St Andrews Berwick Rangers Supporters will be delighted to continue the sponsorship of Sean Brennan’s kit. We have sponsored Sean for the last two seasons and we shall continue to do so for this season. We shall also maintain our advert in the match day programs and our advertising board in the stadium.
The donations are almost complete. Northern Soul Kitchen received theirs and the money for the debating society was handed to them to pass on. All that is left is the Church in Spittal but I’ll attend to that in a couple of weeks. The Northstar centres donation will be sorted out with the football club when the fixtures are released.
The first of the donations have been issued. The food bank and Northern spirit have had their donations today via the internet. The foodbank also benefits from a gift aid boost. The rest will be issued hopefully at the weekend other than The NorthStar centre. Their hospitality will be later when the fixtures are issued and they can arrange a date with Berwick Rangers.
Having won a stonking £615 from the Tweedmouth Rangers monthly draw i have decided to put the money back into the local community. Tweedmouth Rangers were told to keep a portion for the club and the remainder will be split between other community projects in the town over the next few weeks.
Northern Soul Kitchen.
No surprises here that some money will be heading to them.
North Star Centre.
Again no surprise here. We will be using some of the money to offer them hospitality at a Berwick Rangers game this season as i did in the previous season. This will be organised through Berwick Rangers once the fixtures are released.
Northern Spirit Berwick.
stumbled across these guys while searching the internet for community clubs in Berwick. New to me but will be receiving a donation. http://www.northernspiritberwick.co.uk/ Northern Spirit Berwick are a Peer Support Group for people suffering Mental Health conditions.
Berwick food bank.
Again no real surprise. We offer donate to he foodbank in Berwick, especially at Christmas.
Messy Church, Spittal.
A donation towards craft materials. It’s a fun activity for children.
What to expect
We start off with different crafts, arranged on tables around the church, run by members of the congregations. We have 6 different tables, with things like making models, or fridge-magnets, or windmills, or planting, drawing, cutting, sticking and painting with brushes or fingers or sponges or straws! It's different every month.
Then we all eat together (the food will be provided), again giving us more opportunity to get to know each other.
Berwick debating society.
They run out of Northen souls kitchen and were suggested to my by Northen Soul Kitchen. A new society starting up and have a few costs that we can cover to help them on their way.
Winner winner chicken dinner. The remainder of the money will be split over charity groups in Berwick in the next few weeks.
St Andrews Berwick Rangers Supporters have dontated 5 touch screen laptops to the Berwick youth project. The laptops have been fully refurbished by the School of computer science technicians at the University of St Andrews. The department had spare laptops from a previous program and were delighted to see them have a new lease of life. More information on the Berwick youth project can be found here. http://www.berwickyouthproject.co.uk/about/
I’m not going to talk about boardrooms, managerial changes or the squad here. Just looking at life in the Lowland league. I was quite disparaging of it a few weeks ago. I was looking at away games and thinking I wouldn’t be going to any of them, but my mindset is adjusting. It’s not even a week since the final game that saw us out of League 2....
Teams in the league.
These are the teams according to Wikipedia, subject to change at the whim of the footballing powers that be.....
I plan to attend all home matches as usual. Midweeks games are a no though, I can’t make it in time after work. I’m still unsure if the Lowland league has midweek games as part of the setup.
Well there’s a few on the list that I think I won’t be attending. Dalbettie Star, Edusport and Gretna 2008 are a bit too much of a trek for me and my old dad. Gala will probably be on that list too. I’m also not too sure about Edinburgh University and Stirling University. Both are not too far to travel but it just has the feeling of a training match/friendly to me. But we will see closer to the time. The fact that we only play once at home and once away might mean that I decide to attend. I’ll need to wipe out most of my favourites in my satnav (or dare I keep them for next season.....)
BSC Glasgow might get a visit but I’ll need to look at parking so my dad can attend. Civil service strollers not too sure about either. Cumbernauld Colts should be fine though, It will be a bit odd at Broadwood but not watching Clyde. Kelty Hearts is the closest to us and will be one of the top teams so that will get a visit. East Kilbride will get s trip too as one of the top teams.
Spartans may also get a visit depending on how I feel at the time. I know the ground from watching Berwick playing Edinburgh City. East Stirling will also get a visit, it’s like seeing an old friend again but in a new house......
St Andrews Berwick Rangers Supporters are delighted to continue the player sponsorship of Kurt Yule for this coming season. We wish Kurt and Tweedmouth Rangers all the best in the coming season.
This years award was given to Lewis Barr. Lewis has performed well this season despite the results. The awards were postponed again to an indeterminate date. The award was left with the club secretary to pass on so no photos of the hand over.
Well a trip up to Cove and we are the underdogs. William Hill offering 4-1 for a Berwick win. I’ll be taking my dad up for the game and have hospitality booked for the return leg at Shielfield. My Brother and his wife will be in Berwick that weekend so they will be joining my dad and I. We have also had a director resign....... I’m really hoping the team can pull us out of this. If we are in the Lowland league next season I will keep up my sponsorship of the club but I’ll probably not attend as many games. There seems to be midweek fixtures in the Lowland league so I won’t manage them. Away games will be few and far between too. I’ll not be going to Edinburgh University or Stirling University or...........
