Rangers 15’s -1- Queen’s Park 16’s -1

Rangers under 15’s took on Queen’s Park under 16’s at Murray Park on Sunday afternoon. The Rangers squad included three under 14’s, Dylan Dykes who has played at 15’s all season was joined by Scott Roberts and Greg Pescizio.

The match was played over three thirty minute periods and the first thing of note came after ten minutes when Andy Murdoch took a knock and had to be replaced by Dylan Dykes. Callum McConnell had a couple of chances, first after good work on the left by Darren McGill he headed tamely into the keepers hands. Then when played through by Charlie Telfer he shot straight at the keeper.

Just at the end of the first period the Queen’s Park keeper had to look sharp coming from his line to just get there before Charlie Telfer who was chasing a through ball from Darren Ramsay. And it was Ramsay who had the first effort of the second period, shooting from the edge of the box that the Queen’s Park keeper tipped round the post.

At the other end the Rangers trialist keeper made a similar save to deny Queen’s Park. Rangers took the lead when Callum McConnell won the ball on the left and cut inside the box to score from a tight angle.

The visitors equaliser came in the third period, when Greg Pescizio who had performed well, just failed to cut out a through ball and the visitor’s striker ran on to shoot past Sam George. As the younger Rangers side  tired in the closing stages it took two fine saves from Sam George in one on ones to keep them level. Then right at the end Danny Hutchinson had a chance to win it for Rangers, but he shot over from a good position inside the box.

Rangers:- Gareth Deane (Sam George); Jack Donaldson, Greg Pescizio, Stuart Urquhart, Jordan Wilson (Ciaran Summers); Scott Roberts (Willie McCall), Darren Ramsay, Andy Murdoch (Dylan Dykes), Darren McGill (Blair Spittal); Callum McConnell (Danny Hutchinson), Charlie Telfer.

Also on Sunday afternoon the under 17’s played Hearts at Riccarton and I got some brief details of the 1-1 draw. In what was a competitive encounter Rangers went behind ten minutes into the second-half.

And the young Gers were reduced to ten men on 79 minutes when Gregor Fotheringham was red carded. A minute later Robbie Crawford grabbed the equaliser, running on to Dylan McGeough’s through ball to get a touch to nudge the ball past the on rushing keeper.
