Debut striker Drummy, signed from local rivals Asfordby, had the final say in a 1-0 victory.

Rangers started strongly, pressing Leicester at every opportunity and denying them any time on the ball.

With Moule bossing midfield, Keenan tore down the left and played in Manning and Drummy time after time.

Lovely play between Keenan and Manning played in Drummy whose first-time shot flew just wide, to give a warning sign to the home defence.

Mowbray kept attacking and this time player-of-the-match Drummy made no mistake, firing the visitors ahead with a great shot from the edge of the box after more good work from Keenan and Manning.

Baker made way for Henley O’Sullivan after a strong performance on the right, and Drummy was replaced by Townsend who both got stuck into the game.

With the reliable back three of Cook-Snow, captain Farrow, and McDaid the result rarely looked in doubt.

Biggadyke came on late on to bolster the defence as Rangers looked to see out the game, but they were given a late scare when keeper Scallon was faced one-on-one with the home striker.

She stormed out and made an amazing low save to cement a great opening day win.

Next up is newly-promoted Rugby at home on Sunday.

Rangers: Scallon, McDaid, Farrow (c), Cook-Snow, Keenan, Moule, Baker, Manning, Drummy, Townsend, Henley O’Sullivan, Biggadyke.
