New season new start for Moreton Rangers U8s with a strong squad of 20 players for coaches Darren Honour & Jack Wise to develop new skills. With a great start to the season with 7 league games played, 7 wins registered with some really entertaining football on show Darren said
“At this age it is key trying to keep the ball on the floor the more players are touching the ball, the more touches on the ball mean more development, We are looking at making the Team move forward as one not as individuals.”
This hard work early in the season was rewarded when the U8s went a Tournament at Carterton and played five games, winning them all without conceding a goal, which was a great team effort. Moreton Rangers encourages Football as Fun for All.
Big thank you to our new sponsors, The Garage Moreton in Marsh for making us look so smart in our new Macron kit.
