WE can reveal the new building is to be known as the ‘Terry Flanagan Clubhouse’, in honour of one of the clubs most successful products. After being part of a cup winning Rangers youth side, Terry went onto become our most capped international in the professional game. He represented his country at every level and made four appearances for the full Great Britain side, touring Australia in 1984.
Back at Rangers, Terry coached junior teams and led tours to Australia, Dubai and Norway. He served for a number of years as Chairman after Ronnie Hardaker passed away and remains heavily involved as Club President, organising the annual Burns Night Dinner among other fundraising events. In the wider sport he was proud to set up the Rugby League Cares charity which supports former players and was commended for that in 2015.
Terry said; “It's a real honour to have the club named after me and I am so proud if my association with the club since arriving as a 15 year old in 1975. In recent years I have enjoyed bringing great business people to the special place that is Rangers and I was delighted when one if my dear friends Bill Holroyd wanted to help with the club development. There is a special bond among folks at Rangers. We’ve always been a club that strive to do the right things by players and lovers of the game of league and long may that continue.”
