Past Market Rasen and Louth Rugby Club Presidents enjoyed a pre-match luncheon before the 1st XV’s 48 -7 victory against Huntingdon and District in the Midlands 1 East league fixture on Saturday.

Organised by Peter Dixon, the gathering spanned 46 years of the club’s 63-year history, from Mick Graves who held the post in the 1967/68 season, to the incumbent President Chris Miller.

The catering was courtesy of Mason Cole who held the post from 1994-1997 and whose son Oliver is a key player in the existing 1st team. Thanks must also go to Jess Gaughan who assisted with the event.
