Shannon Rangers emerged victorious in the first round of the Tipperary Cup this week with a 2-0 win over Streamstown Celtic. Rangers dominated the first half but were held 0-0 in the first 45 by a resilient Streamstown defence. We started strongly and broke the deadlock shortly after half time with a superb close range finish by Darren Carroll. Streamstown came back strong but the Rangers defence stood strong, and the fares were firmly shut. A fine solo goal with a run from just inside the Streamstown half courtesy of Austin Tierney, added to the tally for Rangers and in truth it could have been more but for a fine display by the Streamstown keeper. Rangers go out against Sallypark A in the next round of the cup- date of fixture to be announced. Training has resumed in the complex in Borrisokane, Wednesday’s @8pm. As always all players are asked to attend and new players are always welcome. Keep an eye on the fixtures for this coming weekends game, all support is greatly appreciated.
