There is a grand final to be played tomorrow

Its time to take a step back in time and cover a game played at 12:30 tomorrow at Shark Park.
This game has been building up since the first round of leg three.

Somerset Sharks V Northern Rangers in NPL1
Both teams have had great years and been able to shake all contenders off apart from each other. The Rangers hold the spoon over the Sharks this year beating them 5-1 with Somerset playing with 9 men then beating them 3-2 at Ranger land.
Somerset have been dominant in front of goals this year scoring a massive 87 goals to date and on the other hand the Rangers have had the best defence only letting 21 past the keeper so this has a classic game written all over it.
Ground conditions may play factor tomorrow as the rain has not eased for 12 hours and looks to continue well into today(Friday). The Sharks have kept of the main pitch to make sure it is playable Saturday. The Rangers are a very controlled team and love the quick one-two triangle work and this may default their system if the ground is bad.

Marshall Pooley has gone from the "ROCK" in the sticks to the general on the feild, He has had an outstanding year as the standalone striker and will need to be watched very closely by the ever capable Elliot Stewart.
The one thing i do admire with the Rangers set up is their midfield. Sometimes i am n awe watching their quick one-two triangle work and the ever so rough midfield of Somerset will need to close this down to stop the penetration to the forward line.

Somerset have rotated a few players this year and with every one availiable for selection will have Coach Casey Eaves watering at the mouth on who he can selecct, After seeing both teams named last night it is great to see both clubs have NOT stacked thier sides to try and get across the line.
This could be the first ever premiership for the Sharks NPL1 side or another great ride for the Rangers to wrap up another title.
Which ever way this game goes its sure to be a cracker.

Somerset are back to back premiers and final champions

Today's game was played in perfect conditions and one may have thought summer had come early. With the sun out and no wind Somerset kicked with the sun in the first half.
The game started pretty evenly and riverside playing a controlled passing game to somersets more direct play.
The more direct play proving more effect with somerset missing three easy goals at the 15, 19 and 20 minute mark with Smith, kyrone Johnson and James Nettelton missing easy goals which would have given somerset and early buffer.
A corner by somerset saw a flick to the top of the box seeing billy Mathews blast one home from the edge of the box into the top of the corner. Not long after jimmy (the great white buffalo) Nettelton made it 2-0.
Riverside had a great chance but a fine block then a big mitt from Steven Treloar prevented Riverside making it 2-1.
2-0 half time.
After the break somerset come out controlling the game and a brace to the buffalo and a goal right on the whistle by young gun Matty Jordan made it 4-0.
