Berwick Rangers are continuing to engage in a big way with their surrounding communities.

It is declaring the launch of the Berwick Rangers Community Foundation, following the end of season Board Zoom update.

The Shielfield outfit stated in January, at the open fans’ forum, that “putting the club at the heart of the town and surrounding communities is critical to achieve all our outcomes”.

“The Foundation will have a number of charitable objectives and outcomes, and will be registered as a charity on the English side of the border,” said a spokesman. “However, that won’t prohibit activities on both sides. The registration allows us to access grant funding from Sport England and the Football Foundation.

“The Foundation is a separate entity from the football club. However, they will work closely in partnership to deliver shared outcomes.”

Three trustees have been appointed and are currently in the process of registering and preparing to launch the Foundation.

The names of the founding Trustees will be announced shortly.

In the meantime, applications are welcomed to fill the roles of additional trustees.

Closing date for applications will be Friday, July 10 and CVs, with a covering letter should be emailed to: [email protected]

Meanwhile, the club has offered best wishes to six players who’ll be leaving the club when their contracts expire on June 30.

‘Keepers Sean Brennan, Mark Walters and Ryan Kidd, plus midfielder Ali Smith and striker Yaw Osei, are on their way, as is Gary Windram, who has agreed pre-contract terms with Coldstream.
