What a week that was.
Firstly the AGM was held last Saturday with the committee standing down and then being re-elected again, thanks to all the members who attended.
The Bear Pit opened up after the refurbishment during the close season. Special thanks go to Shuggie and Andy for all the work they put in, the place really is looking excellent.
There after followed an amazing game in the Petrofac Cup away to Hibs, under the cosh for the first 25 mins, Rangers ran out convincing 6-2 winners with the best football we have seen in the past 3 years. A rather exuberant party followed on thanks to Shug introducing 2 bottles of vodka shots !!! Lets hope that this season will see more of this and our return to the Premier League.
The 2015/16 Season club fees are now due, price remains the same as last year, 100 AZN for members and 50 AZN for overseas members.
Keys and Gray Sportsman Dinner, 4th September – Just a reminder to members to let us know if you will be attending before tickets go on general sale. All 2015/16 members will get a 10AZN discount.
