Old Streetonians RFC is a rugby union club based in the Shoreditch area of London, UK. Old Streetonians are currently competing in London 3 North West. The team colours are red and blue. The club's zenith is generally accepted as the Herts / Middlesex Vase Final of 2015 when marauding second row Gary Hoban (of Leinster U12 fame) came on as a sub to fumble the ball over the line and nearly cost Old Street a famous victory.

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 North West 3. 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.
