After discussion between the coaching staff and senior players, it has been decided a number of senior players will switch roles throughout the forthcoming summer season. The ‘Leadership Team’ announced comprises of Scott O’Brien (Club Captain), Darryl Kay and Lee Gittens. Under new new coaches Paul Whitworth & Allan Coleman this new structure will allow sharing the responsibility of leadership throughout the team, and is an effective way of upholding the values and standards of the Leigh Miners Ranger Club without overstretching any one individual. A recent concept, it will need time to bed down but the squad have been very receptive to the idea and its one that has worked in many other sports.
Leigh Miners Rangers 1st team kick off their warm up game at Ince Rose Bridge this Saturday (17th Feb) at 2:00pm as they prepare for the Summer Season.
The Reserve side under new management of Simon Travis and Mick Blakeley welcome the Ince Rose Bridge Reserves to Twist Lane, also a 2:00pm kick off.
