An away trip for the Rangers U/13 team saw a share of the spoils against a strong Nenagh Town in Nenagh on Saturday morning with the game finishing2-2. Well done lads.
Nenagh was the venue for a Shannon Rangers 2pm kick off in a tantalising Fast Food Cup encounter against a rejuvenated Nenagh Celtic (C) on Sunday last. A great game for neutrals which saw Shannon Rangers progress in the cup with 2 goals in the second half of extra time for the difference. Both teams started brightly but Celtic gained the upper hand after 20 minutes creating some fine chances before Shannon Rangers got into the game with a missed effort from John Flannery and another from Keith Kelly. The first half was hung on missed chances by both sides and the teams were all square at the break. The second half began as the first, both teams creating chances with Nenagh the more dominant but Michael Quinlan in goals was equal to the task. Rangers had their share of opportunities at the other end and were unlucky to see an effort come back off the upright and normal time finished 0-0 and the game went to extra time with Rangers becoming more dominant as the game went on. The second half of extra time was 5 minutes old when a moment of magic from Rangers saw Keith Kelly get a yard space and he rifled a shot into the back of the net. Keith could have doubled the score seconds later when John Stapleton released him through but his shot drifted just wide of the post. Rangers piled on the pressure and had several more chances when Barry Cahalan finished from a John Flannery corner to put the game out of Celtic’s reach. Well done lads.

The ‘Tip of the Week’ is- Home Security. Fit a door viewer, this will allow you to safely see who is outside prior to opening the door. Fit a door chain limiter this will allow you to open the door partly while still allowing you some control over security. Front and back doors should be kept locked day and night. Windows should also be locked.
