RAMBLERSBurnham Ramblers Football club is now under local control again!
Three new trustees, all local people have now been appointed by a new committee of 17 people. A new chairman, treasurer and secretary have also been installed and finally we can now move forward and get the club back to its glory days of the past.
There is an air of optimism and plenty of enthusiasm around the club. The committee members along with other club members have spent many days over the summer working hard to get the ground, pitch and club house looking spic and span ready for the season ahead.
For many years the Junior Teams have been forced to operate separately from the Senior club. Those days are in the past and the club is now able to operate as one again, which is a huge move forward for our community.
Keith Wilson, first team manager and Dave Patience his assistant and coach have built a new team over the summer to compete in the Essex Senior league this season. At the time of writing, the first game, a friendly against Tilbury of the Ryman League saw Ramblers gain their first win, 2-0 with Charlie Kirby scoring both goals.
The match saw the highest home support turn out for years with just under 100 people going through the turnstiles. This is truly amazing. This included around 40 children, which is what the club is striving for. Under the old regime, the club had been disregarded by the local community. This shows the level of support the club can generate. The wish is to re-generate the passion that Ramblers had years ago. The committee’s aim is to achieve 200-300 people for every home game!
The junior teams are going from strength to strength as they have been for years, with teams in nearly every age group (some age groups with two teams!). The club are always encouraging boys and girls of any age to come along and enjoy training. Training is on Saturdays and starts again after the summer break at Ormiston Rivers on Saturday 22nd August at 9.30am. Any enquiries please call Martin Leno on 01621 741637.
Ramblers first team start their competitive league season on Saturday 8th August versus Enfield, 3pm kick off. There are two more friendly matches before the season’s big kick off, Thursday 30th versus Kelvedon Hatch 7.45pm and Saturday 1st August versus Aveley of the Ryman league, 3pm. Adult entry is £5 and kids under 16 are FREE. The Bar and food counter will always be open. Please come along and support the ’new’ Burnham Ramblers!
Unfortunately, the club is in debt and there is a long road ahead. The new committee along with many other volunteers will do everything they can to make Burnham Ramblers great again. It’s early days, but there’s a huge amount of enthusiasm. The club needs your support!
