FC RANGERS booked their first final appearance for 12 years as they beat Welwyn Garden Sunday 3-2 to reach the WHFSL Premier League Cup Final.

Welwyn Garden failed to overcome a resolute Rangers side in Sunday's semi-final played at King George V Playing Fields.

FC Rangers played against the driving wind in the first half, which saw Sunday enjoy more of the possession.

A mistake from the Rangers defence proved costly as it allowed an opponent time and space for a well-taken goal.

The second half saw FC Rangers with the wind advantage and it was no surprise when Kingston Davis equalised with a powerful drive from the edge of the box.

This was soon followed by another goal. Midfielder Adam Fisher provided the through ball for striker Mark Rogers to beat the keeper from 15 yards.

Rogers turned provider for the third with a close-range finish from Marvin Bates.

Sunday pulled a goal back themselves to set up a tense last 10 minutes, but Rangers held out to reach their first final in 12 years.
