    The Founders Who Continued to Follow Follow.

    Here’s Tom and Moses in later years.
  2. During our early research into the lives of the kids who formed Rangers we were curious to find if they attended matches later in life to witness first hand how this seed that they had planted at Fleshers Haugh in 1872 had now grown into a huge football institution. We had discovered that the great Tom Vallance was present on the very day that our magnificent Main Stand opened in 1929. Tom was also a guest of the Club in 1933 for the New Year’s Day game against celtic and again when we entertained Sporting Club of Vienna later that month. Just recently our research has discovered this newspaper article from 1905 which mentions both Tom Vallance and Moses McNeil making the pilgrimage to Hampden for the Scottish Cup Final against Third Lanark . This is two of the teenage boys who were there during those first few days of our Club supporting the Club, both now in their fifties. It must have given them both an incredible sense of achievement and satisfaction.

    The Founders Trail Roadshow 2019.

    We at the Founders Trail are aware that due to time constraint, distance and cost many supporters can't make the journey to Glasgow to join us on the Founders Trail so five years ago we launched the Founders Trail Roadshow which is an alternative format which lets us take our wonderful story out to you. The Founders Trail Roadshow tells the story of our Founders from the shores of the Gareloch, to their arrival in Glasgow, their journey to the front door of Ibrox Stadium and beyond. This is done by way of a slideshow presentation. We profile each of our Founders and the subsequent growth of our unique club. The presentation also provides an insight into the Restoration of Rangers Graves Project and of course the Founders Trail. We hope that by telling this story it will give everyone an understanding of the very foundations upon which those lads built our club. The Founders Trail Roadshow has visited places such as Broxburn, Plymouth,Blackpool, Harthill,Fraserburgh,Thringstone, Clough, Belfast and Newtownards and have bookings all around the country with supporters clubs and organisations over the coming weeks. The presentation lasts for approximately 90 mins, with a 20 minute interval we also encourage a Q&A session at the conclusion. The roadshow can be booked to coincide with other entertainment you may wish to provide for those attending. We have all of our own equipment, all we need from you is a plug point and an audience. If you would like to discuss us bringing the Founders Trail Roadshow to your supporters club or organisation then please contact us for details by emailing us at thefounderstrail @gmail.com or by calling 07902 855536.

    The Restoration of Rangers Graves Project. Donations.

    I'm not here to talk about individuals it's about the project so i will continue to ignore you as i don't have the time or inclination to be dragged into a debate. Rangers purchased the stone for Harry McNeil's plot and have offered assistance if and when it's required which we're extremely grateful for but The Restoration Project currently doesn't require financial assistance.

    The Restoration of Rangers Graves Project. Donations.

    The Restoration of Graves is the Rangers support giving dignity and respect back to those who gave us everything. The Board have said that any assistance we need will be covered but we're very keen that the work is done via donations from our fellow supporters.
