Rangers Women today start their league season at home today to Glasgow Women. The team, unbeaten and champions from last season, will look to start strongly against the newly promoted Glasgow women side. Much changed from last season, our visitors will be in for a tough test in a game Rangers are strong favourites for.
Rangers will try to start hard and fast, with a few changes to last season they will look to ensure the standard of last season does not slip. Of course one big change, we are here at Broadwood stadium for this season as Rangers look to grow the Women’s side.
Rangers captained by Katherine Hill have no less than four new signings in the side and youngster MacLean remains the brightest hope in the side. The youngster turned down top English sides, including the Manchester clubs, so she is the one to watch.
Rangers line up – Fife, Docherty, Hill, Davison, Middag, Orschmann, McCoy, McLauchlan, Cornet, Danielsson and MacLean
Subs – Esson, Hay, Howat, Arnot, McLeary, Watson
Good luck Rangers
