The Founders Trail. A Thank You.

As the curtain draws on another Tour season we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who joined us on the Founders Trail and Ibrox Stadium Tour during the last year.

2015 saw us take more people than ever before around Glasgow on our journey of discovery.

We’ve made new friends and met some wonderful characters all brought together by the Rangers family.

A special thanks goes to Calum our bus driver, the staff at Partick Bowling Club, the Tour Guides at Ibrox and our resident gardeners at Craigton Cemetery who take great care of the McNeil and Struth plots.

We recently had a long awaited but very productive meeting with the Club regarding the Founders Trail and Ibrox Stadium Tour, the Rangers Graves Restoration Project and our Founders Presentation Events.

The Founders Trail will return in February with an expansion on the Founders Story and new locations.

Our first Tour dates for 2016 are as follows:

Sunday 28th February
Sunday 13th March
Sunday 24th April.

Just send an email to thegallantpioneers@googlemail.com to reserve your place.

Thank you.

Iain and Gordon.

The Founders Trail 2016 *DATES

Since 2009 we’ve taken over 5,000 people around Glasgow on the Trail of our Founders and through the doors of Ibrox Stadium , many for the first time.

Through the education process of the Founders Trail our objective is to safeguard our unique and wonderful Rangers story for future generations .

So let us Follow Follow in the Footsteps of our Founders.

The first batch of Founders Trail and Ibrox Stadium Tour dates for 2016 are as follows:

Sunday 28th February
Sunday 13th March
Sunday 24th April.

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 Glasgow 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 day begins at the Founders Trail welcome desk which is located within Bar 72 East at Ibrox Stadium from 11.15am on the day of the Tour prior to our 12pm departure from outside of the Ibrox Megastore

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 Partick Bowling Club which is in the shadow of the historic West of Scotland Cricket Ground 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 : £22
Children (under 16) and Senior Citizens £16.
