Rangers lift Guernsey FA trophy

Rangers beat Belgrave Wanderers 2-1 at Footes Lane to lift the Guernsey FA Cup for the first time.

A first-half strike by Piers Ockleford put the Red and Blacks ahead.

Simon Marley converted a second-half penalty to level the game before a fantastic lob from Dale Garland decided the game.

Rangers coach Paul Ockleford said: "It's not very often we get to finals and to get there and win it is even better. I thought we deserved it."

I was going to cross the ball up to the last minute, but half a second before I hit it I changed my mind and just thought 'I'll go for goal' - luckily it paid off

He added: "We were committed, we were organised at the back, we applied ourselves and had a great attitude.

"It's really pleasing for not only myself and the players, but the committee and everyone at Rangers."

Man-of-the-match Garland, who is better known as a 400m Olympic athlete, caused problems for Bels with his pace throughout the game and scored Rangers' decisive goal.

He said: "The ball kind of dropped down, I managed to muscle the defender out of the way. I was going to cross it up to the last minute, but half a second before I hit it I changed my mind and just thought 'I'll go for goal'. Luckily it paid off."
