East Stirlingshire Sell Out
Thrid Division gates have been boosted by Rangers fans
East Stirling host Rangers on Saturday at their temp home of Ochilview and have had to post the sold out signs already. Not only will they have a bumper pay day from those who are piling through the turnstiles but they will have some of their distant fans snapping up the chance to log-on and tune into the game on-line. The last remaining tickets for home supporters were sold on Tuesday. A delighted club chairman Tony Ford said: "There will be just over 3,700 fans at the game and the majority of them will be Rangers fans but we are delighted to have been able to sell out our own allocation. It means the boys will have as many people as possible cheering them on in black and white colours." The game has a 12.45pm kick-off to accommodate a live webcast throughout the UK and worldwide on RangersTV with Shire fans also taking the opportunity to watch the game live. Ford went on: "It is not just Rangers supporters who have been subscribing to watch the game as some of our furthest-flung fans have been contacting us to say they will be tuning in as well. It is certain to be a great occasion and we hope to be able to get the right result."
