The Rangers first team overcame a youthful but talented United U21s side in blustery conditions at the sports park.

Experimenting with a new system, Rangers started well but the United youngsters came into the game the more the half went on as they confidence began to grow, which in turn saw some neat play from the away side despite not really testing keeper Joshua Langley-Fineing in the rangers goal.

It was rangers that took the lead on the half hour mark after recent signing JL Morgan pounced from close range after the United keeper failed to deal with a routine cross.

With changes made at half time only to personell rather than formation, Rangers stuck to task and were immediately rewarded when substitute Jamie Strong stuck the ball away after a skirmish in the 6 yard box to double rangers lead.

Rangers then saw a good finish from another substitute A.Trialist via long range which saw a 3 goal cushion open up. Morgan then scored his second of the game after bursting through the United midfield and had the composure to slot the ball past the United number 1 from outside the box for 4-0.

Rangers fifth came when United failed to clear a corner effectively which saw B.Trailist slide the ball home from close range after the ball had been put back into the danger zone.

Rangers rounded of the scoring courtesy of a sweeping move which saw Dylan Nanuck apply an exquisite first time finish into the roof of the net after an excellent cross from the rangers right hand side.

All in all, a great work out for the lads with valuable minutes banked against a very promising squad of youngsters who will do well this season playing in their respective age groups at Eastbourne United. 👌

Many thanks to Steve and his team for the game, and good luck for the rest of the season.
