Sad News – ‘’Mr. Old Longtonians’’ Stanley Clews

With much regret we report the death of Stan Clews at the age of 87. The majority of current Longton Rugby Club members will know little or nothing about Stan. However, a decreasing number of older members will remember Stan as the towering figure in the early days of Old Longtonians RUFC in the 1950’s and 1960’s. He was captain in two spells for a total of at least 10 years over this period. Stan was a good player but his main strength was his charismatic and effective leadership. He played at scrum-half, an ideal position for him and the team. In those days the Club had no facilities and relied totally on school facilities. In these circumstances, the thing that allowed the club to thrive was the bond between the players and Stan’s leadership. The Sentinel’s rugby correspondent at this time, Ray Pardoe called Stan ‘‘Mr Old Longtonians’’ a title that was richly deserved. It was a major blow to the club when Stan left in the late 1960’s on his appointment as Head of a secondary school in Bedford. Fortunately, Stan’s departure coincided with an influx of talented youngsters including Terry Keeling and John Davis and the Club soon flourished again. We last saw Stan when he came up for a game at Roughcote, but ill-health prevented him coming to Trentham Fields which is a shame because he would have been delighted and amazed at what ‘‘his club’’ had... read more

Longton Ladies Success

Last seasons Staffordshire Ladies programme saw players from across the county participate in the top flight county program. This was a step up for a number of players, as the county program reached the highest standard to date. One player that made the most of their was Rachael Squires , from Longton RUFC. Programme manager Becky williams: ” the programme was a great success for the county and allowed us to identify some incredibly talented players within our clubs. Rachael squires had her talent nurtured by Longton RUFC, who did incredibly well in the development League. We identified Rachael as having massive potential last season and knew she was capable of so much more” This season has seen Rachael move over to Lichfield RUFC, who have two teams in the top 24 of the county. Not only has Rachael made selection but her hard work has paid off and she moves into the Premiership starting lineup. This weekend sees Lichfield RUFC play at home, their first home Premiership fixture of the season. What’s even better to hear is that it is on a Saturday. We would encourage all females both senior and junior to get down to Lichfield this Saturday for the 2:30pm KO. This is a great success story for Staffordshire county and a special thanks has to go to Longton RUFC for their assistance in pushing players to be the best they can... read more
