President’s Message

Dear Member,

It is a great honour and privilege for me to be President of Bective Rangers FC for the season 2020/2021.

I want to wish our Past President Johnny Vaughan the very best and thank him for all the work he put in for what was a very long season. I want to also thank every member of the Executive committee for all their hard work not only during last season but especially over the last 6 months. I am looking forward to working alongside Snr Vice President David O‘Donnell and Jnr Vice President Michael Shalloe and I would like to take this opportunity in congratulating them on their nominations.

Our season is up and running, but due to the current Government Guidelines, matches can only take place behind closed doors. Hopefully guidelines will be altered soon to allow members to return to the side-lines and support our teams. Our most recent match was streamed live and the club plans to continue this service into the future.

Michael Flood – Club President 2020/21

Our Covid-19 Compliance officer Gavin Walsh and his team have worked diligently to put the appropriate measures in situ to make the clubhouse and grounds compliant with Government and Leinster branch Covid-19 guidelines. Our priority is the safety and welfare of our members, staff and players.

Obviously like all sports clubs our revenue will be curtailed due to the effects of the ongoing Pandemic therefore I would urge you to support your club in whatever manner you can.

Congratulations to our new club Captain Oisin Lennon, I wish him all the best for the coming season.

Let me also wish our Head Coach, Bernard Jackman, his Coaching Staff, Medical Team, Physio, Kit Manager, and all the players, managers, coaches from every level, Senior, Junior , Under 20’s, Vets , Youths and Mini’s a successful, enjoyable and injury free season.

A club is not a club without its volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to support the club and its members and I would like to thank all of them most sincerely for their time and efforts.

To all our sponsors past and present, a big thank you for continuing to support our club in these challenging times, we really appreciate your contribution as the club would not survive without your continued generosity.

Hopefully the current restrictions will ease in the near future and we can all return to our ground and clubhouse to support our club. I know our club manager Mark O’Brien and his team will be ready to look after you with their renowned Bective hospitality.

Let us altogether, support our club and our teams for the 2020/2021 season and if you can be of assistance either on or off the pitch, please feel free to contact myself or any committee member to volunteer your time or services.

I hope you, your family and loved ones stay safe during these stressful times.

Best Regards,

Michael Flood
