Stafford Rangers Football Club invite you to apply for the vital role of Football Secretary. Reporting to the Director of Football, the Football Secretary is responsible for advising the Board of Directors and club officials on all football matters.
Whilst the role is primarily concerned with the first team the successful applicant will also be expected to provide support to the Youth and Development squads. The role is unpaid but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. The role will take up to 20 hours per week so the successful applicant will need the capacity to commit to this challenging position.
The Football Secretary will need to communicate with the FA, League and County FA to ensure compliance with rules, deadlines and regulations. Applicants will need excellent communication skills and be organised to be able to juggle a wide variety of tasks from preparing player documentation in all its many areas through to match day reporting and entering and administrating competitions.
Ideally we are looking for someone with experience in this role and knowledge of football at Step 4 and upwards but will also consider and welcome applications from people with the necessary skill sets to be able to receive training and get up and running quickly.
In the first instance all applications should be made by e mail to the Director of Football Andy Fearn at email@example.com
This vacancy results from our current Football Secretary Peter Lowe standing down after 6 years due to family and professional commitments.
Stafford Rangers would like to publicly thank Peter for the huge efforts he has made to drive the club forward with his professionalism, knowledge and hard work. His enthusiasm for the game and experience have been invaluable and it has been a pleasure to work with him. All at the club wish him and his family all the very best for the future.
Whilst we are still a while away from watching competitive football at Marston Road we are opening the ground on the 17th and 18th April for fans to be able to come down and have a drink outside.
The Social Club and its bars will remain closed but we will be opening a Beer Garden with table service for groups of 6 at tables which will be set up outside the area behind the Goal outside the Chairman’s Suite (weather permitting) and serving drinks from the Chairman’s Suite directly to your table.
No reservations are required but please note that drinks will have to be consumed at your table and you will not be able to sit in the stand.
It’s time for all our fans to come home and leave those Zoom calls behind, forget about those home chores and talk football, looking out onto the hallowed turf.
Swap stories of your best football memories, best match, favourite players and chat about the forthcoming 21/22 season with your football family.
It’s been a long time coming but we will be opening the Beer Garden, Kick off at 12.00 until 7.00 pm on both Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th April on a trial basis. The welcome will be warm and the beer cold and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
Because we can only accommodate people outside to comply with Covid-19 restrictions both days will be only possible if the weather forecast is half decent and if we do have to cancel we will put a post on our website to advise on Thursday 15th April.
If this is successful we will do it again so we ask all fans to be sensible and respect the guidelines that are in place.
Put the date in your diary, it’s time to come home to your football club.
