RANGERS wrapped up the Division 3 title against a battling AFC Nailsea to confirm their fourth promotion in as many years.

Worle were the more dominant force, especially from set pieces with Hannam being unfortunate not to convert following a well-placed header. Bray had a header cleared off the line following a Dugmore corner as the first-half ended goal-less.

The second half was a similar story with Rangers looking to make a breakthrough. The breakthrough came following a neat one-two between Quick and Randall, the ball found its way to Willment, who gave the keeper no chance.

Over the course of the season, Rangers have been consistent throughout showing unity and fully deserve the title. Special mention goes to Jake Hannam, but the Curry Garden man of the match went to Ben Earey.
