3rd Team

Welcome to the 3rd Team homepage! 

Welcome to the homepage of Carnforth Rangers 3rd team (aka The ‘A’ Team)! The side, managed by former Rangers player Vernon Middleton, form a key part of the clubs development system in the senior setup. The side play their home games at Carnforth High School. Historically, the side has always promoted talent from the youth sides at the club, and from other local areas, giving them the necessary game time to continue their footballing development. The team were promoted into the Westmorland Football League Division 3 after being crowned Division 4 champions, and Austin Wren Cup Runners Up, in the 2022/23 season! This page will be updated throughout 2023/24 as the squad take on new challenges in Division 3 of the Westmorland Football League!
