Redgate Rangers FC hit Carrow Road
Saturday 11 May saw the Redgate Rangers FC take to Carrow Road, home of champions Norwich City.
By far the biggest event that they have attended since they started playing, the day marked a momentous occasion for the club and gave the children the opportunity to hang out in the changing rooms and walk through the famous tunnel onto the pitch.
Secretary Andy May said: “They all had a superb day out, with four matches being played per team on the pitch at Carrow Road. They side brilliantly against some really good opposition (in general, probably the best/most talented teams they’ve come up against so far—teams from as far as London were taking part, so the level was really strong)."
"The under 7s came third in their age group, the under 8s a little lower down the table but had they had a little bit of luck at certain times they would likely have ended up in the top 4 of their age group also.”
The two teams (the under 7s and under 8s) play in the Mid Norfolk Youth League during the main football season and they play various tournaments and festivals over the summer months.
The match marked the pinnacle of a very busy time for the club, as they prepare for tournaments and pre-season friendlies through the summer to prepare them for the start of their next proper season in September.
On the subject of the future of the club and recruiting more players, Andy adds: “Training is usually on a Thursday evening at Old Hunstanton, 6pm start. We also have an under 9’s team competing in the same league (Mid Norfolk Youth League). We’re hoping to start a younger team also, but that is always subject to having enough volunteers and coaches. Best way to double check is email email@example.com for details of times and spaces available etc.”
