Berwick Rangers FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/FOOTYFOCUSMAG Berwick Rangers FOOTBALL CLUB B erwick Rangers FC plays their home games at Shielfield Park and they currently compete in the Scottish Professional Football League Two. They are led by the team of President John Hush and Chairman Len Eyre and the club is looking to progress under their guidance. Their first team has made a steady start to their current league campaign, putting together a record of three wins, a draw and two defeats from their six matches. This has left them sitting in third position with ten points on the board. This should provide them with a solid platform from which to build as they look ahead to the rest of the campaign. As long as they are able to keep their current group of players together they should be in with a good chance of mounting a serious challenge for promotion. Their Secretary Dennis McCleary took the time to tell us more about the club. He told us, “I’ve been involved since 20 Issue 65 1970! I came in as Assistant Secretary for 6 years then took over as Secretary, later as Company Secretary too, full time although that was a short period. I have been away a couple of times but remain Part Time Football Secretary to this day. I had followed the club as a boy mainly as my father worked on the gates. “We don’t as such have a Youth Team but run a side in the SPFL Development League (Under 20) which proves more important. The fact we train in the Edinburgh/ Lothian area means we tend to concentrate on players coming in from the Central belt; Fife, Glasgow, Borders etc. We run football schools in the summer and
