Rangers Relics

Golden Oldies, Over 35’s or ‘Rangers Relics’ Ipswich


Thinking of blowing the dust off those old tags?

Ipswich Rangers ‘Rangers Relics’ is the ideal opportunity for over-35’s to re-live the glory days of the game played in heaven “Rugby Union”.


About 5 mins before the match, we drink, say a prayer to the beer gods and then play.

We train and have a run on Friday nights at 6:30pm. We also have a family friendly touch game just about every Sunday afternoon from 4/4:30pm at the Rangers Clubhouse. This will start back just after the school term does.

Draws and Scores to be released at a later date

We plan to use this jersey stripe for the Pan pacs late in the year too.




In 2018 our old boys day will be tied in with our 50th year celebrations and is planned for July 21st of this year.






Last year the Ipswich Relics hosted a VRQ barbarians team on the Saturday afternoon prior to the Barbar and Pegg Cup games.

It was a great hit and we even had a little media show up too.

This year it’d be great if we can arrange the same to occur being the big 5-0 for the club.

Closer to the date I will know the planned game time – Allan Balfe
