    Media and comms person needed to replace stalwart. Must be patient, capable and have the ability to put lots of time in and work for free.

    Splendid start indeed!! 3.1 win against one of the more fancied teams in the league, who apparently have loads of money! However this is the Boro', and it seemed to be going swimmingly at half time. 1.0 up, then their captain got sent for an early bath 5 minutes after the break, (think its showers now old man, get with the times and give credit to the development work done recently! :roll: Ed) cruising now surely. :?:

    Well after watching the mighty Boro for nearly 50 years, recent experience has left me cautious regarding our immediate prospects. :xd: My son 25, has seen few of the glory days that I have had the good fortune to witness, in fact far too much of the opposite! So our observations, when they equalised and looked like scoring another, were not for family listening. But all was well, Boro scored two in the last few minutes of the game, and the last one was buried by debutante Luca Navarro, who had inexplicably blasted a similar chance over the Shed end from close range! :ohno:

    Onward and upward, a home toughy tonight against Warrington and another home game on Saturday vs Radcliffe. This last match will be interesting, Radcliffe recently not a strong outfit, and the team of two of the Boro's new signings! Luca scored as mentioned earlier, and displayed some good touches, & Luis Morrison- Derbyshire. He is an interesting character, having been a 'contestant' in Love Island in 2015. Is he a hunk? Couldn't possibly say, but as a female Boro' fan said to me before the game, "as long as he does a job for us, he'll do for me!" His Instagram as he came off, decide for yourself, answers on a postcard:- https://www.facebook.com/859170547/videos/pcb.2140030649487589/388551182839154

    0-1 tonight, not much between either side. Did think that in the past 3 or 4 seasons the Warrington side I saw tonight would have stuffed the boro' by 3 or 4 . A goalie on the bench is must have........

    Perhaps they could adopt a Canadian V formation?

    Putting things back in perspective - I've just seen the news that Gerry Jones has passed away.
    Aged 75, Gerry was part of our glory years and played for Boro between 1967 and 1974 and was an almost ever present at our home games, sat in the stand with a number of well known faces from back in the day. He was well known in the town and had his hairdressing business here too.
    R.I.P Gerry

    Rip Gerry.

    We deserved atleast a point last night, however I was very encouraged by the performance. Looking forward to Saturday now.

    Should be an interesting fixture this August Bank Holiday at 3pm, Marston Road.
    With The Boro losing one of our first five games and looking better than we have for about 4 years, we take on league leaders Buxton. They are highly fancied, we are highly competitive.
    Can we keep the points ticking over and get our highest gate yet?
    Tickets available online or pay on the gate. https://staffordrangersfc.ktckts.com/event/srf2122h03/stafford-rangers-v-buxton
