Guernsey Rangers were formed in October 1893. The 5th Battalion of the Royal Fuselliers were based at Fort George and managed to get two teams together. The first time a football game was between the Army 1st team and Rangers on 5th October 1893 The Army won 4-1. This continued between the 3 teams until February 1894 and on that date the Army and Rangers decided at a meeting to form the GFA. They also decided to play for a Cup which several members donated money towards. As the person who put the most in was Jurat Priaulx they named it the Priaulx Cup. After that other teams started to join and it all went on from there. Now with Rangers has a thriving minis and youth section as well as 4 Senior teams.
We have won the Priaulx Cup many times as well as the Upton cup against the Jersey League champions.
