Newark Rugby Club celebrates 103rd birthday
Newark Rugby Club is looking forward to another successful season as it marks its 103rd anniversary.
The club was formed the year after the end of the first world war in 1919.
A club was formed at a meeting at The Magnus School, which set the subs at five shillings a year and the club adopted the school's colours.
"We owe a significant debt of gratitude to the previous custodians and members of the club for their tireless efforts to keep moving our club forward," said club president, Tim Barker.
"We take this opportunity today to sincerely thank the people responsible for creating, sustaining, and growing our wonderful rugby club, which we continue to enjoy today."
Barker highlighted the breadth of the club from the success of the first XV to the youth and girl's sections.
"I'm looking forward to another successful and enjoyable season at Kelham Road," he said.
