We’re now well into our second month of the Covid-19 lockdown and the surreal nature of the new normal is hard to get used to, isn’t it. In these unprecedented times, it seems we’ve suddenly realised that many people our society takes for granted are pretty extraordinary as they risk their own health to protect others.
In our Rangers family, we have lots who are doing their bit and we want to pay tribute to them here...
KATE JAMES, whose sons Jacob and Joshua are in our U7s and tots, is an Intensive Care Nurse at The Royal Oldham Hospital while RACHAEL WHALEY, mum of U8s player Olly, is a nurse in the A&E department. FIONA ASHTON, mum of U16s player Finley, is a nurse in Stockport (all pictured above). From our U13s, DAMIAN and LUCY BATES, mum and dad of Harry, work in A&E and intensive care at The Royal Bolton hospital.
Working in adult social care we KELLY FITZGERALD whose son Vinny is U15s, HELEN LEE, mum of Jacob from our u12s, and HELEN GRAHAM, whose son Mackenzie is also U12s (all pictured above) are all caring for vulnerable adults in care homes or the community, as is IAN HULSE, whose sons Ethan and Lewis are in the U18s. Their mum KELLY works in the pathology department at The Royal Oldham Hospital.
We hope we haven’t missed anyone out.
We also know our club also has many members of the police, fire, education and children's care other important jobs. Keep up the good work!
