Just to echo Seasider's post:

Info and Donations: Rangers Legends v Bury Legends Virtual Friendly for the Lee Rigby Foundation Trophy

It's great that we can actually watch as an Esports event as well...on all our various devices!

Even more important, for great causes, especially the Lee Rigby Foundation and whilst donations are whatever you can afford...quite a few are going for amounts that mean something, e.g. £19.87 (Lee's year of birth), £20.13 (the year Lee was murdered) or some date/number that means something to you/our clubs, e.g. £18.85 (the year we were formed)...you get the idea.

I've got paid today...so might even go for £47.87 (4/7/87 was Lee's date of birth). But there's no pressure...if someone can only afford a tenner or a fiver or a quid, that's fine. The match is on Saturday, 4th of July (Lee's birthday) at 3pm...

The Mother of murdered soldier Lee Rigby has told how Rangers fans have become “a second family” to her after her son’s death.

Lee's funeral at Bury Parish Church, with a packed Bury town centre (below)...it all fits man.

LEST WE FORGET:





I've donated £47.87 (4/7/87 was Lee's date of birth). I'm not posting this for any praise but to say I'm supporting 3 great causes:

The Lee Rigby Foundation (to support bereaved families of military personnel and purchasing static caravans to provide affected families with respite facilities); Rangers Charity Foundation (for education, employability, diversity and health/well-being in Glasgow) and Bury Community Society (to improve disabled facilities and other local community projects). We're not paying for 2 non league strikers with this!

All 3 causes have been massively affected by Coronavirus...so I'm proud to support and encourage all 3 causes.

Whether that be for underprivileged kids in Glasgow, disabled supporters of Bury or bereaved families of military personnel killed in action or murdered on the streets of Great Britain...like our local lad Fusilier Lee Rigby.

LEST WE FORGET & WATP​

You need to let bluefin221 know your selection as he requests
Finally what I need from you guys. I need you to pick your greatest ever Rangers 18, start with a formation best picks in each position for the first 11 and then 7 subs, these 18 players will get to play across the 3 games in a best of 3 format, bare in mind I cannot pick everyone's selections so will try my best to pick the most popular submissions based on each position and a formation that suits this.

Bluefin221 still needs help to find Rangers Legends
 
Unfortunately the Lee Rigby Foundation has now been dealt another blow. The memorial cup Facebook has been removed after it was reported by some crazy person for being Racist.
This game featuring Rangers Legends has helped raise the foundation valuable funds.
If you can help support this and the other great causes at this difficult time your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Bury AFC’s Shakers Community, the Rangers Charity Foundation (@RFC_Charity) and the Lee Rigby Foundation (@leerigbyfdn) are delighted to announce their collaboration in a virtual friendly on July 4th at 3:00 pm.

The virtual friendly will feature a Bury Legends team and a Rangers Legends team playing for the Lee Rigby Memorial Trophy.

Covid 19 has disrupted the fundraising efforts of all three organisations with their main fundraisers all being postponed indefinitely. Following some discussions between Bury AFC and Rangers, the virtual friendly was born and the monies raised from this will be split equally between all three parties.

Fans and supporters who which to buy a virtual ticket are being asked to pay what they can spare.



With the monies raised Bury AFC will be investing in improving facilities for their disabled supporters with any additional monies earmarked for other community projects.

The Lee Rigby Foundation will be putting their share towards the purchase of a number of static caravans. These will be available to families who have lost a loved one in military service and for Veterans and their families who need a break.

The Rangers Charity Foundation will use their funds to continue to deliver a diverse range of charitable community programmes from diversity and inclusion to Health and wellbeing, in conjunction with managing the Ibrox Community Hub.

A very worthy event, well done to all concerned, Thanks

Our goalkeepers announced:

Neville Southall: Picked up from non league football and went on to play for the great Everton team of the 80s and gain nearly 100 caps for Wales. Over 700 pro games. In his prime, recognised as the world's number one goalkeeper.

Dean Keily: Nearly 700 pro games, including being an Irish international. Saved a penalty v Watford away in the last minute, to gain promotion to the now Championship and send 2000 Bury fans mental. In the Social Club afterwards he said, "should I go to the left, should I go to the right...oh fook it, I'll go to the left!" A true legend.

Please remember that the Lee Rigby Foundation have lost their two biggest fundraisers this year due to COVID-19. One of them being the memorial match at Portsmouth. If you were planning on travelling to that game, please consider donating some of the cost towards the virtual game. It will make a difference. Rangers fans are the best in the world. Together we can all make this a huge success.

Just a gentle reminder that this virtual friendly is for 3 great causes, all affected massively by Coronavirus:

The Lee Rigby Foundation (to support bereaved families of military personnel); Rangers Charity Foundation (for various projects in Glasgow) and Bury Community Society (to improve disabled facilities). We're not paying for 2 non league strikers with this!

I'm proud to support and encourage all 3 causes. Whether that be for underprivileged kids in Glasgow, disabled supporters of Bury or bereaved families of military personnel killed in action or murdered on the streets of Great Britain...like our local lad Fusilier Lee Rigby.

DONATE HERE: For the Lee Rigby Memorial Virtual Friendly

LEST WE FORGET & THANKS.

Hi Shengus
Can you tell me how to put a picture on, then i can scare you with BELL, MCDERMOTT, DIXON, BUTLER, LUCKETTI etc
Cheers and thanks for supporting this brilliant event which is supporting the Rangers Charity, the Lee Rigby Foundation and the Bury charity


If It's just a photo from the internet it couldn't be easier.
Click on the photo icon at the top of your reply box (between the chain and smiley icons) and it will open a window. Go to your photo on the 'net and right click on it and "copy image address".
Just paste it into wee window you opened in your message.

If you need to take it from your own photo library on your pc/laptop it's a wee bit more timeous.
Let me know if you need to go through that.

I can't wait until The pretty boy assassin Charlie Madden is unveiled
And when the World's greatest midfielder is on display, the brilliant Colin Bell.
Bell is regarded as one of England's finest ever midfield players, being described by one commentator as 'the most finished article in the modern game'. Bell has been inducted into both the English Football Hall of Fame and the Manchester City Hall of Fame. In 1998 he was selected as one of the Football League 100 Legends
