  4. Join us on a journey of discovery back to 1872 when The Rangers were just the dream of a group of young kids who gathered on Fleshers Haugh. They had no ball, no football kit and used a bush on the Green as a changing room. Their Club, which they nurtured, was to become the world's most successful and it all happened on the streets of Glasgow. Our journey takes us to the area of Fleshers Haugh where The Rangers played their first ever match, we also visit Glassford Street, Union Street, Berkeley Street, Burnbank, Kinning Park, Craigton Cemetery and many other places of interest before finishing off our day with a tour of our magnificent Ibrox Stadium. During our journey we have a 30 minute break at the West of Scotland Cricket Ground in Partick which was the scene of the Rangers first ever Scottish Cup Final in 1877. It gives everyone a chance to unwind, grab a beer or soft drink and a bite to eat at a beautiful and historical setting. Adults : £19 Children (under 16) and Senior Citizens £14. Group discounts are available upon request. To reserve your seat just send an email to : thegallantpioneers@googlemail.com For further information phone : 0790 2855536 An insight into our research is here our website. http://www.thegallan...o.uk/index.html
  5. As we continue to promote and celebrate the lives of our Founders we’re delighted to announce a guided bus tour into ‘ Founders Country’.We ran our first ever Founders Trail to Garelochhead and Rosneath in March, and it was a huge success.

We will visit Bendarroch Park where our Founders ran in races against and with each other aged only 10 and 11 .They were also to return there during our early years with their newly formed Rangers team to participate in the Garelochhead New Years Day Games. We will also visit the homes of Peter Campbell and Moses McNeil and pay our respects at Moses final resting place in the churchyard at Rosneath. 14.00 Lunch and refreshments will be available at the Rosneath Castle Caravan Park.

  6. It was an honour to spend yesterday with you and your family. Please pass on our regards and best wishes to your Dad.
  7. When Davie Wilson stepped forward at the bottom of the Marble Staircase and offered his hand, the look on the Gentleman's face shot one of those chills straight up the spine that can't be put into words. It's Rangers .
  8. Just over a month ago we received a phone call from a Gentleman requesting 4 seats on the Founders Trail on Sunday 25th August. Within three days he'd rung back and was looking for 5, then 6 seats, he eventually settled on 7. '' It's a family day outing, i'm bringing them all '' he explained. The following day we received another phone call from his daughter who explained that it was her Dad whom i'd been chatting to. She went on to tell us that he'd been tragically diagnosed with terminal cancer. She said '' He's a huge Rangers fan and has drawn up a wish list of things he'd love to do , on the list is the Founders Trail''. She then informed us that his hero when a boy was Davie Wilson and was there any chance he could possibly meet him at some point in the future ? We contacted Jim Hannah at the Club and passed on all the correspondence that we'd received. Yesterday afternoon at 3.30pm the Founders Trail bus pulled up at Ibrox Stadium and there standing inside our magnificent front entrance was one Davie Wilson there to greet the Gentleman who'd booked the Tour for his family. The term '' Rangers Family'' rarely needs an explanation, one such occasion was yesterday afternoon at Ibrox Stadium.
  9. This Sunday we will once again be taking to the streets of Glasgow to celebrate our Founders with another bus filled to capacity. Would all who have booked please note that there will be a Founders Trail welcome desk available within the Ibrox Megastore from 11.15 prior to our 12pm departure from outside of the store. We will also give you as part of your travel packs, a voucher which entitles you to a 10% discount on any full priced item within the Megastore on Sunday. All travel details and future tour dates are here on our website. http://www.thegallantpioneers.co.uk/...Tour-2013.html

  15. Seats still available folks. thegallantpioneers@googlemail.com In 1887 the Rangers required funds to help with the move from Kinning Park to Ibrox. So the lads who had formed and nurtured their Club organised this concert as a way of raising cash. This certainly puts into perspective what's going on at our Club today .
