Rowey’s Reflections

My association with Lymm rugby goes back to my teenage years when I played for the junior sides and eventually the colts. I switched my allegiance from  the round ball with Oughtrington Rovers to join Lymm Rugby club, where I played a few seasons for Gary Fletcher’s team, (Father of Adam, current Director of Rugby).

AN Oldpfartt

I came to live in High Legh in 1974, age 35 and watched a few games at Lymm, but had retired from rugby with a bad injury and unable to play.

Lymm historians may correct me but I might be the longest non-playing supporter, currently supporting as best I can.
