Stafford Rangers Football Club

The seventies proved to be the most successful era in the club’s history to date and put Stafford Rangers firmly on the map. With the late Roy Chapman in charge, the club recorded a Northern Premier League Championship, FA Trophy and Staffordshire Senior Cup treble in season 1971/72; Ray Williams scored a club record 48 goals. Three seasons later Rangers progressed to the FA Cup Fourth Round defeating Stockport County, Halifax Town and Rotherham United on the way. They were finally beaten by Peterborough United in front of a 31,160 gate at Stoke City’s Victoria Ground. The home Third Round tie with Rotherham attracted a record 8,536 to Marston Road. Chapman departed to manage League club Stockport County but Rangers were again at Wembley in 1975/76 for their second FA Trophy Final losing to Scarborough 3-2 after extra time. Roy Chapman returned as manager and success continued with a second FA Trophy Final success in 1979, this time against Kettering Town with Alf Wood scoring both goals in a 2-0 win.
