Rangers Soccer Schools are delighted to announce a partnership with Lakewood Soccer Club from Canada.

The agreement will see young players from the Saskatoon outfit coming across to experience training programmes at Rangers’ facilities.

The partnership will enhance player development as groups train under the guidance and leadership of the Academy staff at Rangers Football Club.

Lewis Oteruelo from Lakewood Soccer Club said: “We are ecstatic to have this arrangement with Rangers Soccer Schools confirmed. We are in the process of planning trips where we will send players and teams to Scotland for academy training and high level exhibition games.

“I believe strongly this partnership sets the stage to offer opportunities for our athletes to experience soccer beyond the borders of our city, province and country. It’s an opportunity for us and our players to be part of an environment where soccer is the culture.”

Gary Gibson, Rangers Soccer Schools Manager, commented: “We are delighted that we will be working with Lakewood Soccer Club from Saskatoon in Canada. We started discussions when I was across at the NARSA convention in Calgary and since then I have been impressed with the vision for their club.

“Through this partnership we will assist them to grow over the coming years, our staff  are over delivering a camp at the moment and they have been very impressed with the players and facilities so this is just a starting point.

“The next stage will be Lakewood players coming across to experience an elite environment at Rangers Football Club along with seeing some of Scotland’s historic landmarks.”

The agreement is another sign of the club’s continued progression in North America through collaboration with football organisations that are eager to develop their club and players.
