Manchester Rangers will withdraw from NWML Division 2 with immediate effect

In January 2019 the previous board of Manchester Rangers decided they were no longer pursuing a professional licence and as such withdrew support and funding from the club whilst giving the full blessing for Manchester Rangers to continue under the current group of players and volunteers.

A new committee was put in place to try and keep the team running on a smaller scale but despite tireless efforts have been unable to regroup the team over a short period of time. Due to a number of logistical issues and a loss of playing members the committee have taken the decision to withdraw from NWML with immediate effect, to give time for all of the requirements of running the club to be met. This is not a permanent withdrawal and Manchester Rangers will return to NWML once this has been put in place.

This withdrawal will only effect the senior open age side and will have no bearing on our junior section, Belle Vue Bees, or the fantastic work being done developing Rugby League by Manchester Rangers Community Foundation.
