For the first time in the club’s 42-year history Risborough Rangers will play under their newly erected floodlights against local rivals Tring Athletic tonight (Thursday).

In a specially arranged friendly fixture at Rangers’ Windsors ground in Horsenden Lane, Bob Rayner’s men will be taking on Julian Robinson’s Athletic, who are celebrating positive home ground news themselves (see story left).

Kick off for the historic match is 7.45pm. There is a club house, covered seating/stands, tea bar with hot and cold food/drinks and car park.

Admission will be just £2 for adults and £1 for OAPs and children. The club’s committee is urging as many people as possible to come along and support the team.

Meanwhile, on Saturday Risborough Rangers played their first home friendly of the season against Totternhoe and drew 1-1.

Rangers fielded a team including several triallists with Luke Hurley scoring the equalising goal with the last kick of the game.

After the Tring Athletic match, Risborough take on Aylesbury Dynamoes at 3pm on Saturday before another match against Aylesbury opposition, Bucks CC, on Monday night (7.30pm).
