Shedend Update

A request has been submitted to purchase two new Boro flags which would make an ideal backdrop for the opening of the new Shedend Stand on Saturday 15th December. The average cost for a 12’ x 6’ bespoke flag is approx £160.00, so in an ideal world £320.00 is required. Mark White and Andy Tolfree have offered their services to raise the funds required to purchase the new flags. Because time is a factor with the new Shedend hopefully being opened in less than 2 months, and flag orders needing to be placed sooner rather than later, Mark and Andy will be positioned just beyond the turnstiles, buckets in hand, so whatever you can donate will be gratefully received.

Please look out for the buckets (bucket flyer attached) on Saturday and donate what you can, it all helps.

News from the Shedend Team

News from the Shedend Team

The Shed End team and our main contractor have attended a meeting with the Stafford Rangers Board of Directors this evening and delivered our proposals to reinstate the Shed using the former footprint.

The Directors have requested that a couple of assurances are given in writing to protect the club which we fully accept and understand. We are confident that these assurances will be met by the end of this week.

The Board have accepted our proposals in principle and have asked us to thank everyone who has had any involvement in getting the project to where it is today.

We will be instructing our contractor formally tomorrow morning and providing that the fixed price is within budget, the build will commence on Monday 3rd December 2018 and be handed over to us on Friday 14th December 2018. All being well, we will formally open The Shed at our home fixture against Hednesford on Saturday 15th December.

So, if you have any outstanding pledges or offers of sponsorship, now is the time to help. We have donor to help us but any extra would be very welcome, for any extras needed.

It’s coming home.
Up the Boro.
