ARDROSSAN RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB 1901
ARDROSSAN CELTIC 1 - ARDROSSAN
Last Saturday again (15 June 1901), another benefit match was played at North Crescent and a team now known as the Ardrossan Rangers which latter eleven include several capable players. The strong north-west breeze contributed to spoil the game which ended in favour of Celtic by one goal to nothing.
These reports contain the first mentions of Ardrossan Rangers since 12 May 1884. It is reasonable to assume that it was different from the Ardrossan Rangers Football Club founded in 1880.
