Offwell Rangers claimed a superb victory to give their Fresha League Division Seven promotion hopes a massive boost with a single goal win at home to table-topping Central.

The game did not see a goal in the first-half and, with Rangers boosted by the return

of regular glovesman Ben Kayes, they had a commanding – and vocal – influence

across the back line.

After the break Rangers created a couple of chances before a sweet 18-yard strike from Darren Whitmarsh saw the visitors take away all three points.
