Old boys getting back together

North Shields Rugby Club are holding an old boys’ reunion event on Saturday, January 16.

This is a chance for any former players and friends of the club to see the recent improvements made to the clubhouse at Preston Village and enjoy an afternoon of rugby.

The day will start at 1.30pm with some welcome drinks and a buffet before watching the club’s current first XV squad take on local rivals Whitley Bay Rockcliff in a Durham Northumberland Division 2 league fixture.

Then it will be back to the clubhouse for the reunion, organised by ‘Captain’ Bob Hopwood.

All former and current players are welcome.
