Geelong Rangers Football Club is an Australian soccer club based in Geelong, Australia. The club currently competes in the Victorian State League Division 2 North-West, the regionalized fifth division of the Australian soccer league system.

History[edit]

Geelong Rangers claimed the 2008 Victorian State League Division 3 championship with 43 points, five points clear of second placed Sydenham Park, and were promoted to the Victorian State League Division 2 for the 2009 season.[1] Upon the club's relegation from the Victorian State League Division 2 North-West to the Victorian State League Division 3 North-West in 2010, the club appointed former South African footballer Dale Harris as the first-team coach.[2][3][4] Rangers finished the 2011 season in bottom place of the Victorian State League Division 3 table and were relegated to Victorian Provisional League Division 1 North-West for the 2012 season.[5] The club debuted in the FFV State Knockout Cup in the 2012 tournament, where Rangers defeated Warrnambool Wolves in a 5–2 home victory in a second round fixture on 17 March.
