Knightswood legion's appeal to save last club in Glasgow THE last British Legion club in Glasgow is looking for football fans to help it in its fight to keep it open. The branch in Knightswood has suffered from falling numbers and is facing rising costs to keep its club going. It has been granted permission to hold a bucket collection outside Ibrox when Rangers play their home leg of their Europa League qualifying tie next week. It hopes that fans will want to help out and donate cash to keep a long-standing ex-forces tradition alive in Glasgow. The club is also looking at setting up a crowdfunding initiative on JustGiving to help raise cash. Barclay McCran, Branch President, said they want to save the last Legion club in the city. He said: “It is an appeal to save the club which is in danger of closing through a lack of income. “We don’t want it to close. It is the only one left in Glasgow.” He added: “I want to thank Rangers for allowing us to hold the collection.” He said the club is a lifeline for many ex-servicemen and women and for many older people in the community. Mr McCran would also like to see more people apply to join as members and see what facilities the club has. The British Legion Club is open to anyone and anyone in the Glasgow area can join. The Knightswood Royal British Legion club is in Cairntoul Drive, Knightswood, and is close to Garscadden Railway Station The Knightswood branch has been open since 1944 and has had thousands of members over the years. But from a high of almost 2000, it is now down to around 230. Changing patterns of social life and fewer ex-service personnel has led to a drop in membership. There are 160 Branches of the Royal British Legion across Scotland and 60 associated clubs. It was established in 1921 when charities formed to help soldiers from the First World War amalgamated.
Ticket sales looking pretty decent for this. Reckon it'll be between 35,000 and 40,000. How's everyone feeling about this game? Personally, I'm pretty confident that we will win due to the fact that the points mean much more to us than they do to Hearts. It's human nature to take your foot off the gas when the league is won. Their players will want to avoid unnecessary injuries, etc. Providing that we show the same intensity and desire that we have done in our past few games, I definitely think they are there for the taking. I can see us lining up something like this: _________________Bell_____________________ ____Mohsni____McCulloch____Zaliukas______ _McGregor__Law__Murdoch__Vuckic__Wallace_ ____________Miller__Clark________________ Have a feeling we will go back to the back three formation that worked so well against Hibs. Definitely think Vuckic will start too after his goals last week. Predictions everyone? I'll go 2-1 Rangers.
We have a game this Saturday at 3pm v Brechin City, and I expect to see Lee Wallace in his usual LB position. Our last game against Brechin saw us escape with a 4-3 victory, can't see that happening tomorrow. Another quality video, inspired. Bell Faure,Jig, Mohsni, Wallace. Aird, Law, Templeton. Shiels. Little, Daly. Macleod is unavailable. 3 nil to the Gers, Little, Daly and Shiels.
