U15 Supplementary Cup Semi Final

Ballymacash Rangers 5 Abbey Villa 1

Ballymacash Rangers will face H&W Welders in the final of the Supplementary Cup after their comprehensive victory over Abbey Villa in the semi final last Wednesday night.

Rangers goals came from Jamie White (3), Josh Kelly and Adam Wright on a fantastic night for a team that’s only into its second season together.

The crowd that travelled down to Belfast were treated to some spectacular goals and a superb team performance.

This will be this young Rangers side’s first cup final appearance and it’s a reward for the dedication and commitment they have shown after a difficult first season in the South Belfast League.

They will face tough opposition when they play H&W in a final that will be played over the Christmas period but they’ll go into the game with confidence and won’t be happy going there just to make up the numbers.

Rangers league game against Bangor that was due to be played last Saturday was postponed due to the weather. This weekend they take on Shorts at Hydebank with a 10am ko.
