Former player invited to join board of Rangers...


Recommended Posts

Just been sent an amazing image of a 1924 letter which invites James Bowie (later our chairman) onto the RFC board.

Former player Bowie, later became chairman in 1935 for 12 years before the author of the letter, W. Rogers Simpson succeeded him. You can read more about the events of that period via this superb TRS article from last year:

The letter (in amazing condition) has been found inside an original version of the 'The story of Rangers 1873-1923' by John Allan which is being put up for sale/auction soon. A tremendous and topical piece of original memorabilia!
