Consortium Completes Paget Rangers Takeover

Paget Rangers and Birmingham St. George's to Merge

Consortium Completes Paget Rangers Takeover

A consortium led by James Parker has completed its takeover of Paget Rangers Football Club replacing the previous board. James Parker becomes the club’s new Chairman and he will now set about formalising the new boardroom structure. The consortium is composed of ten local businessmen and these will work alongside the existing volunteers and committee members to continue to drive Paget Rangers forward.

As part of the takeover, Paget Rangers Football Club and Birmingham St George’s Junior Football Club have merged with immediate effect. This move will see all of Birmingham St George’s existing junior teams come under the Paget Rangers banner in both the JPL and MJPL. As a result, from next season, Paget Rangers will be fielding a youth team in every age group from U7s to U19s as well as an open age adult team in the Midland Football League. The new structure will also develop girls teams and a women’s team in the very near future. It is hoped that Paget Rangers Football Club will be able to field two sides in every junior age group.

The new consortium have moved quickly to appoint coaches to various roles with the first team, James Parker himself will be Manager, ably assisted by Dwight Blake, with Mark Robinson as Matchday Coach and former professional footballer Courtney Pitt as Head Coach. The First Team Physio and Strength and Conditioning Coach is Rob Francis, whilst Martin Gethin has been appointed as Fitness Coach. The important role of Club Welfare Officer is to be shared between Sam Newbold and Michelle Parker.

Finally the new consortium felt it was extremely important to recognise the hard work, commitment and dedication of those who had helped to get Paget Rangers to where it is today. The consortium have therefore appointed former Chairman, Matthew Dainty, to the honorary role of Club President. Matthew will continue to have a strong say and influence on the Club’s board and decision making process as well as offering guidance and support as the club continues to develop and progress. Matthew’s role will ensure that the Club’s traditional values and heritage are at the forefront of everyone’s mind going forward as Paget Rangers Football Club looks to establish itself as one of the leading football clubs in the North Birmingham area.
