RAFC Update 3rd january 2013
Bushy Park upgrade has started today 3rd January. Rangers have been pushing for the upgrade of the dressing rooms for the last 5 years and in conjunction with the other Clubs using the Park have come to an agreement with Dublin City Council to part finance the current building work. This will see a much improved Dressing rooms complex with additional Dressing Room extensions and new shower areas, there will be a complete overhaul of the building with new windows, electrics and complete upgrade of the inside of the building. The upgrade will also provide new Male and Female Toilets for the public to use when Dressing Rooms are open. The Club would like to acknowledge the hard work put in by Chairman Michael O’Tierney in his negotiations with Dublin City Council and also all the help in getting the project to this stage by Mr. Bernard Brady from Dublin City Council. The Dressing rooms will take approx. 15 weeks to complete and during that time we would ask all members and Parents to assist our managers in the setting up of nets and goalposts as they will be stored elsewhere in the park. Changing Rooms / Housekeeping;Good Luck to all our Teams for the coming Season. Yours in Sport John Burke Hon Secretary
A new combination lock has been fitted to the Rangers locker in the changing room in Bushy Park. See email for new combination code. All Steel Net fixings must be returned to side of box and not just thrown on floor. White holders are for holding small sided Goalposts only. Also, after matches, managers should ensure that all nets must be put back in bags and locked in Press All managers should have their own match balls. In some instances, footballs from Tony Sheridan’s academy dressing room are being used for games / training etc. These should not be used for that purpose. If you have not received any match balls or training balls, please let me know by return email and I will organise same. Every manager should also have a first aid kit. If anyone doesn’t have one of these, please contact me and I will arrange to get one to you. Club Subs Reminder that club subs are now due. Please see copy of pdf attached. Please print off and pass to parents and chase up payment. The club has had to incur a lot of expenditure recently between league fees, insurance. The payment of the club subscription obviously goes a long way towards meeting these type of payments so please do not delay in collecting the monies due. Contact Details Please find attached and also a link below a contact list for Managers and committee members. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new managers. We hope you enjoy your time in the club. If you need help or assistance with anything, please ask. In addition, we would also like to extend our gratitude to all our existing managers, many of whom have been a number of years with their respective teams. For managers looking to do any coaching courses, please do not hesitate to contact me and again this is something that the club can organise on your behalf. Social media The club through its webmaster, Brian Cleary, has really upped the anti on the social media front. Aside from our updated website, Brian has also set up a Facebook page and also a twitter account. We could do with a little more participation so once again, if you are on Facebook or Twitter yourself, please like our page and follow our account.
