It was a great game to watch, played in good spirits. The Old Pats boys enjoyed their first taste of league and, of course, it was a real thrill to run out at Kingsholm.
The Old Patesians Rugby Club, known as the Old Pats, is a vibrant community rugby club in Cheltenham. Leckhampton Hill provides a stunning backdrop for teams of all ages and abilities. The leading Cheltenham rugby club sits between Charlton Kings and Leckhampton.
Inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do and the driving force of our successes both on and off the pitch. Our club provides rugby for around 700 players of all ages and abilities. Which makes us the principle rugby club in Cheltenham.
We have over 100 adults from a social XV to the top placed league rugby team in Cheltenham. Around 360 8–18 year olds play with their mates at weekends (and tour at the end of the season!). And in our sister Tag club there’s 200 4–8 year-olds running around throughout the year.
All our players have the support of a community of volunteers. Team managers and coaches, club officials, family, friends, supporters and sponsors. If you want to be part of this community and you share our ethos for inclusivity you are very welcome. Whatever your aspirations. With or without boots.
