We are holding a Football Skills Clinic during the April school holidays from Tuesday 14 April to Thursday 16 April 2015. The clinic will focus on developing players’ individual football skills including first touch, running with the ball, striking the ball and 1v1. Targetted for boys and girls of all abilities between the ages of 6 to 15 years, Football Technique is run by Jono Nolan (FRFC Development Coach) and other experienced coaches.

Yagoona v Rangers CUP Sunday 29 March
The Yagoona Lions v Forest Rangers Cup will be a special event. All games from U9s up will count towards the cup, and the cup will be presented to the winning club at the end of the day. It will also be a real family day, with the canteen and BBQ running all day and there’s even plans to have a jumping castle (probably not for the all age players – but you never know!).
While we want you to compete to the best of your ability to win the cup, playing the game with good spirit is even more important. Have a great game and do Forest Rangers proud
- The following teams advised they were not available for trials this weekend: 6Bee2, 7Fox3, 9Fox1 and O35
- We are still looking for trials for U12C, AAWD2 and AA1 – coaches/managers will be advised further

If you have any problems please contact Bruce (firstname.lastname@example.org). As before, you can borrow from other teams if you need more players.
Enjoy all and Go Rangers!
