A shock announcement came just after 5pm today (02/04/2018) it has been revealed that Neil Kitching will be leaving Stafford Rangers at the end of the season along with Nick Amos.
Here is a statement from the board:
“After a long and honest meeting with Manager Neil Kitching, his assistant Nick Amos and the board of directors, Neil and Nick have come to an amicable agreement that at the end of the current season 2017/18, both Neil and Nick have decided to leave the Football club. We would like to thank them for all their hard work over the past four years in bringing stability back to the club through some very hard times, winning the league, the Staffs Senior Cup, reaching the final of the Walsall Senior Cup; a decent run in the FA Trophy and FA Cup, helping finances. The board of directors would like to take this opportunity in wishing them all the very best for the future going forward. As we are still in the Staffs Senior Cup at the semi final stage could we ask all our fans to get behind Neil, Nick, his back room staff and the team through until the end of the season, thanking you all in anticipation.
Neil moved to Stafford Rangers from Rushall Olympic and has enjoyed great success including:
In 2014-2015 Rangers won the Staffs Senior Cup
2015-2016 Neil saw rangers take the Evostik First Diving South Title in what was a fantastic season.
