Ramsbury FC Awards Night @ the Crown & Anchor Pub – Saturday 7 May 2022

Ramsbury FC Awards Night – Saturday 7th May 2022

After a frustrating season where Ramsbury FC struggled with putting out a consistent team each week and, as such, finished mid table and with a Cup quarter final place, the end of season awards saw a great turn out at the Crown & Anchor Pub in Ramsbury. The Crown & Anchor Pub have been long time supporters of Ramsbury FC and kindly allowed the team to use the small stage at the rear of the pub where the awards were held in glorious sunshine.

Team Manager Sean Eviil was his own inimitable self as the compare and was joined by the Ramsbury FC Club Chair Andy Knowles to help present the awards…and after a few jokes and spoof awards the following accolades were handed out:

Players Player: This was a close one, but deservedly went to Adam Elmer as the Players Player for the 21/22 season.

Managers Player: Having scored the most goals this season and (alledgedly) being somehow related to the gaffer, the Managers Player went to Rob Pocock.

Most Improved Player: Although he could not make the awards night, most improved player award went to Ash T for both his outfield and goalkeeping play. And his award was relayed to him via video….very Hollywood!

Leigh Harris, who created the brilliant Ramsbury FC Fantasy Football League, and had an excellent season himself, handed the inaugural FF winners prize to Adam Elmer and Elmos XI with 617 point; and who was followed by Leigh Harris and Out on Bale with 526 points and Jon Symon and Dias Another Day with 519. Great fun and another win for Adam on the night

A huge thank you must go to Sean Eviil who has been ever present all season as Player / Manager and surely at 59 will now hang up his boots for good as the National Football Museum want them back!! He has been awesome for some time now and along with Club Captain Chris Roberts has been at the heart of Ramsbury FC and all that they do. A huge thank you to the Crown & Anchor Pub and also to Ergo FM as the Club main sponsor.

Hopefully this excellent end of season awards will see a resurgence of Ramsbury FC and a stronger squad for next season. Well done to all involved and have a great rest over the Summer.

Ramsbury FC donate footballs, strips and boots to Ukraine refugee children

Ramsbury FC donate footballs, strips and football boots in support of Ukraine refugee children. 

 

Ramsbury FC collected team strips, footballs and football boots to donate to Ukraine refugee children re-located to the UK.

Ramsbury FC U17s Coach Geoff Pratt, pictured with his son Ben who plays in the U17s squad and Ant Atkinson from the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, and a parent in the U16s team, responded to a request for donations of football kit to support children who have been re-located to the UK due to the war in Ukraine.

The response was instant and good quality football boots, Ramsbury FC strips and a number of training balls were quickly handed to Ant Atkinson of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust in support of this worthy cause.

It is planned to do more in the near future and hopefully provide more kit and support to those children that need it.

Ramsbury FC has previously supported ATE, a local registered charity that supports communities living in a remote area of Ghana in Africa, by  donating strips and boots and will look to continue to support similar charities that provide much-needed support to families and children in difficult circumstances. You can learn more about Action Through Enterprise (ATE) here: ATE’s Story | ATE Ghana

Ramsbury FC are proud to support ATE and also support the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and their aim in creating a sustainable future for our communities and the animals and people within them. Learn more about the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust here: Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

The Ukraine appeal remains paramount and more information can be accessed via this link:

Ramsbury FC lose 3-0 away to Bassett Bulldogs FC in Cup Quarter Final

Ramsbury FC end season with 3-0 cup loss away to Bassett Bulldogs FC in the Quarter Final of the George Thomas Cup.

It was a great effort from Ramsbury FC, who are a Division below Bassett Bulldogs FC, and who showed great resilience against a strong Bassett side. The second half was especially good and saw some fine saves from Proccy in goal and which deservedly earned him man of the match. The defence were particularly good today and the struggle was to provide service to the forwards and score, which at times has been the story of the season!

There was no issue with the weather or the pitch, but the officiating did not help the game flow and there was frustration from both sides. But in the end the better team on the day won and well done to Bassett and good luck in the next round.

It has been a tough season for Coach Sean Eviil and team Captain Chris Roberts with a struggle to find consistency in both team availability and selection, numbers for training and getting the play right on the pitch. At 59, Sean has defied medical science and played matches when the team were short of players and acquitted himself superbly; and when he has played he has done so with a combination of deft touch, close control and measured tenacity. It has been a brilliant contribution from the Gaffer who has been an inspiration and and example to all of the squad.

The team now have a rest from matches at the season end and can have some satisfaction that they have remained mid table even with a poor stop-start season that they have endured and managed some notable wins. It is time for all to regroup, think about recruiting for nex season and enjoy a break and some light training before the next season in September.

Well done to all involved in keeping our village football senior side going as it has done so for 135 years since its formation in 1887. It is a great achievement and a superb grass roots village football club with great facilities and even greater people.

All the best
