Hi Everyone. My name is Alan Rivers and back in 1968 I was ask to join Rangers F C in Johannesburg. Their home ground was known as the Rand Stadium and I found it an excellent place to play football. In the early months of my time with Rangers I was invited to the Chairman’s office (Mr Sydney Chaitowitz)  who asked if I was settled in Joburg and enjoying my football. To say I had a fantastic time with Rangers is an understatement. I will always remember him having the foresight – saying to me that one day South Africa would host the World Cup Football Finals. I left his office that day wondering if  that man’s dream would ever come true.

Well South Africa – ENJOY THE WORLD CUP – because I know of one man who would…

Best Wishes

Alan Rivers, Rangers FC
