New man at the Chard Rangers' helm...

CHARD Rangers have appointed Luke Chubb as their new first team manager. Chubb was confirmed in the role at the club’s recent AGM and replaces Kev Bird.

Bird had the difficult job of leading a team who had suffered a mass exodus of players having won promotion back to the Perry Street League Division One. Rangers subsequently finished five adrift at the foot of the table and Chubb, who played 15 times last season, will take the helm with the team back down in Division Two.

The Rangers Reserve team will once again be managed by Justin Mason who led them to 10th spot in the PSDL Division Three last season and a Reg Eglon cup semi final.
