IT’S been a long time coming but it was certainly worth the wait.

At the 11th time of asking, Wirksworth Colt Rangers U10s gained their first win of the campaign.

They achieved this feat by beating a strong Leabrooks Cougars U10s side 3-0.

The Rangers side was only formed this season, from lads who had moved from other teams to get involved.

The side has found it tough so far this campaign, although the players have kept on battling throughout in search of that all-important first win.

The win has delighted proud supporters of the team.

One of them, Nicola Paine, said: “They’ve not had a lot of luck this season but they’ve kept going and they did so well to get that win so we’re all really pleased for them.”

Rangers battled hard on Sunday morning for the whole of the match.

All three goals came in the second half courtesy of Leo Warburton (two) and Daniel Bunting.

It was difficult to choose an outstanding player as the whole team played above themselves for the whole game but it was a unanimous decision that it should be awarded to the Rangers’ goalkeeper Cameron Maycock who made some excellent saves that boosted his side throughout the game.

Leabrooks pushed Rangers right until the final whistle but the Wirksworth lads managed to keep their nerve to the end and claim the three points.
