Two Ex-Ranger Score.
Three former Rangers players suffered mixed fortunes at the sitting of Falkirk Burgh Licensing Court. Successful in applications were Alex Scott, at present with Falkirk, and former Ibrox striker Max Murray. But an applicationm by Alex Ferguson, Falkirk F.C’s top scorer this season, to open a public house and restaurant in Cockburn Street, Falkirk, was continued for one month. Scott won his licence for a new pub in the Tamfourhill area, despite objections from local tenants.
The Rev. James Robson, ministert of Camelon St. John’s Church, announced after the magistrates had granted the application that he would appeal on behalf of the tenants at the confirmation court.
