Gorleston Rangers Summer Tournament 2017
Gorleston Rangers 29th Annual Youth Football Tournament
In association with Specsavers Great Yarmouth
Media partners: Great Yarmouth Mercury
Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 July 2017
Hopefully you and your team enjoyed last year’s event and will enter again this year. The attached letter and application form will answer any queries that you may have about the tournament. The only change this year is that all age groups are five a side, under 6 to 10 playing mini soccer and under 11 and above playing with under head height restrictions. If after reviewing these papers, you have any queries in respect of this year’s tournament, please contact me.
Last year’s event once again attracted nearly two hundred and twenty teams over the weekend, so early application is encouraged. Last year some of the age groups were over-subscribed. Entry is accepted on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Please feel free to pass this invitation onto anyone else that you think might be interested in entering a team.
I hope that your team is enjoying a successful season and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future..
Presentation Night 2016
Presentation Night 2016
Gorleston Rangers FC founded in 1984 held its Annual Presentation Evening at the Ocean Room to mark the end of the 2015/2016 season. The Club entered 23 teams in the Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League and 1 team in the Gt. Yarmouth Adult Sunday league. One of the largest youth football clubs in Norfolk, GRFC is a Charter Standard Development Club and was last season further honoured by being named Charter Standard Development Club of the Year by Norfolk County FA. All football coaches at the Club have undertaken coaching qualifications, hold First Aid certificates and have been subject to CRB/DBS clearance. The Club holds mid-week sessions for U5 and U6 players as well as a Saturday Morning Soccer School in preparation for Development Football from U7 onwards. The highlight of the year is the Annual Club Tournament to be held at the Ormiston Academy in July which attracts up to 200 teams from all over the area with ages ranging from U7 to U16.
The Club has had another successful season with a number of teams experiencing success in both league and cup competitions. The Annual Presentation Evening provides the opportunity for the Club to showcase its achievements and celebrate together with each player receiving an individual trophy in recognition of their commitment to GRFC. In addition to individual trophies, each team manager selects a Managers Player, Players Player and Clubman who receive an extra trophy in recognition of their achievements. The Club once again has recognised the loyalty of a number of U16 players who have played all of their youth football for Gorleston Rangers. The Presentation Evening at the Ocean Room, sponsored by Specsavers (Gt. Yarmouth) was attended by approximately 1000 people with former Norwich City Manager and Player Dave Stringer on hand to present all of the trophies.
The Club is looking to expand next season and will be offering opportunities for both boys and girls who wish to play football. There are vacancies for coaches and players at all age groups - for further information and details on how to join Gorleston Rangers FC, contact either Club Chairman Chris Dunne on 01493 601256 or Club Secretary Graham Gibbins on 01502 730923.

Gorleston Rangers Under 15 Falcons Win the Cup!
Gorleston Rangers under 15 falcons
Won the under 15 NSYL shield final against a very sporting Kirkley & Pakefield Royals 2-0. We controlled most of the game, but K &P did keep us on our toes when they moved the ball quickly from back to front. We took the lead with a good 30 yard free kick from Lewis. Kieran made a good double save when K & P broke through our defence. Ray played a great defence splitting forty yard pass to Kalum who clinically lofted the ball over the advancing K & P goalkeeper. With Dan, Connor and Andreas controlling the centre of the park, we dictated most of the play. Joe was very unlucky not to add a third as his shot was deflected out for a corner. We won a lot of corners, but K & P defended very resolutely. All 16 players can be pleased with their performances. NSYL MOM selected by K & P manager was awarded to Kieran. The game was played in a very good spirit with hardly any fouls committed during the whole game.
U14 Eagles win the shield
Congratulations to Andy Bell and the U14 Eagles who won the NSYL U14 Shield yesterday at Emerald Park following extra time and a penalty shoot-out!
Next Sunday the U13 Eagles will be in action in the U13 Cup KO 10.00 and the U15 Falcons will be in action in the U15 Shield KO 2.00 - both games are at Emerald Park....
Support from other managers/players in the Club will be most welcome...
