With the first team still chasing a league win, six games into the season, coach Craig Farrimond is to step aside with Wes Rogers taking over the reins. Wes, who’ll continue coaching the U15s aswell, worked with Keith Brennan when he coached Rangers back in 2010 and has experience as part of the coaching set up at Swinton Lions. He’ll be assisted by another former coach in Emmerson Jackman and former player Ian Sinfield. Danny Attersall and Phil Wood continuing to take the seconds.
Club Chairman, Shane Wilson, said; “We welcome Wes into the coaching role and he’s more than qualified to do the job. The lads needs to get behind him now and show him the level of commitment that’s he’s going to need from them.”
Faz (pictured) has been part of the coaching team at Rangers for four seasons, doing the job on his own for the last two. Shane said; “I’d like to pay tribute to what Faz has contributed to the club since he came here. We’re more than grateful for his commitment during his years in the role. People don’t appreciate how big a job it is and the time it takes.”
On the pitch there’s been little joy for the first team with the defeats leaving them at the bottom of the National Conference Division 2. They haven’t been helped by the fact that every game they’ve played so far has been away due to a variety of reasons. They’re in action away again this Saturday, May 5th, against West Bowling.
