Then Chairman Lubbe Snoyman and Syd Chaitowitz were among the original rebels and they celebrated the start of the professional game by being the first winners of the National Cup.
That team included those great veterans Morrie Jacobsen and Mannie van der Merwe. After their first success little came their way but things got brighter when they acquired the relegated Johannesburg Ramblers club and got players of the calibre of George Adelaine, Bob Davies, Ray Williams and Reg Randall.
Later they bought from overseas Jones, Forster, Des Anderson and Blanero and with manager coach Alec Forbes signalled their success by winning the U.T.C. Bowl in 1966.
Their first home was at Wembley Stadium but they moved over to the Rand Stadium in 1965. Rangers were an extremely popular team and over the years they gained many supporters in Johannesburg and the rest of the country.
