PAST rugby members gathered together and shared memories as part of a reunion event.

The second past players’ day took place at Llandudno Rugby Club on Saturday, October 26.

The day celebrated former members who had hung up their boots.

As well as food, attendees enjoyed looking at old photographs, having a catch up with old friends and looking through memorabilia.

There were also some speeches.

Robbie Shields, Llandudno Rugby Club chairman, said: “We had great attendance once again.

“It was nice to hear all the old stories of when we played the North West teams and not just North Wales team.

“It was great to see Brian Baster, ex-head of the RFU at Twickenham who played for Llandudno 1958 to 59.

“Also Dave Gillen, one of the originals who remembers playing at the Conwy Morfa ground when the club was formed, attended.

“A great day was had by all.”

Llandudno rugby club was established in the early 1950s.

In 1952, John Kidson arrived from Liverpool to work in the town and was amazed to find that there was no local rugby club.

In a few months he had made enough friends in his new home town to form the first ever Llandudno Rugby Club, which commenced playing at the beginning of the 1952-53 Season with R E Williams - the first ever Club captain.

From the beginning of the 1953-54 season the club were established on its first ground on Conwy Morfa.
