St. Pats school colours
Does anyone out there remember Pats school rugby colours ?
Funny what you think about on lockdown. Been watching rugby on u tube, and can remember St. Williams in green and white hoops (?), but cannot for the life of me recall Pats colours.
Can anyone help a decrepit old Wigginer ?

I think thats St. Pats rfc. Its the school colours I was trying to remember. There is a black and white photo in " sports ", showing light shirts with a darker horizontal band. Does that ring any bells ?

The one in the sports section is St Pats RFC, second row left. Grand slam, showing Maccy and the junior school team. Its bugging me that I cant remember my old schools colours. Roll on the end of lockdown !

If you go to albums, then sports, then scroll to St Patricks RFC, Photo number 17, bottom left, is the 1968/69 school team with Mr Hurst, they're in dark shirts.

Got it. Thanks for that, that is the team I remember. When this thing is over, I will treat myself to a black jersey for old times sake. Thanks again, good fun this trip down memory lane.

hilly, there used to be some old shirts displayed in St Patricks rugby clubhouse, I can't remember if there's any school team shirts though.

I remember playing against St Patricks school rugby team in 1953 and they definitely played in black shirts.

I think John McDermott was the teacher and referee.

It more than likely would have been John McDermott, he was rugby mad.
