Rangers create club history
5:22pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in Sport
BLACK Country Rangers basked in the glory of another red letter day for the Dudley based side when celebrating their first ever venture into the FA Cup with a 3-1 win at Midland Alliance side Heath Hayes.
The result was never in doubt from the moment Paul Oakley drove home a long range pile-driver on 25 minutes.
Josef Jakob then knocked the stuffing out of Heath Hayes with a goal just before half-time.
A second Jakob goal on the hour sealed victory for Rangers and clinched a mouth-watering home tie against Halesowen Town in the next round.
Black Country boss Paul Garner said: “It was great. I loved every minute of it. The nice thing was that everyone in the club was involved.”
Garner brought in summer signing Craig Frost, a capture from Wednesfield, for his debut in central defence after the defender suffered a broken toe in pre-season.
The match with Halesowen Town is likely to take place on Sunday, September 1, as landlords Tividale are also through to the preliminary round and will play their home tie on Saturday, August 31.
Rangers return to West Midlands League action this Saturday when they entertain Wolverhampton Sporting Community at Packwood Road.
