Peter shows he has the X-Factor!

GARETH Scott praised the professionalism and work rate of his players following a battling draw away to Banbridge Town on Saturday.

A dogged effort by Glebe looked set to be awarded with all three points on Saturday however a goal for the hosts in the dying minutes saw the teams share the spoils.

Peter Kennoway - a dead ringer for John McElderry, the Geordie star of the hit TV show X-Factor - hit the right note for Rangers when he slotted home to put them into the lead.

And Tommy Elder - who Scott described as “terrific” on the day - was unlucky not to put the game to bed when his shot rebounded off an upright ten minutes from the end.

Regarding on-song Kennoway’s goal, Scott said:

“Peter aka Joe McElderry took his goal well and I think may have led the singing on the bus home!

“If Joe is ever looking a body double, Peter is the man for the job.

“I wasn’t here when the X-Factor was on TV but I’d like to know where Peter was at the time!”

Scott told Times Sport he was delighted with the response of the team following last week’s setback at home to Armagh City.

“I think it was a big point gained,” he said.

“Our work rate, discipline and professionalism on the day is just what is expected at Glebe Rangers.

“It was of the highest standard.

“I felt we didn’t come anywhere near the standard expected against Armagh and we can’t accept that here.

“I asked for a response and we went to Banbridge and did a professional job.

“I was delighted with how we applied ourselves and if we keep doing that we will pick up a lot more points this season.

“The lads have got a real hunger to do well for Glebe Rangers and for each other.

“In the Championship the players are either good enough to perform in it or not and our players have shown without a shadow of a doubt they are good enough to perform at this level.”

Scott was also delighted with the away support for the game.

“We are making great progress and just have to keep the standard up between now and the end of the season.”
