Gers supporters club/bars in Perth, Australia

22 posts in this topic

Hello, I've been a member here for some now and while log-in occasionally to catch up with what's being said about the Gers I've never actually got round to posting.

Anyway the reason I am posting now is that I'm moving to Perth, Australia next week and just wondering if anyone knows about supporters clubs out there and/or any good bars to watch the games and catch up with some fellow bears.

I see from the Rangers website the Rockingham RSC is based there and I've heard the Inglewood Soccer Club shows the games but wondering if anyone has any experience.

cheers

ha, as tempting as it is to assume the persona of the legend that was Gary Bollan, I am not him. I wonder where he is now tho...

This doesn't precisely answer your question, but I watched the Old Firm game last January in a bar called Moondyne Joe's. It wasn't a Gers bar. In fact, if anything, there were more Celtic shirts on view (not that there were many of either), but if you can't find anywhere else then at least you know they show Scottish games there.

I've been living in Perth for almost 3 years now.

Unfortunately, the only place I've been able to watch any games has been at Floreat Athena in Britannia Road, Mt Hawthorn and even then it has only been the Old Firm games. I think the vast majority of bears here have Setanta International through Foxtel and are able to access the games at home. The only place you may be able to watch all the games are at the Casino which is open 24/7.

I don't have Foxtel so usually have to make do following the game on Rangers Media and watching the You Tube highlights the next day.

Re the contact listed Davie Milligan, I tried to contact him some time back only to be told he moved back to Scotland.

I've watched a few games at Floreat, I haven't been there in a couple of years though since we got Setanta through Foxtel.

They used to show all the games and it was a good setup, not sure if it's changed at all though

cheers for that guys, guess I'll have to get setanta in as soon as I can! How many of the games are televised?

So have you ever tried the Rockingham RSC (The Leisure Inn Rockingham) or the Inglewood Soccer Club?

I've never been to inglewood or rockingham which is quite a bit further south.

Seranta have most of the games. All games against celtic although there's the odd game against smaller teams that isn't televised

sorry about spelling, posting from phone

Not tried Rockingham RSC or Inglewood. I know that a lot of the Rockingham boys come to Floreat Athena for the Old Firm games.

My recommendation would be to contact the Perth RSC Facebook page.

My Dad lives in Rockingham and I visited that club when I went over to see him. Nice wee club with friendly people but it was some 10 years ago I went! One thing though Rocky is quite a bit south from Perth City centre - about 30/45 mins by car. You'd be better off finding one nearer the Metro area.

ok nice one, I'll have to find my bearings when I get there but sounds like the Floreat is the best option. Roll on the 24th!

Hey Mate. I'm in Sydney and most games are on Setanta, although not all. I just watch the missing games on Rangers TV. You can purchase by single game if you prefer. If you are ever over in Sydney, give me a shout.
