Former players wanted for anniversary celebration

IPSWICH YM are appealing for past players to come forward and take part in the club’s 85th anniversary.

As a way of celebrating its special milestone, the club will be holding its fourth reunion dinner - something that has historically been every five years and attracts more than 200 former players.

Ipswich YM, formerly Ipswich YMCA, wants to hear from as many past members as possible for the celebration on January 20, 2011, at the Elizabeth Hotel, Copdock.

Founded in 1925, Ipswich YMCA RUFC played at Bourne End for more than 50 years. In 1988, it moved to its current ground on The Street, Rushmere, adopting the name Ipswich YM.

Anyone who used to play for the club and would like to meet up with old friends should contact Chris Peeke on 07860 453771 or Dick Mainwaring on 07742 371221.
