Guys just a bit of background to this for those who dont know - Garry Lynch was a huge Rangers fan known the world wide, he followed Rangers at almost EVERY age group and produced match reports for the various fans forums. I grew up with Garry and he followed my playing career in the juniors which took a similar track to his sons Garry junior although i was about 10 years older. When he wasnt watching Rangers he would be at EK, Larkhall and eventually Cambuslang as bot Garry and i played with the same clubs overlapping along the way. He was a huge Cambuslang Rangers fan and when i eventually took over as Manager he was a great source of advice, occasionally i might not like what i was hearing but i knew it was forthright, honest and constructive criticism and occasionally complimentary :-) Garry passed away in 2009 and his funeral was attended by many Rangers staff past and present, which was a huge compliment to his status within Ibrox. The Lynch family and Garrys friends wanted to have a lasting tribute for Garry and a memorial raffle draw for Rangers Rising Stars was rolled out which raised a world record £45, 000 for a one off sporting raffle. Young Garry and I really wanted to do some form of memorial event, but never in our wildest dreams would we have envisaged the original 4 team tournament turning into an annaul event. It must be stated that Rangers have been absolutly terrific to deal with and have been only too happy to continue the event in Garrys memory. Probably one of the proudest moments for myself personally, outwith the game itself, was being on the pitch at Ibrox in the opening fixture a couple of years ago to present Rangers Academy with a cheque for £2000. It was a desire of the Lynch family that proceeds should be shared between Cambuslang and Rangers Rising Stars which we have continued to support through all previous 3 games. Every year the event seems to grow as those who attend seem to spread the news of a great family atmosphere all doing something we love to do and honouring the memory of a true gent and friend. This year will be no different, and starts with a 4 team 2003 tournament with Scotland BC (which includes no less than 5 Rangers kids) fresh from winning the prestigious Barca tourny (again very many thanks to rangers for allowing them to attend). Rangers Supporters BC, Drumsagard BC and Aston Villa BC. Finally thanks to everyone who has attended and a warm welcome awaits new friends, and i think its fair to say those involved really do mean the Garry is gone but will never be forgotten.
