Conference semi final THIS SATURDAY @ Ranger Field

Article updated

The Croydon Rangers host the Bendigo Dragons this Saturday at Ranger Field in the first Conference Semi Final at 1pm.

The bar will be open from midday, the canteen will be serving the World Famous Ranger Burgers and of course the grandstand provides the very best view in all of Gridiron Victoria.

The winner will advance to the Conference Championship to face the Monash Warriors the following weekend with the winner of that match heading to the 2014 TGI Friday’s Vic Bowl in Bendigo.

Dragons come to town fresh off a win and despite losing both head to head matches this year will be keen for their first playoff victory in only their second season.

299 games down with one to go for an epic milestone

Article updated

Tom Kinloch will reach an epic milestone this Saturday

When Tom Kinloch laces up his boots and takes the field on Saturday against the Miners he will reach a mile stone that no one in Victoria and likely Australia has ever got close to to.

300 games of American Football is a massive number because most years the season has contained between 10 and 14 games subject to league make up.

Tom is extending his own games played record not only with Croydon but all across the Gridiron Australia community. Tom also became a life member of Gridiron Victoria in 2012, and of course he will also become a life member of the Rangers as well but due to the constitution of the club we have to wait until he retires to make him one.

Who knows when that might happen!

We invite the entire Rangers family down on Saturday (19th of July) to:

Sydney Pargeter Reserve
Power Road
Endeavour Hills VIC 3802
Kick Off at 1:30pm

We look forward to seeing everyone at the game.
