Happy Birthday Rockcliff!

By Andrew Sugden

Your club is 130 years old today!

“The proceedings were most enthusiastic”

Not long now until the 2017/18 season begins and worth remembering we are standing on the shoulders of giants.

Your club - the one that's produced England captains, Lions tourists and a team that beat the Barbarians - was founded 130 years ago today on Wednesday, 17 August 1887 when:

"At a large meeting held at Landreth's Hotel [now the Victoria], was resolved to re-establish The Rockcliff Football Club. The proceedings were most enthusiastic and the club commences with a very considerable list of members."

And 130 years on, we'll be keeping the proceedings most enthusiastic: Happy Birthday Rockcliff!
