Croydon Rangers Gridiron Club Registration Day 2016
The Croydon Rangers 2016 Senior Season Registration Day will be held on the 27th February, starting at 11am. The registration day will be held at Ranger Field, which is on Springfield Avenue in Croydon.
Come along to meet the coaches, and find out everything you want or need to know about playing gridiron for the reigning senior Division 1 State Champions.
The information session will be followed by a Q&A where any questions you still have will be answered. You will also get the opportunity to speak one on one with the coaches. Following this, the Club will be facilitating registration of new and returning players alike.
And to get an even better idea of how this great Club operates, the Rangers are hosting a double header of matches on the day, with the Juniors kicking off at 10am, and the women’s team playing at 2pm. Stick around and watch some great quality junior and women’s football, with both our teams vying for spots in the 2016 finals series.
Week 1 of the 2016 GV summer season kicked off last weekend with the Rangers junior team heading to Berwick on Sunday to play the Pakenham Silverbacks. A beautiful day was on hand, perfect for football, and the guys were happy to have the early morning game before the temperature rose too far.
With the two teams finishing 3rd (Rangers) and 4th (Pakenham) in the recently completed 2015 season, recent form suggested that this game would be tight, with both teams looking to set a positive tone from week 1.
The game started scrappy on offense for the Rangers, with a fumble following the second play from scrimmage after taking the opening kick-off. With good field position, the Silverbacks quickly threatened, but a solid red zone defensive stance turned the ball back to the Rangers. The first quarter continued a back and forth with both teams defenses standing up on big fourth downs.
