Hampden Heartache For Youths

April 28, 2010

Rangers 0 Celtic 2

It was a Hampden disappointment for the second year in succession for Rangers youths, losing to their greatest rivals in the Scottish Youth Cup Final at the national stadium tonight. The first half was a bit of a non event with both sides employing a five man midfield and  lone striker.

Rhys McCabe had an early effort cutting in from the left which keeper Danielle Giordano saved comfortably. At the other end Grant Adam advanced from his box to block Greig Spence as he chased a long ball.

These were really was the nearest to even a half chance in a tepid 45 minutes.

Half-Time:- Rangers 0 Celtic 0

With chances few and far between the first goal was going to be crucial and five minutes into the second half Celtic had a great chance when a Chris Scott slip allowed  Spence to race clear in to the Rangers box where he was denied by a fine Adam save. Rangers then created a shooting opportunity when Kyle Hutton and Kal Naismith set up McCabe who’s shot was straight at Giordano.

On 55 minutes Rangers came close to breaking the deadlock, McCabe picked out Hutton breaking in to the box and his hooked ball across goal found Archie Campbell looked certain to score, his strike from close range was powerful but unfortunately straight at Giordano and the ball bounced clear of the keeper.

The turning point in the game came in the space of two minutes just before the hour mark. A slack pass across the Celtic 18 yard box was picked up by Dylan McGeough and his shot left Giordano stranded only to go narrowly wide. A minute later Celtic were in front, substitute Sean Fitzharris who was formerly on Rangers books, picked the ball up wide on the left and cut inside to send a tremendous shot past Adam.

The goal gave the Celtic youngsters a surge in confidence and Rangers were struggling to make an impact to get back in to the game.  With just less than 20 minutes on the clock their task became harder still. A free kick wide on the right from James Keatings saw the other substitute Filip Twardzik rise unchallenged to head past Adam.

Five minutes later and only a fine save from Adam prevented Richie Towell from adding a third, played in by Fitzharris he went past two defenders inside the box and looked certain to score before Adam saved. Rangers tried to respond and good individual play by Naismith saw him create space at the edge of the box but his shot went just wide.

Youngsters Fall To United

April 23, 2010

Dundee United 2 Rangers o

A young youth side were a bit unfortunate to lose to a penalty and last-minute strike at St.Andrews this afternoon. A combination of injury, illness and suspension saw a few on the Under 17’s promoted to the Under 19’s for today’s clash. Those present at the St.Johnstone game a few weeks ago knew it would be “interesting” when they saw it was the referee that seems to have his own version of the rules of the game who was in charge.

Indeed in a first half with little incident it was the official that produced the first talking point. With quarter of an hour gone Chris Scott rose to head Kal Naismith’s corner goalwards where it struck a United defender and went behind with the Rangers players claiming handball. Where as a penalty would have been possibly a bit harsh the referee bizarrely awarded the home side a goal kick.

The half continued with little goalmouth action until around the half hour mark Grant Mosson and Ryan Dow combined on the left and the latter’s low cross saw John Murray shoot over. The only other effort of any note came just on the stroke of half time when Kris Irvine’s free kick found its way to Dow who’s shot was comfortably saved by Grant Adam.

Half-Time:- Dundee United 0 Rangers o

Just after half time Rangers threatened when Kal Naismith’s strike was saved at the post by home keeper Marc McCallum. On 50 minutes the home side took the lead from the penalty spot. Kamil Wiktorski missed a long ball and John Murray broke in to the penalty area, he hit the ground under pressure from Dylan McGeough and the referee deemed there was enough contact to award a penalty. Stuart Armstrong netted from the spot despite Adam getting his hand to his shot.

A minute later Dow tested Adam when he cut in from the right, with the Rangers keeper dealing without too much difficulty. On 55 minutes Rangers were unfortunate not to be back on level terms. A great delivery from Adam Hunter’s free-kick was met by Naismith, whose effort came back of the post the onrushing Scott Durie could only knock the ball wide with McCallum stranded.

As the game entered the last quarter of an hour Dow’s cross from the right was headed over by Armstrong. At the other end Christiano Kisuka cut in from the right near the byline and his shot across goal was touched wide by McCallum. With a couple of minutes remaining Durie’s throw-in saw Naismith produce a great piece on skill on the byline and Anthony Marenghi got a touch on his low cross and keeper McCallum had to save just under the crossbar. With Rangers pushing forward to chasing an equaliser United made the points safe in the final minute, Dow fed Stuart Armstrong and the United striker advanced to shoot past Adam.

Youths Bounce Back

April 20, 2010

Hibernian 0 Rangers 2

Rangers under 19’s got back to winning ways against Hibs at the Hibs Training Centre this afternoon. Billy Kirkwood welcomed back Gregg Wylde and Archie Campbell from suspension against a young Hibs side who were possibly looking ahead to next season.

Both sides struggled to handle the blustery conditions and the early play produced little of note. With the home side creating the first real opportunity on 19 minutes when Harry Monaghan set up Danny Handling who’s effort brought out a fine save from Grant Adam low to his left. From Scott Smith’s resultant corner David Crawford headed narrowly over.

Ten minutes later and a wind assisted long-range attempt from Rhys McCabe saw keeper Paul Grant gather at the second attempt. On 32 minutes Rangers took the lead from the penalty spot. A cross from Scott Durie on the right found its way to Max Wright inside the box, he turned and shot and his effort was adjudged to have been handled by the Hibs defender and the referee pointed to the spot. Archie Campbell stepped up to confidently beat Grant from 12 yards.

This seemed to give the Rangers youngsters a boost in confidence and they came close to increasing their lead. Ten minutes before the break Dylan McGeough and Rhys McCabe combined to set up Campbell at the edge of the box, his shot brought out a fine save from Grant. Two minutes later and the home keeper again excelled when McCabe’s cross from the left was headed towards the top corner by Max Wright, Grant diving high to his right clawed it away for a corner.

Half-Time:- Hibernian 0 Rangers 1

Rangers almost doubled their lead in the first minute of the second half, Max Wright sending Campbell bursting into the box, keeper Grant blocked his effort and as it spun towards the goal Mark Lancaster was on hand to clear. A few minutes later Hibs had a chance from the edge of the box but Dean Horribine shot just wide.

Ten minutes in and Scott Smith’s free kick looked to be comfortable for Adam, but he elected to punch, which caused a moment of panic before being cleared. The home side with the wind at their backs were having their best spell and Phil Addison created a chance for himself cutting in from the left and forced a save from Adam.

Rangers seemed to be coping better playing into the wind and substitute Kal Naismith set up Campbell but his shot lacked power and was easily saved by Grant. On 72 minutes Hibs had what was probably their best chance of the match, Addison lobbed the ball in to the box from the left where Crawford produced a great piece os skill to bring the ball under control only to shoot tamely at Adam.

With just under ten minutes remaining Rangers made the game safe. Gregg Wylde swung in a free kick from out on the left and Kyle Hutton sent a header looping over Grant and into the net.  Right at the end Hibs had a free-kick which was cleared to Campbell at the edge of his own box, the Rangers striker then ran the length of the park before bringing out a fine save from keeper Grant.

Gers Ease In To Glasgow Cup Final

April 14, 2010

Clyde 1 Rangers 6

Rangers Under 17’s eased past Clyde to reach the Glasgow Cup Final at Broadwood tonight. Only the woodwork and a fine performance by Clyde keeper Chris Tennent prevented the score line being even more emphatic.

Right from the first minute when Ewan McNeil cut inside and tested Chris Tennent who tipped his effort round the post, the Rangers youngsters were in command. Indeed only three minutes later they had taken the lead, Ewan McNeil went passed the full back on the right and his low cross was turned in to the net at the back post by Kyle McAusland.

Two minutes later and Rangers had doubled their lead, again it was created on the right, this time full back Adam Hunter provided the cross for Anthony Marenghi to net from close range. Five minutes later McAusland sent Hunter clear on the right and Lee Cochrane seemed certain to score from his cross but screwed his shot wide.

On the quarter-hour mark Cochrane beat the Clyde defence in the air to win Kamil Wiktorski’s forward ball and send himself clear, but he didn’t execute his attempted chip properly and Tennent saved comfortably. Clyde went straight up the other end to create their first chance when Jack Attwood won the ball and slipped in Chris Ferguson who’s effort was comfortably saved by Blair Currie.

Rangers then came close twice in as many minutes midway through the half. Dylan McGeough fed McNeil wide on the right and he cut inside and tested keeper Tennent who tipped the ball round the post for a corner. Then Michael Noble’s cross from the left found Lee Cochrane who’s effort hit the post and rolled across goal and clear.

Just after the half-hour mark Clyde were handed a route back into the game, when the Rangers defence failed to clear the ball fell to Chris Ferguson who’s shot was adjudged to have been handled by Wiktorski and the same player beat Blair Currie from the spot. Rangers response was to hit the woodwork twice before the break. An Anthony Marenghi free kick was headed back across goal by Wiktorski, where Cochrane headed against the post from close range. Then Marenghi played the ball into McAusland at the edge of the box who turned and sent his shot on to the bar and over.

Clyde’s Ross MacKinnon had the final effort of the half which was saved by Currie, although it was probably going just wide.

Half Time :- Clyde 1 Rangers 2

Rangers increased their lead in the first minute after the break, Noble and Marenghi combined on the left and Lee Cochrane collected the cross around the penalty spot to shoot past Tennent. A minute later and McGeough sent Marenghi clean through, just when it looked like a fourth goal he shot past.

On 52 minutes Clyde had a great chance to reduce the deficit, when Scott Breddy’s cross broke to Ferguson inside the box, but Scott Rumsby made a great block. Rangers went back on the attack and McGeough drove forward from midfield to release McAusland on the right and his cross come shot flashed across goal with Cochrane just failing to connect at the back post.

A minute later and McGeough’s free-kick from the left hand side of the box hit the outside of Tennent’s left hand post with the keeper beaten. The home keeper then denied Cochrane, tipping over his attempted lob when he was sent clear. He then bettered that with a fine diving save to deny the same player only a minute later.

Tennent then had further saves in quick succession, saving McAusland’s header from a Marenghi cross low to his left. Then coming rushing from his line to block from the same player when he was sent clear by McGeough’s pass.

He was helpless on 63 minutes when Kyle McAusland ran through on to Adam Hunter’s long pass to net Rangers fourth. Two minutes later the home keeper again excelled, Steven Hetherington broke from the halfway line and found Ewan McNeil coming in from the right, Tennent denying the Rangers wide man blocking with his legs.

A minute later Rangers scored the best goal of the game. A great piece of skill by Hunter brought the ball under control out on the right, he passed the ball down the line to McNeil, who’s’ pass inside was gathered by Dylan McGeough breaking into the box to fire past Tennent.

On 73 minutes Tennent again advanced from his line to prevent a goal,  this time it was Cochrane clear on to a Hunter pass. A minute later and the scoring was complete, substitute George Scott’s first touch of the match sending Anthony Marenghi clear to beat the advancing Tennent.

To Clyde credit they never gave up and threatened to pull a goal back near the end. Breddy played the ball in from the right and Ferguson shot across goal and wide of the far post. In the final minute MacKinnon’s free-kick forced Currie to tip over.

Nine Man Youths Held

April 10, 2010

St.Johnstone 0 Rangers 0

Rangers 19’s failed to overcome a spirited St.Johnstone side and a bizarre refereeing performance at Stirling University. The Ibrox youngsters finished the game with nine men when Gregg Wylde and Archie Campbell were red carded for “expressing an opinion” on the referee’s performance.

St. Johnstone started the better and had an early chance when ball broke to Stevie May inside the box and he volleyed narrowly over. For the next twenty minutes it was a battle for supremacy on what was a tight bumpy pitch.

The home side again came close to opening the scoring when a Ricky McIntosh corner was headed goalwards by Vinny ??? fortunately Gregg Wylde was on the line to clear. Rangers immediately threatened at the other end, good play on the right by Max Wright saw Rhys McCabe just fail to covert his cross and Ross Alexander cleared over his own bar for a corner. From Max Wright’s corner Kyle Hutton headed straight at keeper Neil Duffy.

A minute later Rangers had another chance created down the right by Archie Campbell and McCabe volleyed his low cross narrowly over. Just after the half-hour mark Rangers were denied by Duffy, a free-kick from the halfway line by Jamie Ness was headed on by McCabe and Max Wright’s goal bound header was tipped round the post by Duffy. A couple of minutes before half time May had a chance for the home side from the edge of the box which Grant Adam saved comfortably. At this point the referee had managed to yellow card three Rangers players, Chris Scott’s being the most bizarre when the ball bounced up and hit his hand, but more was to come in the second half.

Half-Time:- St.Johnstone 0 Rangers 0

After a quiet start to the second half Rangers looked to have taken the lead on 63 minutes, following a Dylan McGeough corner from the left , the ball broke to Kamil Wiktorski inside the box and his shot looked net bound all the way only to come back off the cross bar. At the other end good play on the right by May gave Stephen Reynolds a chance but Scott Durie was there to clear the danger.

The Referee continually penalised Rangers for dubious offences where as similar infringements from the home side went unpunished. On 67 minutes the woodwork denied Rangers again, Archie Campbell played through by McCabe saw his shot beat Duffy but clip the outside of the post.

Five minutes later and Gregg Wylde let his frustrations get the better of him and when harshly adjudged to have fouled, he was straight red carded when he said something to the referee. Things were to get worse with ten minutes remaining when only the referee saw a foul by Archie Campbell and when he made a comment he was shown a second yellow and subsequent red card. The frustration was highlighted when between those red cards the home side’s May blatantly kicked the ball away when flagged offside, an offence that went unpunished.

With six minutes remaining Matt Helmsley made progress down the right and his ball into the box gave David Heagney a chance and he was denied by a fine Chris Scott block. Despite being down to nine men Rangers were looking just a likely to score as the home side, and with three minutes left McGeough’s effort from 25 yards had Duffy at full stretch to tip over. Right at the end St.Johnstone had a great chance to win the game, with Rangers pushing forward for a throw down near the St.Johnstone byline, the ball eventually finding its way to keeper Duffy. His long kick saw Reynolds win the battle with the lone defender Scott Durie, he set up May for what looked a certain goal, but he shot past with only Adam to beat.

Full-Time:- St.Johnstone 0 Rangers 0

St.Johnstone:- Neil Duffy; Ross Alexander (Liam Caddis 21mins), Sean Porter, Vinny ????, Johnny Lindsay; Darren Kelly, Matt Helmsley, Ricky McIntosh, David Heagney (Kieran O’Hear); Stephen Reynolds, Steve May.

Liverpool Visit

April 7, 2010

When I seen that Liverpool were bringing a couple of their youth teams to Murray Park I thought it would be worth a half day to see how we compare. As the age groups between Scotland and England differ slightly, it was billed as Rangers 13/14’s and 14/15’s. I was hoping to keep an eye on both games, unfortunately the pitches used meant that wasn’t possible, so I decided to take in the older game.

Rangers 6 Liverpool 0

As the teams emerged it became apparent that the Rangers side was on average was a bit older and stronger than their English opponents. It was Liverpool who threatened first when their central midfielder was allowed to break unchallenged and test Sam George from the edge of the box.

A few minutes later Tom Walsh almost gave Rangers the lead, picking up a slack pass he shot past the keeper only to see his shot come back off the post. The same player then created another chance when his corner from the left was headed goalwards by Darren Ramsay but the Liverpool defender cleared off the line.

Rangers Trialist No.7 then made good progress down the right and his cut back broke to Tom Walsh who was denied by the keeper at point-blank range.

Rangers then hit Liverpool with two goals right at the start of the second period. First Tom Walsh fired past the keeper, then a great cross from the left by Ciaran Summers, saw recent signing from Boys Club football Craig Halkett power his header into the net.

Darren McGill then came close when is shot from the edge of the box rebounded from the post with the keeper beaten. At the other end only a great piece of defensive play from Stuart Urquhart prevented the visitors pulling a goal back. Rangers went straight up the other end and extended their lead, Scott Roberts and Tom Walsh carved open the Liverpool defence and when the former was denied by the keeper, Tom Walsh was on hand to net the rebound.

With the Anfield youngsters heads going down, Rangers added a further two goals before the end of the second period. First Charlie Telfer sent Darren McGill clear to shoot home, then the ball was moved across the box from Trialist No7 via Charlie Telfer to Andy Murdoch who scored from just inside the box.

The third period saw the Liverpool lads rally and only fine save from the Rangers substitute keeper prevented them scoring, when he tipped a fine effort from the left hand side of the box on to the bar and over. The scoring was completed near the end when Blair Spittal sent Gloady Ntumba clear and he made no mistake.

Where as it was a good performance from the Rangers boys I also felt it was an opportunity missed. A better match up in the age and physique of the teams would have given an accurate comparison of the youth setups.

Rangers Squad:- Sam George, Johnny Bradley, Ciaran Summers, Stuart Urquhart, Jordan Wilson, Darren Ramsay, Scott Roberts, Craig Halkett, Tom Walsh, Darren McGill, Gloady Ntumba, Jack Donaldson, Willie McCall, Blair Spittal, Andy Murdoch.

There were three players I didn’t recognise so I assume were trialists. Sub Keeper (Scott ??), N0 7 (Eric ??) played the whole game, initially wide right then through the middle and No.18 (Josh ??) came on at right back.

Rangers 2 Liverpool 2

The younger team were held to a draw, but I can’t comment on this game as I didn’t see any of it. After Liam Kelly had saved an earlier penalty, Rangers went into a two goal lead with goals from Callum Shipcott & Danny Stoney. Only to be pegged back and the game finished all square.

Rangers squad:- Liam Kelly, Ryan Sinnamon, Liam Smith, Lewis Martin, Dylan Dykes, Scott Lochead, Kjeld McIntyre, Lewis Spence, Luke Hammond, Lewis Morgan, Jordan O’Donnell, Adam Wilson, Danny Stoney, Jamie Mills, Callum Shipcott.

Late Goal Dents 19’s League Hopes

April 5, 2010

Rangers 0 Celtic 1

A Greig Spence goal seven minutes from time was a major blow to Rangers Under 19’s league hopes. It now leaves their city rivals seven points ahead although the Ibrox youngsters have two games in hand. The task ahead for Billy Kirkwood’s side is to win their six remaining games, which are all away from home and hope Celtic slip up in one of their remaining for games.

Once again the fixture clashed with a first team game so I was unable to attend. The link below will take you to the official site’s match report.

Rangers 15’s Win Italian Tournament

There was also some good news on the youth front at the weekend, with Rangers Under 15’s emerging top of the pile at the Torneo Internazionale “Memorial Stefano Gusella”.

The tournament include Spartak Moscow, Lyngby, Den Hagg, HJK Helsinki, Sampdoria as well a few smaller Italian clubs. Rangers were drawn in the same group as Lyngby, Chisola Calcio and Pinerolo. Rangers had wins against Pinerolo (1-0) and Chisola Calcio (2-0) and lost to Danish side Lyngby (0-1). With both Chisola Calcio and Lyngby over coming Pinerolo, the Danes lost their other game to Chisola Calcio. It meant three teams on six points, but Rangers topped the group on goal difference.

The Murray Park youngsters then edged out the Italians 2-1 to lift the trophy, with the goals coming from Dylan Dykes and Willie McCall.

To quote someone who was there to cheer on the boys.

“2-1 flattered the Italians and the team played very good football.The squad was also very young,  with no fewer than five players eligible to play under 14’s.Well done to the coaching staff and the parents who travelled. Once again the behaviour was superb and we sang our hearts out to support the boys, well done to all.”
