Rangers in promotion battle

FOURTH-PLACED Dewsbury Rangers play their final West Riding County Women’s League Third Division game of the season on Sunday when they go to Crossley Ladies. 

It is a crucial game for Rangers, as they need a win to clinch the runners-up spot and with it a place in the Second Division next season.

With the Second Division finishing with only five teams, Battyeford Belles reserves occupying the bottom spot, there will be some reorganisation in the summer that results in more than two teams being promoted but, as it stands, that runners-up spot is the only guarantee.

Battyeford Belles have long since been cro wned champions of Division One and they can look forward to the challenge of life in the Premier Division next season along with the likes of Ossett Town, Bradford Park Avenue and Brighouse Athletic.
