Rangers were at home in the league last Sunday, but lost 3-1 to Borrisokane (b). After an awful start with 9 players Rangers gave a doubtful penalty away and had a man sent off. We fought hard and pulled a good goal back through a fierce Barry Cahalan strike midway through the second half, but it was not to be in the end.
It is important that players turn up on time to every game, half an hour before kick-off is not a big ask.
Training is in the complex in Borrisokane each Wednesday at 8pm. As always all players are asked to attend and new players are always welcome.
