Your Club needs YOU!!

In preparation for the new Season many jobs have been started within the ground to ensure the club looks as good as it can off the pitch for the forthcoming campaign.

A working party day has also now been organised for Saturday 8th May and we invite fans to come down and help.

Mark, Den, Ben and Shaun will be down at the ground between 10am to 5pm and will be leading the charge to tidy Marston Road and will manage and coordinate the day.

The priority for the first weekend will be to Yellow paint all Steps to ensure we comply with safety regulations. The objective is to clean all areas of the ground and get rid of all the rubbish into Skips, also strim all weeds. We would ask anyone who wishes to help to bring any garden tools and paint brushes they have as our own supplies are limited.

The Beer Garden will be open during the day so you will be able to buy much needed refreshment!

This is exactly what non-league football is all about, playing a part!

Football Secretary Opportunity

Football Secretary Opportunity

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 andy.fearn@staffordrangersfc.co.uk

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.

It’s Time to come Home

It’s Time to come Home

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.

ERIC’S QUIZ/PREDICTIONS FUND RAISER RESULTS

Eric Robins update on results.

I am now able to announce the result of my latest fund raising project as the 2020/21 season has been officially terminated. However, before I announce the result I would like to thank the 33 entrants and 27 donors who, at £5 each, enabled me to raise £300 for the club. Thanks also to John Bromley for his donation of £150 to the prize fund.

So as you can see I had one outright winner on 16 points and I am pleased to announce the winner has donated the £150 prize back to the club. A very generous gesture, however, they have told me they do not want any publicity and wish to remain anonymous and I respect their wishes. So that is why I have detailed only numbers of entrants and points scored rather than listing names.  However, if any entrants wish to know the score, please contact me for the information.

Thanks again for your support, it is greatly appreciated by myself and the directors.

UP THE BORO!
