I AM hoping to make contact with as many ex-rugby players of York St John’s as a new Old Johns Rugby Club has been founded.

The Old Johns Rugby Club is dedicated to building a family of Old John members focused on the creation of a community of life-long friendships. These friendships can maintain and build traditions for the future, not only within the Old Johns Club, but also through our foundation and its work with children from a challenging background.

The vision is to use our camaraderie, expertise and passion for rugby to help to create a thriving rugby club and foundation.

Any Old Johnsman from any era can contact me for further details or can visit the website oldjohnsrugbyclub.com and join direct.
