The under-16s will take on Co. Armagh at the Riada Stadium in Ballymoney on Monday at 7 pm, Bracknell Town at the Showgrounds in Coleraine on Tuesday, Global Premier Soccer at Scroggy Road, Limavady at 7.30pm on Wednesday – with the final game also being broadcast live.

Gers Academy coach Peter Lovenkrands thinks that facing Man United will be a good test for the Development squad and hopes they can build on the work done in recent seasons.
“If we build on what we have been doing so far and also what we have been doing over the last couple of years, we have been getting great results playing in Europe against big teams it is a good test for us and I think it something that the boys will really be looking forward to and be up for,” Lovenkrands told Rangers official website.
