Laura is a life-long Rangers supporter and is a season ticket holder whose commitment to fan representation is built on the belief that the best people to protect and rebuild Rangers Football Club after the events of recent years are those who care most about it – the fans.
She has worked in social care and admin roles, and been an office bearer in local political and community groups. She first joined the Club 1872 board in 2016 after taking part in working groups prior to the first elections.
In her current role as a director, Laura is involved in admin support and comms. Laura is a Club 1872 spokesperson.
After qualifying in Scotland he moved to London in 1991, qualified as an English solicitor and became a partner in one of the leading City of London litigation practices specialising in complex international litigation and arbitration. Acting solely for a corporate client base from 1991 to 2017.
Having retired from private practise in 2017, he now operates a consultancy business, head the Investment Committee for a leading international litigation funder and, in my capacity as a consultant, act as General Counsel for a high tech company which operates mostly in the United States.
His skills and experience that he has built up during his career can be of great assistance to Club 1872 at a pivotal time, where it is looking to grow into the largest shareholder in Rangers. .
From a Rangers supporting family. His great uncle, Neil McKinnon, played for the club in the post wars years and was I believe understudy to Willie Waddell. I have supported the club since a boy and first attended a match at Ibrox in 1967 against Hearts when Alex Ferguson was on the scoresheet.
James played at Ibrox in 1976 for Queen of the South reserves in a 7-1 defeat and was lucky enough to score their only goal.
In a more professional capacity, in recent times I had the privilege to advise, pro bono, the Rangers Supporters Trust in relation to its legal fight to prevent Ibrox Stadium being used as a security in return for loans from Mike Ashley. He also advised the RST generally in relation to other matters arising out of the administration of the club and is a life member of Club 1872. During this time he worked with Dave King, Walter Smith and worked extensively with Chris Graham.
After being part of the efforts to protect the club at that time, he believes that there is a need for supporters to retain a major shareholding in Rangers. It is essential for the long-term stability and prosperity of Rangers that supporters are never again in a position where they have no meaningful say in the key decisions affecting the club. Club 1872 has a wonderful opportunity to secure the club for generations to come and we look forward to him assisting us and making that a reality.
George has been a Rangers fan all his life and have attended matches both home and away for over 50 years.
He has held various positions in Supporters Clubs. For the past 20 years he has been the Club Treasurer of the Denny and District RSC and during this period our club has grown dramatically.
George is a retired Production Manager, having working for the one company for over 50 years.. He is looking forward to bringing his professional experience to the Club 1872 board to build on the already positive relationships he has with other Club 1872 volunteers.
His hobbies include Rangers, gardening, and is active in his local Church of Scotland. He also is a Volunteer with the NHS. As a retired person he has time to dedicate to Club 1872 and having done so as a working group member for some time now,
Success on the field should not mean a complacent support. He believe the only way to avoid this is to build up our shareholding through Club 1872. He sees that Club 1872 is the way forward. We have a voice which no can longer be ignored.
