Ethos

Risborough Rangers coach girls and boys of ALL footballing abilities so if your child has never played but wants to come and have a go they will be made very welcome.  Players benefit from qualified instruction using the latest soccer methodologies, regulated by The FA and they will also learn individual skills and personal development as well as collective team development.

Football is about having fun and enjoying regular exercise. Helping players develop will also help to build self-confidence. We as coaches believe that everyone can benefit from playing the game and making new friends so come along on Saturday mornings and see what it’s all about.

Training

Training is held every Saturday morning starting at 9:30am sharp at: PR Upper School HP270LA. See directions tab for more detailed information.

What to wear/bring

Players should wear suitable shirts, shorts, socks and football boots on training days with warm clothing depending on weather conditions. Players are expected to wear studded boots. SHIN PADS are compulsory. Please also bring a soft drink.

Important Note to Parents

Any player that has a medical condition such as asthma must bring their own personnel medication to all training/matches and have it within easy access at all times.

New Players

We are always on the lookout for new players to come and join, so if your child has a healthy interest in playing football and having fun then please feel free to come and have taster session prior to joining our great club.

Matches

As an U13 age group we play matches every Sunday and currently operate 2 teams within the Wycombe and South Bucks Minor Soccer League (WSBMSL).  Our Rangers play in Division 1 with our Colts playing in Division 5 with both leagues being competitive.

Home matches will be played at either PR Upper School, HP270LA, Earl Mitchell, Peters Lane or Terrick and both teams play 11 v 11 matches.

By fielding two teams across different leagues we can offer football matches for all players of differing abilities.

As a squad we are very proud to be sponsored by the Carrot and Coriander who have provided all of the players with a fantastic kit for the last three seasons. We are also very grateful  to Brandon James who have sponsored tracksuit tops for all the players.
