EVEN though the result on Saturday was irrespective as our fate had already been sealed the week before, the lads put in a good shift versus Kings Lynn, writes Stafford Rangers commercial manager Stuart Maun (pictured).
Unfortunately a late single goal was enough to sink Rangers. Thank you to those that attended, Rangers have still managed to stay in the top five of league attendances this season, a great achievement considering our league position and results this term.
It was great to also have Stephen Peers and his family with us on Saturday. Stephen is a lifelong fan who celebrated his 21st birthday on Saturday. He chose the man of the match (Joe Ballinger) and presented the award at the end of the game too.
We also had a collection for Stafford Hospital which raised plenty of cash for the charity so thank you for the generosity.
There have certainly been some changes announced over the last couple of weeks that will definitely have an effect in the way in which the club is run next season. Relegation and a number of resignations have seen great like-minded fans club together to see what they can offer the club as a collective.
I know I have tried to rally people round in the past, and it always seems to be the same few that help out so to get some fresh faces on board would be good. I wish everyone all the best with their committees, which I am sure will benefit Rangers in the long term.
This weekend we are at home again against our friends from Ashton United. It is the penultimate home game of the season so it would be good to see you at Marston Road.
We will be welcoming John Bromley and his guests from Bromley Properties as the exclusive sponsor this weekend. John has supported Rangers in many ways, as a fan and a sponsor, and we are truly grateful for his support.
Don't forget you can also vote for your player of the season, which will be presented to the winner on Easter Monday (the last home game of the season) in front of the fans on the day.
Next week will be my final article in the paper before I step down at the end of the campaign.
I hope that someone continues to give valuable weekly updates as the feedback I have received has always been very positive.
I really appreciate the media allowing me to utilise the column each week.
See you all on Saturday. Up the Boro.
