Worle Rangers lost their final match of the season at Wrington-Redhill.
Wrington Redhill Res 5
Worle Rangers 1
RANGERS took the unorthodox selection method of picking positions on the turn of a playing card for their last game of the season, with Stephens starting in goal and Royce up front.
In difficult conditions, Rangers tried to get the ball down and utilise the wings through Brown and Chatterley, but chances were hard to come by. Williams was Rangers’ saviour on a number of occasions at the back and Wilson held the ball up well with admirable support from Royce.
Wrington took the lead just before the break with a header which took a deflection off left back Willment.
Rangers made changes with disastrous consequences at the break, with Quick replacing Stephens in goal. Royce and Wilson returned to defensive roles, with Mickey Ayers and Westgarth trying to spread the ball where possible.
More Wrington goals followed in the second half, but Rangers scored through Stephens, after good work by Clark and Williams.
Skipper for the day Tom Williams and Dean Bray were pipped to the Curry Garden man of the match by Jamie Stephens.
