Under 18's Cup Winners

After having a fantastic league campaign which saw the team only drop two points the lads approached the cup final in confident spirits but knowing they would have to be at their best to be able to complete the double. We had one of our toughest games of the season against todays opponents Emerson Valley drawing 1-1 in an excellent game.

The game began with Rangers holding a slight advantage in possession and 20 mins into the game Matthias Schmidt opened the scoring before quickly adding a second to put us in a commanding position. Rangers began to dominate the game but Emerson Valley are a team who can expose complacency and a fine free kick after a foul by Jared Russell brought the score back to 2-1. This seemed to focus the team who quickly replied with two more fine strikes by Matthias Schmidt to make the half time score 4-1 to Roman Rangers

The half time team talk was very much about continuing were we had left off and not to lose concentration as the recent Ajax v Tottenham game had been a perfect example of how quickly games can change.

The team continued to dominate the game and possession creating numerous chances and adding further goals from Jared Russell and two from Brad Petherbridge including a sublime finish to a wonderful piece of skill from him and making the score 7-1 and effectively finishing the game as a contest. In fairness to Emerson Valley they never gave in and we had to be thankful to a couple of fine one on one saves from our goalkeeper Harry Aley before Emerson scored a second goal from the penalty spot.

The game finished on a very sad note after our keeper Harry Aley sustaining a very serious knee injury which required a hospital treatment and we wish him a speedy recovery.

The game ended with Roman Rangers winning convincingly 7-2 and pick up their 5th league cup trophy an amazing achievement by the team.
