It was a weekend that went down in the history books. Last month Rangers Football Club celebrated their 125 year anniversary in style. Whilst they had their end of season presentation dinner a week earlier, to which we were invited to photography services, last weekend Guernsey played host to the Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment, also known as The Tigers. Rangers were keen to have a video and photographic record of their visit and employed On Screen Creations to capture their weekend of events. This included a trip to Castle Cornet to fire the Noon Day Gun, a visit to the South Coast where they payed tribute to Lt. Hubert F Nicolle, from the Royal Hampshire Regiment who was the first commando who landed on Guernsey by submarine, at night, at Le Jaonnet Bay on July 8th, 1940. The team then hot footed it over to KGV Memorial Playing Fields for a warm up ahead of their competitive fixture taking place the next day.

On match day The Tigers’ Free Fall Display Team dropped by to deliver the match ball so that both teams could get underway. The 90 minutes wasn’t enough time to split the two teams who both managed to put a goal past each keeper. Penalties decided the winner on the day, which was the visitors 11-10. Hundreds of spectators lined the touch line at KGV to watch this historic match being played out.

We provided video and photographic coverage of both days’ events and were pleased to have received such positive feedback from their committee after they reviewed the first draft, and we are pleased to be able to include the video for you to watch below.
