New Year, New Challenges
Moreton Rangers Football Club started the year in a positive position on the field and with our new Clubroom reaching completion, the off field position is showing progress. Further Challenges have to be met to take the club to the next level as we still need to re-instate our floodlights on our main pitch to give us a chance of promotion to the next level.
The Clubroom offers a chance for spectators to meet and watch a game under cover and enjoy refreshments, and then for the visiting players to be offered hospitality after the game. This building project would not have been achieved without the generous support of local business Mike Honour Windows Ltd for supplying the toughened glass windows.
Moreton Rangers First Team continued their good run in the league, beating Cheltenham Saracens Reserves 10-0 followed by 2-0 wins over Bishops Cleeve and Farringdon. These wins leave them lying second in the league with big games against league leaders Newent and local rivals Bourton Rovers coming up in February. In the County Cup a last minute quarter final win over Barometrics 2-1 means a trip away for the semi-final at Cam Bulldogs near Dursley on Saturday 3rd February.
Moreton Rangers Reserves had a couple of games postponed by the weather in December but have since notched up a couple of victories, despite missing some key players, away at Witney Wanderers 3-1 and Hailey 1-0. This has lifted them to fourth in their league only 2 points behind the leaders with a game in hand.
Home Fixtures in February

Moreton Rangers Under 11 Team
Moreton Rangers under 11 team started 2018 having their first game fall foul of the weather before having a home win over Ducklington 3-0. The team are in the League Champions Cup with a game away at Launton in early February where they hope to progress further.
Coach Harry Peters is a busy man, not only looking after our Under 11 squad on Saturday Mornings; he plays for our adult teams in the afternoons and is taking his F.A. Level 2 Coaching Course on Sundays.
He is very pleased with the great attitude of his team “Everyone wants to play and support each other on and off the field which is a credit to the team spirit, this makes the job of coaching them a pleasure ,we are also very grateful to The Hanger Café Bar at Upper Rissington for sponsoring the team kit”. He would also like to thank his assistant Wills Dubery for his hard work, he also coaches and plays for the Adult Team most Saturdays.
