GORLESTON RANGERS FC – CONTINUING A SUCCESS STORY
Gorleston Rangers FC, originally founded in 1984, has gone from strength to strength over the years culminating in yet another successful season during 2011/2012. The Club entered 27 teams in the Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League, 1 team in the North East Norfolk League, 2 girls teams and 1 ladies team in the Norfolk Womens and Girls League and 1 mens team in the Cliff Hotel Sunday League.
The largest youth football club in Norfolk, Gorleston Rangers FC is a Charter Standard Development Club, a status which reflects the high standards set by the Club's personnel. All coaches have undertaken a minimum of Level 1 coaching qualifications, hold First Aid certificates and have been given CRB clearance. The Club also offers opportunities for beginners in the shape of both U5 and U6 midweek training together with a Saturday morning Soccer School for all ages. The Annual Tournament is probably the biggest tournament in the area with around 200 teams aged from 7 – 16 and this year will be held at the Ormiston Academy in Gorleston on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June.
Honours for this last season are as follows: U9 runners-up in Division One and champions in Division Four, U10 cup finalists, U11 Division Two champions and shield winners, U13 Division One champions and Division Two champions in the NE Norfolk league, U14 Division One champions, U15 Division One runners-up and U16 Division One champions, shield winners and Ipswich Open Cup finalists. The Mens team reached the final on the Division Two Cup and the Ladies team has gained promotion from Division Two to Division One.
Gorleston Rangers is now looking ahead to the 2012/2013 season and hoping to build on the successes already achieved. The Club has recently established a close link with Gorleston FC and as a result will gain access to the training pitch and various facilities at Emerald Park. This, together with a move for the Club from Lynn Grove High School to the Magdalen Playing Fields, will see all teams able to play their home fixtures at the same venue. The link with Gorleston FC will also provide older players the opportunity to play Ridgeons League football as the Club hope to enter an U18 team next season.
