Two Aiden Reilly goals either side of a Dylan Brown strike were enough to see Rangers Supporters Association defeat Carbrain Boys Club and claim Open Cup glory.
A Lee Whitmore penalty had briefly given Carbrain hope, but Reilly’s second capped a deserved victory for Rangers and ensured the trophy would be making its way to Glasgow.
Rangers looked the more dangerous of the teams from the first whistle, with Brown in particular causing the Carbrain defence all kinds of problems down the left side. In fact, it was another run of his that created the opening goal - driving at the opposition, he skipped past a number of Carbrain defenders before playing the ball to Reilly 15 yards from goal. Taking a moment to compose himself, he drove the ball low past Dan Stewart in the Carbrain net to give Rangers a deserved lead.
And one became two not long after as Brown, again driving inside from the left, smashed home a left-footed shot across the keeper and into the far corner at a period of the match when it looked as if Rangers could run away with it.
To their credit though, Carbrain did not let their heads drop and managed to create a number of half chances in the latter stages of the first half. Lee Whitmore in particular was a constant threat, fizzing a shot across the face of goal at one point and firing just over from a free kick at another.
