On Saturday 28th, 200 sat down to a great lunch made up of members, and friends of Old Wesley Rugby Club including many past pupils of Wesley College and invited guests. Speeches were made by Seapoints President and our President David Bursey enlightening us on how the Club is developing its premises and the success of the Club across the board. I met many Past Pupils and was delighted to be able to congratulate Alan Large and his squad and their win. Going forward we will be posting Old Wesley members our activities. We wish them well for 2016. Lynn McCrave

Fantastic result! Well done lads! ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations to Wesley College who won the LHA Schoolboys Senior Cup Final earlier today. In a very tight game it took a Dylan Cullen goal to secure the title for Wesley College in the final minutes of the match. Well done to both teams for a fantastic game and thanks to Andrew Groves & Graham Hohn for umpiring.
