END OF AN ERA -BARBARA RAWLINSON RETIRES

26.09.17

Barbara, Gareth and SteveLast Saturday's home game against Waterhead Warriors saw Barbara Rawlinson's last home game before she retires from )pen Age team manager.  Barbara has been a volunteer at Stanley Rangers for 28 years. She became involved with Stanley when her son Gareth joined as a junior. It was especially nostalgic as the linesman Steve was actually a coach at Stanley and coached Gareth and was there for his first ever game - little did they know he would also be at Barbara's last home game as Open Age team manager. In 2007 Barbara was awarded Secretary of the Year in the National C9nference League Roll of Honour.
We would like to thank Barbara for all her support and hard work she has given to Stanley Rangers over the years and wish her a very happy retirement

He was an England Schools international, and captained the England Academy side to a series win over their Australian counterparts in 2010.
