Not the finish to the campaign that Winterton Rangers would have wanted after a fine first season in charge for Manager Rob Watson. Rangers lost 5-3 to 16th-placed Armthorpe Welfare in a goal fest at Church Street yesterday afternoon-and Rob admitted that he’s looking forward to their last game and the end of the season, writes Colin Muncie.
The sides were level at 2-1 at the interval in front of 54 fans in Armthorpe. Kieran Wressel gave the visitors a sixth-minute lead, but Luke Williams equalised for the home side two minutes later, and Josh Dodd put Armthorpe in front after 27 mins. Elliott Broughton brought Rangers level after 31 minutes. Into the second half, and Williams put the home side in front again almost immediately, but Rangers his back immediately through Luke Anderson. Two late goals from Wayne Brook (88) and Williams’ hat-trick goal (89) clinched the home win.
Rob told the Bootiful Game “It was a great game for the neutral fans but poor for us. We started the game well but ended it poorly. It was a game of chances for both sides and Armthorpe took more than us. No team dominated- it was end to end resulting in a lot of goals. I think it goes without saying that everyone is ready for a break and we’ll look to rebuild next season”.
