Offwell Rangers chalked up a sixth success in 11 Fresha League Division Seven outings with a 4-0 win at Colyton.

Three goals in a dominant first 45 minutes meant that Ranger had the job all but done by half-time.

In the second half, with the job seemingly done, there was a ‘stepping off of the gas’, and just one further goal was added in what became a very comfortable afternoon fro manager Scott Phillips and his men

Ben Fullick scored a double and the other goals came from Steve Curry – that takes Curry to 10 for the season so far - and Dean Sluman.

Phillips said: We really did play some all on what was a difficult pitch given the pre-match weather and indeed the weather we played in. The surface deteriorated badly – and quickly - in the second half and that was a factor I feel, in us not adding to the three first half goals, aside form the one we got. I am pleased with another clean sheer and the fact that in the conditions we took out chances well. I can say I am very happy with how the team are playing right now!”

Match sponsors, Deer Park Hotel, opted for the impressive Sam Farmer as their Man of the Match.

The victory means Scott Phillips’ men are now fourth in the table and sit just three points shy of leaders Pinhoe.

On Saturday (December 5), Rangers host Seaton Town Reserves looking to register a third home league win of the season. The game kicks-off at 2.15pm
