ANYONE else still defrosting from the weekend's game? My hands and feet were still cold when I got home, writes Rangers' commercial manager Stuart Maun.

It certainly was a fresh one on Saturday. A proper cold, wet and miserable winter's day and the performance on the pitch didn't really cheer things up unfortunately.

Not the perfect start to February, and not the most ideal of birthday presents for me as I celebrated my 21st (ish) birthday….

A special mention must go out to those that braved the cold, and in particular the wonderful guest ball boys (the Penkridge under 9s) who all did a sterling job even in the poor weather conditions.

A huge thank you must also go to Dave our groundsman who has managed to get every game on this season so far. The pitch looked remarkable considering all the rain that had fallen on the days before the match.

Thanks to those fans that also stayed behind after the game on Saturday in the social club to ask questions and listen to feedback from manager, Graham Heathcote. I hope everyone felt the event was beneficial. The date was set by Graham, and unfortunately I had already made plans for the evening as had Mike (Hughes) , and chairman Rod Woodward was on holiday. Graham was keen to get the evening on at the earliest opportunity when most fans would be at Marston Road, and knew that Jon Downing and Ken Hunt would be there to support him.

I hope that everyone making the trip to Gigg Lane (FC United) this weekend have a great day out. Hopefully we can do the unthinkable and come back with all three points, which would complete a league double over them this season.

As always, thanks to Mark Whittaker who arranges the away supporters travel each week. Hopefully there will be a few Boro fans at the ground this weekend. We have normally travelled in good numbers to this fixture.

Finally, I heard last weekend that Paul Tittensor has spoken to members of the Board and has decided to step down from his role as health and safety officer at SRFC.

Paul has been involved at the club for many years, and I personally would like to thank him for everything he has done for Rangers.

Hopefully he will be back at the ground very soon to enjoy a match, without having to watch everything that is going on off the pitch. At least you can now enjoy a lie-in, Paul, on Saturday morning, rather than the 6am weekend starts at Marston Road. Thanks again Paul.

As always, thank you for your continued support. Up the Boro.
