A massive thank you to Wickes, VIY, Sport England, Tom, Alan, Ed, Dan, Sarah and Zoe, for helping make the project a reality, for Keith, Frank, Tony, Richard, Brian and the ERFC team for managing, feeding and supporting and to all the kids who helped
What a fantastic day! Thank you to all involved! Every year I am amazed at the good will and generous spirit that has come to embody this great football club.
Nail bitting stuff, does not describe it! The boys battled in the heat to eventually win 3-1, beating Hendon United U13 White, through team work and a good old fashion dose of true grit and determination.
Without doubt our best performance of the season, wonderful flowing football, team work and sportsmanship. Thank you to Edmonton Rangers Football Club, thank you to the parents who week in, week out provide lifts and support, most of all thank you to the lads! Proud of you all.

- Saturday 2nd June 10am - 12pm

Our Chairman, Roger got in touch and asked me to share this with you all.
Came across this Long Service presentation/recognition from The Middlesex FA, Margaret’s 25 years service (now 29) and Keith + Caroline were 15 (now 19) even though the certs say 10 years, presented by Gary Mabbutt MBE, the second longest serving player for Spurs with 477 appearances!
Amazing, well done Margaret, Caroline and Keith.

The girls football sessions over Summer at Broomfield Park were a huge success. As a result the club is excited to announce regular sessions at the all weather AstroTurf at Ashmole Academy in Southgate,

The sessions are for girls in school year 2 and we are always looking for new players to join us. So if your daughter is interested please contact our girls football coach Shah Qureshi on 07941 655554.
We are also pleased to announce that we have secured sponsorship from London based furniture & lighting designers Cox London...more news to follow.
What an amazing tournament. Edmonton Rangers super Ref and coach Tony was invited to ref a few games for Kith & Kids football tournament. Kith & Kids is a charity that supports people with learning disabilities and autism.
We were lucky enough to have been invited along to support the boys and girls playing. We bumped into Frank whose expert eye was picking out the winning team time and time again. Charlie and Frank had a long chat about the attacking nature of some teams and the defensive strategy of others.
All in all a great afternoon of footie fun. If you want to learn more about Kith & Kids link just here.
There is a reason Edmonton Rangers FC Summer Football Tournament is London's greatest! With over 120 teams from across London and literally, thousands of friends and family all coming together to support their team, in an extraordinary sporting spectacular, with sportsmanship, friendship, equality and most importantly fun at its core.
The back room team at Edmonton Rangers Football Club, came together to deliver an incredible weekend of football. If this weekend is any judge of grass roots football, I can tell you, that it is alive and most definitely kicking!

The sun shone brightly on our corner of the football world this weekend. As parents and players alike gathered to celebrate their teams victories and reflect on their defeats, across a great season.
As the kids played footie, chomped on burgers and chatted with team mates, Margaret and the team managers laid out the trophies and awards
Our very own superstar Ash had the tunes blasting out all day long, while the crowds gathered, and consumed vast amounts of BBQ.
As the teams lined up in age order the coaches, managers and parents cheered and clapped as the awards and trophies were handed out.
The final event of the day was looming, Parents v Coaches! Who would win this battle of giants? The tensions were high. This North London derby had players loyalties pulled in two directions, would they support their parents? Or would their loyalties to club and badge have them supporting their managers? As I stepped into goal for the first half, my heart in mouth not wanting to let my team mates down or indeed my lads The U12s Sharks!
The sun was blisteringly hot, the tension more so! As if in slow motion the ref raised his whistle and blew, the first half had started and we were off.
The instructions I had barked out at the kids all season started to flood my mind, don't do that, do this, look for the opportunity...
The first half saw the coaches dominate moving the ball around well with only a few attempts at goal. Thankfully Uggs and Sean performing their roles in mid-field and defence like spartan warriors. Garth like a true sportsman had lent his boots to another player and played on in his trainers! Sukie, Ash and Richard making great runs but were just not able to finish with a goal.
As the sun beat down the coaches started to show signs of fatigue and the parents had their first attempt at goal, I dove and batted the ball out and quickly scrambled to my feet to dive onto the ball. Mercifully the ref blew the whistle the end of the first half. A clean sheet for both teams.
The 2nd half saw the parents come out fighting, spurred on by the kids. Dennis had stepped in to cover the goalkeeping duties for the Managers team. Thankfully he did I am not sure I would have been able to make the great saves he did.
Ash made several great runs, twisting and turning around the opposition, showing some amazing ball skills. But even he could not break the deadlock.
Time and again both teams pushed hard on the break only to find the back 3 acting in unison and stopping any attack.
The final whistle blew - penalties... Could this game get any more tense?
Both keepers made incredible saves! After 5 penalties were taken the score was 3 - 3! Sudden death!
Despite an amazing dive, the parents had done it.
What a game, what a day, they think it's all over, well it is now......
Two of the U16 Bears training with the England Beach Football Squad at the weekend!
Well done to all involved!
