- Only teams from U/6 to U10’s that have been training at Nott Oval since the start of the season, can continue to train there on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday nights, plus the M-League squad.
- There is to be no training in any area of the 18 yard box by any teams. Please use the side of the fields where possible.

The club has also received the following feedback about the night:-
Re: FA Cup on Saturday 4th May – Just a quick message to say that on Saturday my son Ethan who plays for Rangers under 12/3 Red participated in the FA cup on Saturday & played as Chelsea who came runners up, He was unsure if to play or not as he was worried about the older players being too rough or they just wouldn’t want them playing with them, We (Both my wife & I) were really impressed by the older boys attitude towards the younger team mates by including them in the team, they gave them a shot of the ball & at times took it easy on them, this gave Ethan a big boost of self esteem although he enjoys playing with his other team mates.
You generally hear about young teenagers causing trouble & having disrespect for others, This showed Ethan & his younger sister Abigail that playing sport is good for him both socially & physically.
I know you can’t please everybody all the time but we enjoyed the night, This is the reason for the email, we just wanted to tell you that Narellan Rangers have some really good kids in the club.
