OLD REIGATIAN 1ST XV

Welcome to the home of Old Reigatian 1st XV as we look ahead to an exciting 2014/15 campaign. This year sees the team embark on its 87th season of competitive rugby and it promises to be a historic year both on and of the pitch. The boys look to build on their encouraging finish of 6th in the London 2 South West league last year and gain promotion.

THE COACHING TEAM...

The 2014/15 season will be the second season under new Player/Head Coach Jonny Hylton. Jonny comes from a Professional Rugby background at the highest level playing for England 7s, London Wasps, Worcester, Cornish Pirates and Esher. He also knows what an honour playing for Old Reigatian RFC really is being a former pupil of Reigate Grammar School. He will be supported by new Forwards Coach and recently retired 1XV stalwart Mark Reid. They will be assisted by Jon Rayner as Head of Fitness who runs the highly successful M & R Gym @ Old Reigatian RFC.

THE SEASON AHEAD...

The 2014/15 season promises to be an eventful and difficult campaign with what looks to be a very strong London SW2 league with the likes of Farnham, Tottonians and London Cornish all worthy title contenders.  A successful campaign will be built on home success and with the clubhouse in full rebuild mould after the recent fires the boys hope it will spur them on to warm the hearts and minds of large, vociferous home crowds. A greater emphasis on the fitness and general strength of the squad should see Old Reigatian to be very competitive once more to challenge for the high honours. To that end we encourage any player or supporter, young or old to visit the club during this campaign and enjoy the Reigatian atmosphere. Let's all pull together and make it a GREEN and BLUE year...

Welcome to Old Reigatian RFC!
