With the 1st team having a bye in the Intermediate Cup, why not come down on Sunday to support Blackheath Ladies.
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.

As a community club we offer our coaching services to all our local football-orientated schools who wish to introduce rugby to years 7 and 8. This is becoming very popular, with five schools already involved taking up each weekday afternoon and several more wanting to join up. All coaches are being paid by the club. If you wish to support this success story by either coaching or sponsoring, or you are a school who would like to take up this opportunity, please contact us.
Club training is on Thursdays 5.30pm to 7.30pm. For further information please email Doug Hursey, email@example.com or see our Youth Information page.
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.
