Rangers make progress in the West Wales Premier League Cup

MUMBLES Rangers progressed to the second round of the West Wales Premier League Cup on Saturday (Mar 19) as they beat Seven Sisters Onllwyn 4-2.

A very blustery Welfare Ground in Onllwyn made playing conditions tricky.

Both teams had their chances in the first half but it was the home team who scored after a quarter of an hour through Timothy Stephens and doubled their lead three minutes before half time when Nathan Jones netted.

Rangers’ Jordan Lloyd-Evans was unlucky to see his 25 yards shot rattle the home side’s crossbar.

Two nil down at half time spurred Rangers on in the second half and it was Ricky Kerr who started the comeback five minutes in from the restart.

Rangers’ dominant come back was completed when Rangers Captain Chrissy Allen rounded off his team’s scoring by getting the fourth goal to ensure Rangers are in the next round of the Cup.

Their next game is on Saturday, March 26, and it sees them host Dafen in the second round, kick off at 2pm at Underhill Park.

The winners of the tie will go on to face Penlan in the semi-finals, scheduled for April 2.

The other semi-final between Evans and Williams and Giants Grave will take place on Saturday, March 26.
