Rangers are still top of Spartan South Midlands Premier Division on 54 points with games in hand over the chasing pack of New Salamis on 52, Hadley on 50 and Leighton Town on 45 points.

After their unbeaten record of 52 league games came to an end earlier this month, the management team of Mark Eaton and his assistant Alex Sethi are optimistic that Rangers can start another good run, hoping to achieve promotion to the Southern League Division One Central (Step 4).

With ground improvements ongoing at Rangers BEP Stadium and attendances up by 54% from last season, Risborough are now averaging 154 for home games at Horsenden Lane.
