Celtic F.C. for charities

November 26, 1888
It is not generally known that the object which the promoters of the Celtic F.C. had in view when they organized the club was “charity.” This is a laudable fact, and one worthy of all credence. In regard to this a few may be rather skeptical, after the manner in which the new combination was brought together.

However, one has only to go and see for himself that the priesthood have as much say in the matter as anyone else. They take a hearty interest in the welfare of the club. The new enterprise has had enough and to spare of outward opposition.

We trust that by good and judicious management they may outlive such, and become as charitable as they are prosperous.
