History[edit]

Old Streetonians RFC was formed in 1990 on the suggestion of the local patrons of the Bricklayer's pub in Shoreditch. The first game was a friendly played on Christmas Eve with the only try scored by 'Heroin Addict' George. Following this inaugural game, a friendly fixture was played against UCS Old Boys where the team name, Old Streetonians, was first used.

Each year the team holds the Denise Vinyl Cup before Christmas, a friendly game played with mixed teams made up of all of the players in the club.

Current[edit]

Old Streetonians were admitted to the RFU league structure and are currently competing in London 2NE. The Onians were promoted for consecutive seasons in 07/08 and 08/09. Old Streetonians also put out a 2nd XV and 3rd XV, competing in the Middlesex Merit Table.

Old Streetonians play their home matches at Hackney Marshes and train on Tuesday evenings at Haggerston Park.
