Welcome to the Thames Poly Rugby Club website

This is a club history of Woolwich Poly, to Thames Poly, to Greenwich Academicals, and gives:

  • Yearly details, with as many details and pictures as possible.
  • Player details and miscellaneous pictures.
  • Officers of the club and members of honour.
  • Some links, an address list to get back in touch, and somewhere to leave a message.

To move around the site, click on the menu options at the top, to go into each section, and click on further options as they appear on the left. You can also click on the RED text and small picture or graphic links throughout the body of the site.

Some years ago, Andy Wood had the idea of putting together a club history and writing a book. He set about trying to collect pictures, memories, statistics, etc., and asked Bill Hills to write about the early days of the rugby club. With all of the advancements in technology, Andy decided it would be easier to put it on the Internet! This also meant that someone else could piece it all together!

Well, a chunk of the history has been collected, and put together here. With your help, we can fill the gaps, so let me know who you are, tell me a story, and send me your pictures through the Messages section.

There is also a set of the final club rules, which most members probably never read (and possibly never saw), but which were followed to the letter when the club unfortunately had to follow its' winding up procedures.
