Away kit unveiled

Away kit unveiled

Stafford Rangers are delighted to unveil our brand-new away kit for the 2020 season, as worn by defender Jon Moran.


The contemporary new shirt, sponsored by Stan Robinson and Abbey Polymers includes a distinctive hexagonal pattern within the design, and is now available to order from the club’s kit supplier Harlequin Teamwear (Adults £30.00 / Kids £25.00)

Depending on the option you select at the check-out, the pre-ordered away shirts will either be shipped to customers or be ready for collection from the football club in early September, ahead of the season starting.

Harlequin Teamwear have also sponsored the first team training kit this season, which features a black and grey camouflage pattern, as modelled by midfielder Alex Ray Harvey. This is also available for supporters to order (Adults £27.50 / Kids £22.50) and will be available in early September too. Both new shirts will be available in the club shop once the season gets underway in limited numbers, but pre-order now to save any disappointment in getting your size from the start of the season.

Thank you to everyone who has ordered their new home shirts already following the fan’s vote for the club’s new strip, by means of an update those who have pre-ordered will receive their shirts in mid-to-late August.

Fans who have paid for their order to be shipped will get an email notification from Harlequin Teamwear when your shirt has been dispatched, and for those who have selected to collect from the football club an announcement on collection opportunities will be made nearer the time.

We can’t wait to see everyone on the terraces wearing their new club colours once the season begins, and it’s been great to hear how many fans across the country and beyond have ordered already!

Lottery members buy Veo Camera

Lottery members buy Veo Camera

Stafford Rangers Lottery scheme has once more proved its value enabling the club to buy into the benefits of football analytics with the purchase of a new Veo automated camera in advance of the new season. It enables the management team to benefit from increased and focussed analysis and development of players, benefitting coaching techniques. It follows the play and will be used by Jody Banim and his team post-match to analyse all aspects of the game and review both tactics and players.

Jody Banim states:

“I think this is a really vital piece of kit and will help as we develop player’s strengths and enable us to review games in detail. I am grateful that all those taking part in the Lottery Scheme have enable us to invest in Veo.”

It is the intention to record all league fixtures specifically those away from home and then show them in the social club ahead of the next home game when the next season starts properly on the 19th September.

All forthcoming pre-season friendlies will be played behind closed doors due to the restrictions in place. Whilst it is the intention to record all games some of these pre- season games, due to their sensitive nature, will not be transmitted.

The club once again thanks everyone involved in the lottery and to find out how you can make a difference please click here.

Jody strengthens squad

Jody strengthens squad

Following this weekend’s double training session, Jody Banim made further positive moves to strengthen his squad.

Joining the Boro are 20 year old striker Mitch Candlin. a lively forward who joined Walsall as a pro in 2017 and has had loan spells with Blackburn Rovers U23, Nuneaton and Alvechurch and joins his home town club after release from The Saddlers with Rangers seeing off interest from other parties.

Joining Mitch is Joe Kenton, a 22 year old attacking wing back who has been a regular in the Welsh League with Newtown AFC since 2017. Joe is another fairly local lad has also seen spells at Wolves and Shrewsbury Town.

Our third addition is 18 year old Tom Carr from Wythenshawe Amateurs. A promising youngster who can play across midfield or up front and tipped as one for the future.
