Old Streetonians RFC is a rugby union club based in the Shoreditch area of London, UK. Old Streetonians are currently competing in Herts/Middlesex 1, coached by ex-Saracens lock David Bailey. The team colours are red and blue.


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.


Old Streetonians were admitted to the RFU league structure and are currently competing in Herts/Middlesex 1. The Onians were promoted for consecutive seasons in 07/08 and 08/09, reaching London 2 North East before being relegated in 2013. 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.
