EASTHAM RANGERS alt 1After a period of many years Eastham Rangers JFC was reformed in 2001, under the driving forces of Steve Holmes, Steve Lewin and Iain Kell together with many parent helpers at that time. Starting with an initial membership of 60 children the club based itself on Green Lane playing fields, scouring the neighbourhood for a true home before finally taking up residence on the St Marys school field in Eastham Village. Whilst initially playing in orange shirts and black shorts, a little research into the area found that the colours associated with Eastham Village were blue and yellow, hence todays shirt colours, with our badge being adopted from the emblem of the village, a Stags head.

Since our re-incarnation our membership has grown, and we have teams now representing the club in several local leagues as well as attending tournaments during the summer months up and down the country, playing both mini and junior soccer, 9-a-side, and full 11 a side football.

Our Academy on a Saturday morning is second to none, where boys and girls of all abilities are welcome to play the beautiful game, and our annual tournament is regarded by our peers as simply the best.

The club is currently working towards the FA Charter Status which will provide us with a recognised kite mark, with in time all managers and coaches being FA Level 1 qualified. Whilst we aim to be competitive on the field, this is not to the detriment of our conduct both on and off the pitch, with the club having a reputation for promoting fair play in all matches we play.

The club would not succeeed without the dedicated help of the committee members, and those that give up their time to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for children to play football.

As always the most important people in the club are the footballers, and we are proud to have these children as our members.
