Rangers “Teams” Coming to the Soccer 7s!

It’s with great delight that we can announce that Rangers will be sending 2 teams to compete in the HKFC Citibank International Soccer 7s. http://www.hksoccersevens.com/

The Rangers Youth team have been competing in this tournament since 2005 and had been invited once more. With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Club itself we were unsure if they would be coming to compete. Thankfully they are though and everyone here at the Hong Kong RSC look forward to welcoming them back. Tommy Wilson will once again be leading the side and details of the squad can be found on the excellent Soccer 7s website:  http://www.hksoccersevens.com/teams/team/rangers

As an added bonus to Bears in Hong Kong, a team of Rangers veterans will be coming to the 7’s to compete in the Masters section of the tournament and they will represent the Citibank All Stars.  They will be led by John “Bomber” Brown who was the winning coach back in 2008 when the “Rangers Legends” won the Soccer 7s Masters event.

Not all of Bombers squad has been named as yet, but at the moment the squad looks like this: Andy Goram, Lorenzo Amoruso, Marvin Andrews, Scott Nisbet, Neil Murray, Alex Rae, Derek Ferguson & Charlie Miller! 2 more names have still to be added and we will let you know who they are when we do. In the mean time further details on the Citibank All Stars team can be found here: http://www.hksoccersevens.com/teams/masters

The actual tournament will be held from the 18th to the 21st May at the Hong Kong Football Club in Happy Valley and tickets can be bought in advance from HK Ticketing. http://www.hkticketing.com/eng/

With 2 Rangers teams competing in the tournament be sure to get your ticket and get down to the HKFC and show the Rangers players how much we appreciate all of their efforts this season.
