Old Ashmoleans RFC are based in the Southgate area of North London. We were formed in 1962 and this year is a landmark year as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We started initially with 12 members playing matches mainly against the lower sides of the neighbouring clubs. We have had a very cosmopolitan mix of players in our 50 year history which has included a very sizeable playing contention of English, Scottish, Welsh, Venezuelan, Jewish (Glenn Shaw and Andy Lebe representing the British and Irish Zions in the Maccabi Games) and Irish players as well as a large Lithuanian contention and a very large South African contention. The most successful year in our clubs history was 2009 which saw our 1st Team win the Herts Presidents Trophy Title beating Datchworth in the Final, Our 2nd team came runners up in the Merit Table 1 Cup that year losing in the final to Hertford, whilst our 3rd team won the Merit Table 6 plate competition beating Hackney in the Final and our sevens reached the semis of the Hertfordshire annual tournament, which we won the year before. Also the previous year of 2008 saw us reaching London NW 3 having been promoted 4 seasons in a row (our highest position in our clubs 50 year history). We have also had great success with the Hertfordshire County Side too, with Old Ashmoleans fielding 4 players (Nico Burger, Johan (Dronkie) Van Dyke, Carl Buckland and Ryan Taylor). We have since suffered a down turn in fortunes having being demoted in the last two seasons and having lost a few of our key players, we are now playing in Herts / Middx 3 Currently we are in the middle of a major recruiting and promotion process in order for the club to grow and return the heights of 2009 and beyond where we belong. As a result the 2012/2013 season looks set to be our biggest yet with plans to mark our 50th anniversary celebrations by organising events to promote the club within the Local community. We are also making plans to attend a pre-season rugby tournament in Co. Mayo in the West-Of-Ireland in Aid of 4 Cancer Charities from the British and Irish Isles, The Irish Cancer Society, Cancer Action Muigheo, Cancer Research UK and Leukemia Lymphoma Research. We currently run 2 sides plus the occasional Vets side and enjoy playing good rugby with a lively post-match social life. We welcome players of all standards and supporters alike and look forward to greeting anyone interested in joining our successful and friendly club.
