New kit and a cup win.

Markfield Rangers Oldboys first game in their new kit was a tough Cup away game to Shortlands FC who are division above them.

Markfield started strong going 3-0 up in the first 20 minutes and the game looked to be over.  However, Shortlands FC scored 2 quick goals before the half time whistle and an early goal in the second half brought the game to 3-3.

The rest of the second half was a tough fought battle with some excellent defending from Markfield.  With only 10 minutes’ remaining, AC Valves Sales Engineer Harry Flint appeared at the back post following a corner and scored from a header. Winning the game for Markfield and winning the hearts of the crowd in the process.

Markfield through to the next round of the cup in their lucky new shirts.
