
