2. Memorial



"At the going down of the sun and in the morningwe will remember them"
It is with the greatest honour that we bring the history of those Wilmslow RUFC heroes, who gave their life in defense of our values, to the attention of the new generation. Players privileged to play at the Memorial Ground will remember them and the sacrifices they made for us.
