Michael Goode will have his first home game as Deeping Rangers boss this weekend.

The former Deeping player replaced Tuncay Korkmaz this summer following the Turkish tactician’s decision to step down due to work commitments.

Deeping kicked off their pre-season programme with a 5-0 win over Blackstones on the 3G pitch at Stamford last week.

They face Peterborough Sports on Saturday (3pm) at the Haydon Whitham Stadium.

Meanwhile, Holbeach United are at home to King’s Lynn Reserves on Saturday and Bourne Town head to Langtoft United on Thursday (7.15pm kick-off).

Deeping will be hosting a sportsman’s dinner to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

The guest speaker on Thursday, September 17, will be Chelsea legend Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris supported by comedian Mickey Pugh.

Tickets are £35 per head which includes a meal and entertainment. There will also be a sports memorabilia auction and raffle.

Tickets are selling fast so to avoid disappointment, order yours from Paul Smith on or 07990 672216.

A blend of youth and experience will be taking charge of two new Deeping Rangers under-8 teams for the 2015-16 season.

The Under-8 Clarets will be managed by 17-year-old Jack Baxter who has been with Rangers since the age of five.

Jack already has a solid 12 months of coaching experience with Deeping Soccer School, and on top of his FA football and Fusbal coaching qualifications he is also a well-known referee on the junior and youth circuit.

Jack will be assisted by dad Dean – another long-standing Deeping coach.

The team is being sponsored this season by Deeping St James Parish Council.

The Under-8 Blues are headed by former Brentford Football in the Community coach Steve Eason.

He has more than 20 years’ experience as an FA coach and is being assisted by Lee Sutton who has 10 years’ experience of managing at junior level.

The team is been sponsored by The Boundary Club Market Deeping and ACM Gas Heating and Plumbing.

The two teams join the successful Deeping junior section who will be looking to add to an impressive haul of silverware from last term.
