A successful start to our 125 Year Celebrations

The Club commenced their 125th Anniversary with over 150 people attending the launch on Sunday 5th January. All sections of the Club attended the celebrations, spanning a number of generations from Minis U.8’s, former colts, ladies and men senior players, through to Frank Cherrington, a formed prop forward, who started playing forward for the Club in 1946 and who celebrates his 90th birthday in June.

Club President KeithPlain cut the Anniversary Cake, which symbolised:

  • 125 year founding of the Town side
  • The Club’s membership of the RFU 110 years ago
  • 10 tenure at NewlandsPark
  • 40 year birth of the Minis & Juniors Section

  1. Great to see so many faces old and new at Newlands. As you can imagine the last to leave were the usual reprobates: Towner Snr and Jnr, John Woodward and former players, Mike Steele, John Wood, Mike Crisp, Matt Mudway, Paul Edwards.
