Blast from the Past

Ex Players lunch

Saturday 18th Feb saw over 100 ex players attending the annual ‘Old Surbs’ ex players lunch at the Cobham Curve.

Past players and Old Surbs came from all over the country, some attending for the first time in many years.

We were fortunate to have such an excellent guest speaker in the person of, ex player and Old Surb, Kenny Percival, who travelled from Ireland to attend this event and treated his audience to a most entertaining speech which recounted his time at the club under the captaincy of our own Chris Kearsey who we were also delighted to see in attendance at this event.

Tony Balkwill MC’d the proceedings with great good humour and welcomed, among others, James Rickard and Rob Salek, from principle sponsors, Mundays together with immediate past chairman, Graham Withers representing Tunbridge Wells RFC.

Following the league game vs Tunbridge Wells, President Lionel Frewin was delighted to present ‘100’ game ties to Old Surbs, Chris Kearsey and Jim Lofting who both played over 100 1st  XV for the club back in the 60’s and 70’s.

All in all, a great day at the club, enjoyed by all who attended.
