The Macleay Valley Rangers U14s side will face Wauchope in the grand final for the third straight year this Saturday.

The two sides have split the results, with the Rangers claiming the premiership last year while Wauchope knocked off the Rangers in the U12s grand final despite Macleay Valley entering the decider undefeated.

The Rangers will be hoping to turn the tables on Wauchope, who haven’t lost a game in 2017.

“Wauchope have a couple of quality players but we are strong across the park,” Rangers coach Jason Coleman said.

“If we work together as a team, as we have all year, I know we can win.”

Rangers faced Wauchope twice in the regular season, losing by a single goal on both occasions.

However, Rangers will enter the grand final on the back of two strong victories.

They defeated the Port United Dragons 5-1 before defeating the Port United Crocs 2-1 in the preliminary final.

“It has been a strong rivalry between us and Wauchope over the past couple of years, we always know we are faced with a battle when we come up against them,” Coleman said.

The Rangers finished the regular season in third position and the match will kick off at Eden St at 10.30am.
