Two surviving members of the first Old Crescent RFC team to play Dungannon RFC in Dungannon in 1955, Gerry Clancy and Mick Manning, were guests of honour at the pre match lunch before the Old Crescent v Dungannon UBL clash in Rosbrien last Saturday, which Old Crescent won by 38 points to 20. Sadly, a third member of the 1955 team who was due to attend the lunch, Jim Roche, passed away suddenly a week ago.

Pictured at the lunch were, l-r, Roy Campbell, President, Dungannon RFC, Mich Manning, Gerry Clancy, and Pat Monaghan, President, Old Crescent RFC.
