Offwell Rangers sign two from Axminster Town

15:41 07 February 2013

Offwell Rangers were another side to sit out a rain affected match day.

Gary Osbourne is mindful of the build-up of matches to come, but is not overly concerned, especially after securing the services of Lewis Couch and Ben Ashford from Axminster Town.

Osbourne says: “I also hope to have a third new face with us before this weekends match and that means we have a squad which will cope comfortably with any hectic schedule. Of more immediate concern is to simply get games played! Since I took over in early November we have managed to play just five league games!”

On Saturday Rangers travel to University.

Osbourne says: “Getting a result is vital. We need the points to stay away from the drop zone. I am confident we will be all right. The new faces will increase competition for places and that’s healthy in any team.”
