Club 1872 is pleased to announce that Craig Houston has taken up the new role of Development Manager for the organisation. Craig previously served Club 1872 as a Director, receiving the largest share of votes at the first ever Club 1872 elections. The Development Manager role will see him tasked with increasing awareness and attracting new members.
The Club 1872 Directors are delighted that Craig has accepted the offer to return to the organisation and believe that his experience and skill set will be a great asset. The Board wishes to expand and grow the organisation and this new role is part of many new initiatives being introduced and researched.
“Club 1872 is already the largest constituted body of Rangers fans and a major shareholder in the club. It can purchase shares and invest in projects that are beneficial to the Rangers community. Both these features should be viewed positively by fans, the club, and the PLC Board.
Rangers fans need no reminder of the club’s history since 2012 and Club 1872 provides a vehicle for fans to engage positively and have a say in any key decisions of major shareholders. The more Contributors we have, the bigger this influence will be and the more Rangers Football Club will benefit from that engagement.”
With a career in Sales Management, Craig is aware that Club 1872 must evolve as it grows:
“I am keen to develop procedures that make it easier and advantageous for fans to contribute to Club 1872. The true value of the organisation cannot be met until it becomes the norm for Rangers fans to also be Club 1872 Contributors. Recent history has shown us that our fans can influence change at our club and have an incredibly positive impact. Club 1872 can ensure a brighter, better future for Rangers”.
“It is easy to forget after occasions such as “55” and Seville that fans can and should play a part in making sure we do not return to the mistakes of the past. Genuine fan engagement can improve the decisions made by the custodians of the club and go some way to preventing a return to our darkest days. Club 1872 can provide that if we can further increase our membership. That will be my aim.”< Back
