Proud Rangers set to open clubhouse

Issue 538



A SUCCESSFUL community football club’s brandnew facilities will be officially opened tomorrow. 



Dewsbury Rangers’ longawaited clubhouse on Wakefield Road is set to be inaugurated by Leeds United footballer Leigh Bromby after years of hard work from officials. 



Players from the 300member football club, which fields teams of boys and girls aged six to 16 plus open age squads, have had to shower and change at home after matches for years. 



The new building has been taking shape over the last few months thanks to a £551,781 grant from the Football Foundation plus funds from club and council sources.



It means the Rangers will at last have a permanent base with six changing rooms, changing facilities for officials, a medical room and café lounge area.



Leigh Bromby will open the clubhouse at 1pm on Saturday Leigh, along with Coun Paul Kane and local Olympic torchbearer Gayna Goalby.



Other fun events will also take place on the day and club secretary Graham Burton said: "This is a fantastic facility for the club, its members and the local community.



“We couldn’t have made this possible without the continued support of the Football Foundation, West Riding FA, Coun Paul Kane and Kirklees Council, along with the Dewsbury Area Committee and finally all the support from the Dewsbury Rangers committee members, who have worked tirelessly over several years to make this project happen.”



Football Foundation chief executive Paul Thorogood said: “I am delighted to see this tremendous new facility complete and ready for use by the local community.



“Dewsbury Rangers has worked tirelessly in partnership with the West Riding FA to reach this stage and deserve great credit for their efforts.”
