Report …….

The first game of the season saw a match-up between the two teams relegated
from Division 3 last year and so on paper this should be the Reserves toughest
test. The miserable weather had already sent 6 reserve team players running to
the airport in search of the sun leaving them with the bare 11 and no recognised
goalkeeper, with joint reserve team manager Trevor Clissold donning the gloves.
Matters got worse when Garry Tanner limped off during the warm-up after
aggravating an achilles injury. So it was with some relief that a call was received
15 minutes before kick-off to say the first team’s game had been rained off and
Andy Lockyer, Matt Shapcott and Sam Jones were winging their way in.

After a nervy start it was the Reserves that took the lead when a poor back pass
caused panic in the Woolwich defence and the ball played to Steve Smith at the
back post to open the scoring on his debut. This sparked Woolwich in to life and
the Reserves spent most of the opening period camped in their own half as the
Woolwich midfield dominated. This pressure finally told as the ball broke on the
edge of the area and a drive in to the bottom corner levelled the scores. Minutes
later the home side took the lead as a weak shot was fumbled and the Woolwich
striker was gifted with the easiest of tap-ins. Only poor finishing from the home
side prevented the score getting worse but against the run of play Rangers felt
they should have had an equaliser as Dan Richardson cut in from the left and his
shot was tipped on to the under-side of the bar and reclaimed by the keeper but,
against the majority view of those in attendance the referee judged the ball not
to have crossed the line.

At half time the reserves were called upon to show more fight and they
responded perfectly, upping the tempo in the second half and a beautifully
flighted free-kick found Locky lose his marker and fire the Reserves level. As
Rangers pushed on it was actually Woolwich that re-took the lead as a scramble
in the area saw a shot through a mass of bodies and the unsighted Trevor could
only save with his legs and the Woolwich player was quickest to react and tuck
home the rebound. Trevor managed to redeem himself somewhat, firstly turning
a shot from inside the area around the post and then leaping to his right to get
his fingertips to a curling effort from the edge of the area that everyone thought
was destined for the top corner. A free kick from the edge of the area was tipped
smartly over the bar which saw a succession of three corners before a Woolwich
player was tripped on the side of the box and the referee had no hesitation in
pointing to the spot. Trevor guessed right and got a hand to the ball but this
wasn’t enough to stop it creeping in as the hosts extended their lead to 4-2 with
10 minutes remaining. The Reserves never gave up though and with five minutes
to go produced the best move of the game, the ball quickly thrown out to David
Gomm who surged up the right wing and his perfect cross was knocked down for
Locky to slam home his second of the game. Rangers sensed they could get
something from the game and charged forward but with Woolwich running down
the clock it was too little too late.

Despite the result there was a lot of encouragement from the second half
performance and Woolwich will definitely be a team looking at promotion this
season. Without singling anyone out, special praise should go to the debutants
today, it was almost a completely new look side from last season but everyone
settled in well and thanks should go to the first team players who came along and
the others that offered their services. It was good to see everyone encouraging
each other and never giving and some of the football played showed that the
Reserves should have real hopes for promotion straight back the Division 3.

Veterans Team
Opposition: Maidstone United ( Swanley Rec. Friendly)
Score:      1:4F
Scorers:    N.Booker


Well, the season got off to an explosive start at Swanley on Sunday. Rangers
were up against Maidstone Utd vets for their first game of the season. Last
season has seen Rangers do the double over these opponents but it was evident
from the start that Maidstone were sporting a fairly new look in some

Rangers quickly found out to their cost that the new Maidstone No:10 was some
player. After only three minutes or so, a rather hopeful through ball looked well
covered by three of the Rangers back four but the No:10 showed an incredible
burst of pace to beat them all and Pete Jones to chip Maidstone ahead.

Rangers had a great chance to equalise when Kev Scott did well to pull a loose
ball back from the byline but Martyn Dawson just got his timing wrong to head
narrowly over. That said, Maidstone looked very dangerous and had several half
chances (all well blocked by Pete Jones) before the 10 again showed good pace
and control before lashing a shot into the corner of the goal.

Rangers then lost Kev Scott as something “went pop” when making a tackle and
he was replaced by Ian Bailey. Rangers went further behind just before the break
as Maidstone caught them cold again.

The second half continued much the same as the first, with Rangers conceding
from close range after a scramble. With game dead, Rangers finally carved
several good opportunities. First John Lindsey found Nick Booker who volleyed
just over and then John Chew nearly carved his way through.

By this time, Rangers decided to put Big Pete on the 10 and this worked really
well. If he managed to get past Pete (yes, he was that quick!) he normally found
Keiron Scott hammering into the tackle immediately after. It was this close
attention that bought an unfortunate incident about when after a little bit of
verbal fencing Keiron Scott was brutally elbowed off the ball. This sparked ugly
scenes which included the ref being grabbed around the throat by the No:10.
Once matter calmed down and the 10 had been sent off (and Keiron Scott had
realised where he was) the game continued.

The game was much more even with the 10 gone (he was that good that he
made a massive difference) and Rangers finally got their just rewards with when
John Chew crossed from the right and Nick Booker headed into the bottom
corner. But it was too little too late.

So a losing start for Rangers and a shame that the unsavoury incident spoiled an
otherwise good game. In truth, the Maidstone 10 would have caused any team
problems and had Maidstone not had him and Rangers taken just a few of the
chances they created, it could have been a very different score. Rangers played
some decent football in spells against a very good Vets side and that must be
encouraging. That said, special mention must go to Pete Jones who saved time
and again (particularly a fantastic double-save from a 1 v1) and was easily
Rangers outstanding player. Also, mentions to Josh Baker who had a sterling
game and for the returns of John Chew and Ian Bailey after long term injuries.
Good to have you back boys.

Superveterans Team

Opposition: Old Tamponians (Old Roan. Friendly)
Score:       1:3
Scorers:    J.Battershill

Squad: Warnet Potter Partridge Palmer Falvey Davitt Anderson Barnshaw
Phillips Marsh Battershill Christofi Ward, (all played)

Here we are again at the start of the season, lets hope we can win a few more
games than the last, and although we lost this one we were looking quite good as
a team.
The game started off very well with us putting Tamponians under pressure.
Unfortunately their first goal was very controversial. Our defence was put under
pressure and it was left to Pete (the cat) to save it but as he went up to catch the
ball he was barged in the side by Tamps. Thus the big striker and the ball was
dropped into the goal with Pete nearly following. Normally the ref. would have
protected the keeper and given a foul, but not this time. We got the next goal
with Trevor Marsh squaring the ball across the oncoming keeper from the right to
Jon Battershill who slotted it in the back of the net. Their second goal was a good
one, which saw us beaten down through our left midfield and then a crossed on to
the head of their attacker We were yet again put under pressure, mainly down
the their right and with our new found left back John Davitt doing a great job
having to do a lot of running to tackle their winger to ease that pressure, We
finished the half 1-2
The second half was not quite as good as the first for us but we did put some
good moves together and as a team we played well, for the first game. Once
again Tamps. got another controversial off side goal awarded to them. So the
game ended up 1-3
A fair result would have been 1-1 but never the less it was a good game with all
the team enjoying themselves, which is what it is all about.
