A rugby football club is the team it is due to its members. There are the founding members, who gathered together, recruited, and set the culture and goals of the team. Then new players join, attracted by what's there and adding their own twist as time goes on. Former players retire or move away, leaving their mark behind. Eventually the old team stories are only told second- and third-hand at drink-ups, with those who lived them having moved on to other things. Culture changes, goals change - would those former players even recognize the current club?
Well, let's find out! Been part of the Ironsides and moved on? We miss you! Please drop us a line by joining our e-mail list and let us know how you are doing. We're building an Ironsides Alumni Association so you can share your Ironsides stories with the new members while we keep you up to date on the current antics. So please get in touch and maybe in a phase or two we can all get together and share those stories over a beer.
