Mountain Rangers to contest Southern Stream playoffs

20 July 2016 | Short News

Mountain Rangers Football Club (FC) from Rosh Pinah will represent the //Kharas Region at the Southern Stream First Division (SSFD) playoffs after they won the //Kharas Second Division on Sunday.
They beat Orange Rangers (FC) of Noordoewer in a round-robin playoff that started in Lüderitz on Saturday.
Mountain Rangers defeated Orange Rangers 2-0 on Saturday and 5-1 on Sunday to book their place in the SSFD playoffs scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday in Gobabis, Omaheke Region.
Manager of Mountain Rangers Klaas Flowerinho Blom (not the Orlando Pirates player) told Nampa recently their dream came true.
‘Happy Green’, as they are affectionately known by their supporters, was established in 1997 in Rosh Pinah and only used to play tournaments in and around the //Kharas Region.
They registered for the //Kharas Coastal Stream in 2009 and won the Coastal Streams on six occasions.
“Every time, we failed at the last hurdle to go through for the national playoffs. Finally the hard work has paid off and we will go to Gobabis fired up,” said Blom.
Mountain Rangers are a mixture of youth and experience.
It has former national team and Tigers FC player Edward ‘Fadiga’ Asino and former Eleven Arrows FC player Wakka Jossop on board.
“They bring much-needed experience to our team, complimented by the evergreen Ivan Vries. I don’t see why we cannot win the playoffs and fight to be promoted to the Namibia Premier League (NPL).
“We want to be the first team in
over 10 years to bring the NPL to the //Kharas Region and more specifically, the south. It’s about time.”

The following teams will represent their respective regions at the playoffs as winners of their regional leagues.
