It’s been an interesting two months at the Rangers to say the least.
The interruption of the 2020 Season due to COVID19 has seen the Club adapted quickly to changing circumstances. Regardless of the setbacks, the Committee and the Coaches have worked hard behind the scene to ensure we’re ready to go by Round 1. Some of the goals we’ve kicked includes;
- Starting the refurbishment of the equipment shed. Massive thank you to Adam Raven, Luke Hylton, Austin Brandon, Andrew Richards and Brenton Howe.
- Selling our new Nike polo to members. These are still available at training ($50 that go towards your Subs).
- Recruiting more players; adding a healthy competition for spots in the First and Reserve teams.
- Conducting our first ever online Club meeting via Zoom.
- Hearing from our sponsors Blackfish Finance and Magain Real Estate.
