DIVISION 4 Worle Rangers bowed out of the Knockout Cup after a battling performance against first division Kewstoke Lions.
Rangers competed well from the first whistle against a strong Kewstoke side and the back-line of Nott, Wilson, Jake Hannam and Royce were tested and did well, with admirable back-up from keeper Jakeman.
Bray, Young and Brinson did well in midfield and Williams, Troy Hannam and Westgarth worked hard up front.
The first goal after 15 minutes was desperately unlucky as a clearance from Jake Hannam hit the retreating Bray and fired into the bottom corner for the only goal of the half.
The second half was more open and although Kewstoke created some chances, Rangers more than matched their higher-division opponents.
Troy Hannam was thwarted twice by Blake and a terrific curling free-kick from Quick evaded everyone in the area, but against the run of play Kewstoke scored a second goal.
There were many fine performances, certainly skipper Wilson, Young and both Hannam’s stood out, but on top form were Brinson and Curry Garden man of the match Dean Bray.
