Preview – Rd1 2018 v St Albans

//Preview – Rd1 2018 v St Albans

The long summer wait is over and football returns to Epping Stadium for the first time in 2018.

A new look Ranges squad will take on new demoted St Albans Saints in what is shaping to be an intriguing contest on Saturday afternoon. Whilst the Saints have much to prove this season that their time here will be a short one, the Ranges have the same if not more on the line after big movements in both players and coaches in the off season.

New senior coach Gianfranco Impellizzeri will “officially” take his new look squad into action this weekend after crossing over from Dandenong Thunder. Impellizzeri has identified key areas that needed improvement in the Ranges this season and has completed the signings needed to hopefully take squad to the next level. An important signing  Impellizzeri has made is key defender and ex Melbourne Heart captain Simon Colosimo to fill the void left by Naum Sekolovski departing to Preston Lions.

With this intriguing content looming, it will be one not to miss this Saturday.
