Watch out Accy Stanley, here come Deeping Rangers

Deeping Rangers are on the giant-killing FA Cup glory trail...

OK, maybe that's over-egging it, but Deeping have achieved two wins in a row in the FA Cup for the first time ever.

Having already beaten Lincoln Moorlands away in an August best of nine goals thriller, our local heroes yesterday took on last season's FA Vase winners Nantwich Town.

They came home with a 2-1 win, with goals from Rangers captain Lee Ellison and debutant Matson (so it says on the Rangers website)

All of which means that Deeping Rangers have now earned a place in the Ist qualifying round proper. (so they've qualified to get into the qualifying rounds!)

Anyway, here's wishing Deeping Rangers best of luck for another FA Cup Victory at Rugby (Ed: Rugby? isn't that the other shaped balls?) on Saturday, 16th September.

As you can probably tell, I'm not a huge football fan. But I was honoured to be invited as a guest of Deeping Rangers at their Outgang Road ground for the opening match of last season.

Apparently, it was a game of two halves, with much end-to-end play!

Remember, when Deeping Rangers reach Wembley (if the new stadium is ever finished), you read it here first!

As the scouse lad on the milk advert says: "Accrington Stanley! Who are they?"
