Adrian is head coach of the Junior Rangers. He is a qualified F.A. level 1 coach and a member of the F.A. Licensed Coaches Club. He began his association with Curley Park Rangers way back in 1978 as a player! He began coaching in 2002, when like many before (and after) him he was spotted as an eager parent with two 5 year old boys and was asked if he’d “like to help”. From that moment on he and Andy Keenan began their footballing journey together taking the “Junior Rangers” through to U17, with many achievements including two league cup and one county cup final.
Adrian has also sat on the executive committee, having previously served as Vice Chairman. Having taken a short sabbatical from football he returned to the Club in 2014 to take up what he describes as “the dream job” of helping develop our younger players.
Welcome to the Curley Park Rangers “Junior Rangers” club. To be included in this age group your child MUST have attained the age of 5 years and be under the age of 6. Children under the age of 5 cannot legally be insured & all players at the club must be insured.
The Junior Rangers is the first stage of your child’s progress at football. At this age the children are just expected to settle into the club & enjoy themselves. There is no requirement to have full football gear; the only thing we insist upon is that they all wear shin guards, which can be purchased from the club. Also, there is no need to have the most expensive pair of football boots that money can buy. We run a “boot swap” scheme where you can buy used boots for £5 – see Ken in the clubhouse.
We train every Saturday from 9.30 – 10.30. Could I ask that you either remain at the ground during training or ensure that one of the other parents has agreed to watch over your child.
Curley Park Rangers fully supports the FA’s Respect Code of Conduct for coaches, team managers & club officials. Details of this code can be found on the club’s website & on the reverse of this letter. To confirm we ask that you sign the Code of Conduct form when you register your child with the club.
If there is anything you want to know just ask me or come to the clubhouse where there will be someone to answer all of your questions.
Saturday Mornings 9.30 – 10.30
