  2. The Founders Trail was formed in the autumn of 2009 when we took a group on a walking tour of Glasgow visiting a few sites relating to our Founders that our research had unearthed….this was to crash in spectacular fashion when a refreshment break was had at a West End Pub! In 2010 we operated a total of three Founders Trails,2018 saw this escalate to an incredible 25! We celebrated our 100th Trail in March of 2018. Our first eight Tours of 2019 are sold out. Since 2010 we’ve taken almost 9,000 people around Glasgow on the Founders Trail then through the front doors of Ibrox for the Stadium Tour,many for the first time. An increasing amount of our Supporters Clubs are booking the Founders Trail which is extremely important as it’s vital that the education process behind the project reaches as many people as possible.It’s today’s youngsters who will take our story forward. Many Charities have benefitted from the Founders Trail including The Beatson, Yorkhill, Erskine Hospital and Poppy Scotland. Our Board of Directors took the Founders Trail with us in November 2016 as did 32 Ibrox office staff in January of 2017. We have a close relationship with the Rangers Youth Development Company which we support by buying Stadium Bricks, these are used as prizes for our Trail raffle which we hold during our food and refreshment break, this is our way of putting your money back into the Club. Since 2009 the Founders Trail has generated almost £75,000 in revenue for the Club from our sales of Stadium Tours. The media team at the Club have assisted the project greatly by regularly posting updates on the Club website, the Founders Trail advert is a feature on the screens at Ibrox on matchday. The Founders Trail Roadshow was launched in 2014 which has seen us take our wonderful story out to supporters clubs, lodges and organisations all around the country and beyond. These events let us deliver our story to those who perhaps can’t come to Glasgow due to time constraint and cost. We have many Presentation events booked for 2019. We’ve also made great progress with our Restoration of Rangers Graves Project. It gave us a great sense of satisfaction to say that this year the final touch was put to the 34th plot that we’ve restored with many more to attend to. 2017 saw the Restoration Project extend into helping those bereaved by the Ibrox Disasters. As the curtain draws on 2018 we’d like to thank everyone who has helped and supported the Founders Project over the last nine years. We wish each and every one of you good health and a peaceful and prosperous 2019. Iain and Gordon. https://www.thefounderstrail.co.uk/

  13. On the 17th March 1877 Rangers played our first ever Scottish Cup Final against Vale of Leven at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, the match ended 1-1. A replay was also played at the cricket ground which also finished 1-1, that game went into extra time and was abandoned amid controversial circumstances. Vale eventually won the Scottish Cup at First Hampden 3-2. This was a Rangers team of youngsters going toe to toe with the mighty Vale. It was this series of games that saw the transformation of the Rangers from what was essentially a boys club, born on Fleshers Haugh only five years earlier, to a respected football club one which caught the imagination and admiration of the Glasgow public this is something that the Club never lost. The Rangers were never to look back. With this in mind we approached the committee at West of Scotland Cricket Club with a view to having a commemorative plaque placed on their pavilion wall celebrating this wonderful achievement. We’re delighted to say that our proposal was given full approval and the plaque is now in place. We at the Founders Trail would like to sincerely thank: John Thomson at West of Scotland CC.
