New Volunteer of The Year
Luke Powell of Stafford Rangers FC has been named as Staffordshire FA’s New Volunteer of The Year for the 2022-23 season.
This well-deserved recognition comes as a testament to his commitment to elevating the local football scene and enhancing the connection between Stafford Rangers FC and its passionate fanbase.
At the heart of Luke’s contributions lies the establishment of Stafford Rangers FC Radio – a dynamic platform that has breathed new life into match day experiences for fans. The radio station offers captivating live commentary for all league and cup games, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the excitement of each moment, even if they can't make it to the stadium. Through his dedication to providing vivid play-by-play descriptions, Luke has successfully bridged the gap between the pitch and the fans.
Beyond the airwaves, Luke Powell extends his dedication to the local community through his weekly match reports in the area's newspapers. These insightful pieces not only capture the essence of each game but also provide a comprehensive overview of Stafford Rangers FC's performance.
Luke also amplifies the promotion of non-league football through a weekly radio phone-in show on the local airwaves. This initiative has proven to be a powerful platform for connecting with the community and sparking meaningful conversations around the beautiful game. Through insightful discussions, expert analysis, and interactive engagement, his radio show has played an instrumental role in shedding light on the nuances of non-league football.
