Northern Rangers met Olympia in the final round of the Victory League in a third Vs fourth fixture. Rangers needed the win to take third place, while Olympia needed just a draw to ensure they stayed put.

Tim Lunnon and Dane Hudson had pretty much a full list to pick from, and Adam Edwards came back into the starting eleven, with Tuma moving to the bench and Hingston went back to centre back.

The game was a close tussle all day, with few chances, Olympia opened the scoring from a miss clearance from defense, and Warren Wadawu controlled, drove at goal and struck over the top of Pooley to open proceedings.
