The Tony Weston, 18, hattrick brought his stunning scoring tally for the season in the division to 19 – one more than previous top scorer Blair Henderson of Spartans.
Charlie McCann – who has trained with the first team recently – brought his own tally to 9 from midfield which is an impressive return for the 19-year-old.
The other two goals were scored by Chris McKee and Robbie Ure with the result leaving the Rangers B team 3rd in the Scottish Lowland League, 13 points off leaders Bonnyrigg Rose with a game in hand.
Rangers fans following B stars Charlie McCann and Tony Weston closely
The scoring performances of the two will do little to dampen Rangers fan interest in the youngsters who are amongst those who’ve made the biggest impression on the club’s B side this season.
Charlie McCann joined Rangers in the summer from the Man Utd Academy and has been very impressive from midfield for the youngsters.
Rangers will have an eye on the goalscoring midfielder’s performances and depending on how the season progresses it’ll be interesting to see if he can make the breakthrough under Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Tony Weston has been at Ibrox a little longer, the Liverpool-born striker having joined from Blackpool in the summer of last season and going on to make a big impression in the youth set-up.
The striker’s goal return speaks for itself and similarly to Charlie McCann, it’ll be interesting to see if he can make his first appearances for the Gers this season.
The Lowland League experiment continues to reap benefits for the Young Gers who have enjoyed a full season of football so far and are still very much in with an outside shout of winning the division.
Rangers have already proven this season that when required the club’s youngsters will at least be included in the squad amid injuries and rotation.
