John Brown urges fans to support David Hagen testimonial

John Brown has urged supporters to turn out in support of old teammate and Motor Neurone Disease sufferer David Hagen in a benefit match this Sunday.

The Rangers Development Squad will face a mixed Hearts and Falkirk XI at the Falkirk Stadium. The match is to raise funds for Hagen’s continued care and treatment. David played for all three clubs involved.

John Brown, known as Bomber, has urged fans to make it along to support.

“Any Rangers fans in the area should get along because he was part of a great period in the club’s history,” said John. “The more punters through the gates the more it will benefit his family long term.”

David Hagen played with Rangers from 1992-94, during the 91AR years. He made 16 league appearances. He went on to sign for Hearts and make over 100 appearances for Falkirk.

It was old teammate Bomber who helped set the testimonial up.

“Alex Totten phoned me to break the news about Davie and I said I would put him in touch with the club and Stewart Robertson,” said Brown. “From there a game has been organised with Graeme Murty’s reserves to go on Sunday.”

Unfortunately TV scheduling means that Rangers will be playing Hamilton at 1.30pm on Sunday. David Hagen’s benefit match kicks off at 4pm.

The Rangers Hamilton match will finish at around quarter past three. Brown is urging anyone watching at home or in the immediate area to come down and support “a cracking lad”.

Motor Neurone Disease is a debilitating illness and David’s family would cherish the emotional and financial support. Please make the trip to the Falkirk Stadium if you can and make a difference to David Hagen’s life.

Kick off at the Falkirk Stadium is at 16:00. Admission will be via pay at the gate in the Main Stand only with the cost £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s.
