The ‘Wee’ Rangers

The Garelochhead Athletic Sports 1868

During our research we have came across quite a few reports (1873, 1874 & 1875) from the Garelochhead Athletic Sports. These were held annually on New Year’s Day and often read like a who’s who of the early Rangers. Our latest discovery from the sports takes us further back in time from the 1870s to the 1860s to see the kids that founded the Rangers as even younger kids!
At the time of the 1868 Sports the boys ages were –
Peter Campbell (6/3/57) was 10 years and 9 months old and Tom Vallance (27/5/56) was 11 years 7 months.
