Calling all Past Players!!!

3 months ago By Charlotte Clynch

Help Wirral in our search for past Captains and players ....

This year is an important milestone in Wirral Rugby Club’s history as we have been at the Memorial Ground for 50 years. To celebrate this historic occasion, we are holding a grand reunion for all players from Wirral’s past who have made our club, what it is today. Join us on Saturday 14th April, for a full day of celebrations.

We have a number of special activities planned for the day including:

  • Collection of Club Memorabilia from across the last 50 years
  • Veterans game for the 50th Anniversary Trophy
  • Celebratory pre-match lunch
  • 1st XV vs. Rossendale game (Final home game of the season)

In order to make this event a success, we want as many past players as possible to attend. As the saying goes - the more, the merrier.

In order to contact as many past players as possible we are looking to reach out to each of our previous team captains, to see if they have the most recent contact details for themselves and other members of their team. These are:

  • 1968/69 – Nick Holdsworth
  • 1969/71 – M. Duggan
