STANLEY RANGERS WITHDRAW FROM THE NCL

29.06.18

It is with regret that Stanley Rangers have taken the decision to withdraw from the National Conference League with immediate effect and the Committee have sent the following statement:

"It's not been an easy decision, but we have decided as a club, coaching staff and players to withdraw from the National Conference League. We are struggling with injuries and other commitments to put a competitive team in place. We have a young and talented team that is lacking confidence and experience to compete within the NCL at this moment in time and are looking to enter the Yorkshire Men's League for the next couple of seasons to rebuild as a squad and club, with the end aim to re-enter the NCL. We would like to thank the league and the clubs we have played against within our time in the conference for their hospitality over the years."

Chairman of the NCL Trevor Hunt has written to the Committee at Stanley Rangers, saying:

"I am most desperately sorry that Stanley Rangers feel they have to take this course of action. Whatever course of action you now pursue and wherever you play your rugby we sincerely wish you the very best of luck and look forward to hearing from you in the future. Certainly Stanley Rangers and their committee have been a credit to the NCL in their time as members, and it is particularly sad when one of our more established clubs feel they have to take this action."

As a result of this withdrawal, as per competition rules, Stanley Rangers' remaining games will be awarded to their opponents with a score of 10 to 48 for their home games and 63 to 9 for their away games.

STANLEY RANGERS MASCOT IN TRINITY TEAM PHOTO

19.01.18

Wakefield Trinity teamIt was a great morning at the Sponsors Breakfast held recently at Wakefield Trinity. Stanley Rangers are one of the Ambassador clubs with Trinity and one of the Stanley Rangers junior players won the community prize draw to be the mascot in the official team photo. She is featured in the centre of the photo. The club’s Ambassador Scheme aims to build relationships with community clubs in the Wakefield district to get more children involved in rugby league, and potentially inspire the next generation of Trinity players. Having been nearly two years in the planning, the scheme, which focuses on children between the U7’s and U11’s age groups, got the go ahead in December 2015, and has since seen two roadshow workshops held in 2016 and 2017 which saw over 400 children from six junior rugby clubs in the area attend.
