angers will once more take part in the Hong Kong Soccer Sevens and will be aiming to go one step further than a year ago when they lost to Newcastle United in the final.
The Gers’ participation was confirmed earlier today by the organisers, with the competition taking place between May 17 and 19.

Jamie Barjonas, Stephen Kelly, Liam Burt, Kyle Bradley and Jordan Houston were all part of the side last year – with all having played first-team football for the Gers.
Rangers have finished as runners-up three times now, 2009, 2010 and 2018, and will be keen to lift the trophy in its 20th anniversary year.

Newcastle, Fulham, Wolves, West Ham and Brighton are among the sixteen clubs also taking part next month and it will be a fantastic challenge for the young Gers to round off their season.
There’s also a 10-team Masters tournament that runs alongside the main cup and it’s likely there will also be a Rangers team involved in that again.

Before they head to Hong Kong though, the Gers youngsters will have a busy few weeks to come with the culmination of the reserve league as well as Scottish Youth Cup and Glasgow Cup finals.
Winning the prestigious Hong Kong Soccer Sevens would be the perfect end to the season for the Academy side.
