Message from the captain.
“Mike Reason is taking on a huge ride for charity. Could we all share our support by sponsoring him. For those who have played 1st team in the last few years you will know the lengths Mike goes to every week putting out and more importantly collecting our kit – most of the time being the first at the game and one of the last to leave the changing rooms. As well as turning up to training to advise on law changes and organising BETHS sports hall in the winter.
Time to show our appreciation guys. Good luck Mike”
7.30pm Tuesday 29th June: full training starts
Lions games 7.00pm in the evenings starting on 7th July.
We’ll keep you informed about bar opening times, but the Fun Day will not now be on June 26th because the club has been booked for a wedding. A new date will be advertised.
Social rugby – no more before start of training on June 29th (unless I’m told otherwise)
We welcome new members. Are you a lapsed rugby player keen to get into the game again? Or a present player who has just moved into south-east London? Or someone desperate to escape the lonely world of Covid lockdown and join a ready-made social life again?
Come to us, join the craic, the hwl or the hygge – we’d love to see you.
Email: email@example.com – today!
We are looking for new players of all abilities and ambition to develop the strength of the club through all sides. We are particularly keen on attracting quality players who will increase our strength in depth at first and second team level to help us realise our ambitions of returning to the top tier of London rugby as well as going one better at Twickenham in the RFU Intermediate Cup.

The date of this photo is uncertain, but we do know some of the people in it so it will come from just before the First World War, round about 1912 when we had a pretty strong team. At the time, of course, we were the Old Charltonians.
The captain, holding the ball, is FR (Freddie) Roberts. He played half-back (scrum-half?) for Kent and also represented London against Paris that year. We cannot be completely certain but the player on his right is probably HJ Turpin, who also played for the county.
Roberts survived the war to be captain again in 1919. On his left is Harold Hollis who was in the Kent side that won the County Championship in 1923.
