This game was a close encounter for the Rangers; Dr. Crokes being a strong club, our lads put it up to them from the start. Laune Rangers backs in Cormac Doyle and Rory O Connor played blinders as did all the defence, they stood together through out the game.
The Rangers midfielders and forwards played out of their skins with Jack Evans personal tally of 1-1, Dean Callan 2-0, Conor Burke 1-1, Shane Doona 0-2 , Timmy Shea 0-1, Barry Connor 0-2, Evan Madden 0-1 and Sean Cleary 0-1. A great performance.
The Lads were disappointed with the defeat, but, the great spirit, determination, unity and pride in the jersey shown by all the players was in abundance. Everyone on the panel played their part and can be very proud of themselves.
