The founding members of our club were former pupils and teachers of Queen Elizabeth's Boys School who returned from WW1, rented a field and played their first match again St Barts Hospital in October 1919. That makes us the oldest club in continual existence in the Borough of Barnet and in Hertfordshire.
To celebrate this extraordinary milestone, we are challenging St Barts to a rematch exactly a century after the original match was played. The attached flyer details our plans.
During the afternoon we will relaunch our coveted and historic kicking Cup started in 1961. Open to past and present players of all age groups. In addition to the main game we have a vets game, the
BBQ will be lit and the bar will be open. We are the press will also pay us a visit.
The evening will culminate in a spectacular firework at 7pm. We hope to see you there.
Please share this information with former players and friends of the club as we would love to see them there. They can join the club as a Vice President by registering on the website and buying a Vice President Membership in the payments section.
We could not possibly let a full century of rugby in Barnet pass without investing significant time and effort in writing the full history of our club. So we have done just that under the expert guidance of Simon Moy our resident professional author. The book will be available to buy on the evening.
