RANGERS missed out on the opportunity of a double as they lost to Shipham in the Challenge Cup final.

Worle started well, but against the run of play, a long ball over the top caught out the Rangers defence and Shipham took the lead.

You may also want to watch:

Just before half-time Dan Liddiard spun superbly on the edge of the area and hit the ball across the keeper, who parried it for Dale to net the equaliser.

After the break, a deflected shot evaded Jakeman in the Worle goal and went into the far corner. Shipham extended their lead when Bray and Jakeman collided and scored the third goal.
