Deeping Rangers welcome Eastwood to the United Counties League Premier Division North


Manager Daniel French has praised the character of his Deeping Rangers players as they look to maintain their fine form on Saturday.

The Clarets have won five of their last six games in the United Counties League Premier Division North with their only loss to unbeaten leaders Long Eaton.

They are in action at Haydon Whitham Stadium on Saturday when 14th-placed Eastwood is the visitor with Rangers looking to build on last weekend’s solid 2-1 away success at Newark.

French said: “Away wins at this level aren’t easy to come by, especially in the conditions last Saturday and on a 3G surface that we’re not used to, so I couldn’t be happier than we have now taken 15 points from the last 18.

“It was really nice because it was another game where we came from behind to win the game.

“When we first conceded in September and October we were dead and buried, so now we’re at a point where we don’t just expect to score a goal and win 1-0.

“We are capable of scoring two or three goals in every game and when we fall behind we have shown the character to come back and get something out of the game.

“Everything is going well so far and Saturday’s victory now sets us up for this weekend.

“It’s a home game against a team below us in the league and a win would allow us to start looking at the top six whereas three months ago we were looking at the bottom six.”

The Clarets also received a sponsorship boost from full-fiber broadband provider Upp.

Currently expanding into Lincolnshire and Norfolk, Upp supports grassroots organizations as part of their longstanding commitment to local communities by encouraging people to get active and join teams.

Kevin Davenport, the club’s commercial director, said: “At Deeping Rangers, our aim is to create an environment where the game of football can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age, gender or ability.

“It’s great to be associated with a company like Upp that shares these values ​​and is passionate about community engagement.”

Upp’s partnership with Deeping stems from the company’s desire to increase its community outreach in the region.

Edward Money, Head of Brand and Communications at Upp, said: “As a company, we are delighted to sponsor Deeping Rangers.

“For us it’s a chance to really get to know the community of The Deepings and an opportunity to see some great football.”
