We hope everybody is having a good year and in that festive mood for a better Christmas 2021!
COVID-19 put an end to most of our 2020 and 2021 events, however 2022 is now calling and we are excited to announce that planning for both our annual events, and some brand new ones too, are well and truly underway.
With a grand total of 4 events planned between April and September next year we will not disappoint.
In April we are finally able to bring you the Dave Gurney Memorial Tournament. On the 24th of November 2019 it was with deepest sadness that we lost our Club Founder and Life President Dave Gurney, and as a celebration of his life Lancing Rangers Football Club wanted to remember Dave in the only way possible for the club and local area and that was to hold a Memorial Tournament. With the original tournament planned for April 2020 this has been pushed back two years and now in April 2022 we are finally able to say that we will be hosting the Memorial Tournament at the Sussex County FA 3G in Culver Road, Lancing. The official date is still yet to be discussed, however registrations will open for players wanting to play on January 1st 2022, along with a confirmation of the date and more information on the event. Spaces are limited to 80 players across the following 4 teams (20 each): Lancing Rangers Managers & Parents Lancing Rangers Young Boys (under 35s) Lancing Rangers Veterans (over 35s) Lancing Empire Old Boys The event will still raise money for Dave's two beneficiaries, St Barnabas House & NSPCC, with all money raised from the event being split 50/50.
Jumping forward a month into May, more specifically the 21st and 22nd of May, and we will be hosting our annual Lancing Rangers Tournament which we expect to be the biggest and best tournament yet. Although our normal food stall won't be featuring, there will be alternative catering stalls and plenty of drink available, along with our usual pay-to-play events.
Team registration for our annual tournament will open soon with more information on the event being released in due course.
Another month and we are already halfway through 2022. June will see us host our first Presentation Evening for two years and we will be returning to our usual venue at the Worthing Assembly Halls. 2022 will be a special year for Lancing Rangers with the club hitting the 40 year milestone since it's formation. We plan on celebrating this milestone by adapting our normal Presentation Evening and making it the best one yet!
Looking ahead to the summer and the 2021/22 season comes to a close. Our Event Committee team are working hard to bring a summer event which can be celebrated by all players, parents and managers. More information on this event will be announced nearer the time, however we expect to host the event sometime between July and September.
Have we mentioned that we have some very exciting events coming next year..?!
Further information for each event will be released in chronological order with information for the Dave Gurney Memorial Tournament expected to be released in the next few weeks.
