St Marie’s Heritage Group – St Marie’s Rugby Players Heritage Event

Old Rugby PhotoRugby has played a huge part in the life of our town.

On Saturday 14th September (from 2pm till 4pm), the St Marie’s Heritage Group will be coming together with former parishioners, school attendees and fans of local history to reminisce and play tribute to the boys and men who played rugby at St Marie’s School & Parish in Widnes.

Did your father, brother, grandfather or friend play, coach or get involved with rugby for St Marie’s? If so, we’d love to hear your memories of them. Did they love playing rugby? What did it mean to them? What impact did it have on them as people? Who were the coaches? Where did they play? What did they wear?

Does anyone know of any parishioners or St Marie’s school attendees who went on to play for Widnes rugby league or any professional club?

Attendees are invited to bring along photographs or artefacts which will be projected onto a big screen so that they can enjoyed and discussed by everyone in attendance.

Whilst there is no charge to attend the event, there are only a limited number of places available. Attendees must reserve their place in advance. To reserve your place, please contact Matthew Roberts via 01928 592 405 or

Please note that Matthew will not be in work between Monday 29th July and Friday 2nd August.
