Background to Our Club.

RED HAND AND THISTLE RSC

CARRICKFERGUS

The Red Hand and Thistle RSC is a club formed by a group of friends, who after becoming increasingly tired of Day Trips to Rangers games, and going to games with total strangers sharing coaches etc, they felt it was time for a change of tact, several guys decided to sound out others about the idea of forming "our own wee Club".

This was met with positive replies, and rather than creating a monster, Members agreed to restrict the Membership to 15, the present Membership.

It was also agreed to use the Club as a vehicle also to explore our own Protestant Culture, should it be involvement with Ulster-Scots projects, Co-operation with the Loyal Orders or paying homage to the Burial Grounds of Ulsters lost Generations in Northern Europe, members have expressed an interest in exploring these Avenues.

Members have all worked hard to establish this Club in a short term, the reward for such endeavours will result in Flying to trips, staying in decent Hotels etc, the money Members of this Club raise will be spent by the Members!

We hope that you enjoy your visit to Our Site and ask that you leave a message on our guestbook, and dont be too long 'til your back again.

We Welcome the Chase!

"To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him.
Our very success, gained you will agree by skill, will draw more people than ever to see it. And that will benefit many more clubs than Rangers. Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase. It is healthy for all of us. We will never hide from it. Never fear, inevitably we shall have our years of failure, and when they arrive, we must reveal tolerance and sanity. No matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger because of the trials to be overcome. That has been the philosophy of the Rangers since the days of the gallant pioneers."
