Rangers grab the bragging rights over Town in local derby


Longhoughton Rangers U11s played Alnwick Town U11s at Westfield Park, Longhoughton, in the NEYD Cup.

A local derby with plenty at stake for the young players, a number of them going to school together in the town.

Rangers, having had a tough start in their new league campaign, had something to prove to themselves and their coaches and responded in a very positive manner.

Goals from Euan Duffin, Daylan Eden, Harvey Patrick, Ben Renton, Robert Curry, Jack Grisdale and Thomas Newton saw Rangers advance to the next round after a wonderful football match and a great advert for junior football in the area.
