Broadstreet RFC in Coventry are to recognise the anniversary of 40 Years of Colts rugby played at the Coventry Rugby Club. Broadstreet a rugby club established in 1929 formed by former schoolboys of Coventry’s Broad Street school with the help of headmaster Pop Suddens are having a former players Luncheon on Saturday 4th December 2010 with an aim to hosting as many of their former colts rugby players and coaches as possible. The Lunch starts at 12:30 prior to the National League 3 Midlands first XV fixture against Peterborough RFC. We are especially keen to identify and contact players in the attached photograph taken over 40 years ago

Broadstreet RFC are currently sitting in second place in National League 3 Midlands at level 5 of the English RFU structure. They run 6 Senior sides every Weekend including 4 senior sides, 1 Colts level under 19’s and One Junior Colts level under 17’s at their Ivor Preece Field ground. The colts and junior colts teams are a vital supply of new players to the senior sides and to recognise the importance of the Youth rugby development Broadstreet wish to highlight the success that colts rugby can bring to the club.

The former players lunch is an annual event at Broadstreet, however never before have we attempted to bring these former players together from the former colts players. Colts rugby is played on a Saturday afternoon with all players aged under 19 years of age.

Club Chairman Richard Skene is quoted as saying ‘I am looking forwards to getting together with the colts team which I grew up playing rugby with, some of whom we haven’t seen in a long time’

The players Luncheon is on Saturday 4th December 2010 and starts at 12:30 PM with a two course lunch Tickets are £15 each and available from.
