"As a town with Rugby at its heart I am extremely proud that Whitton now has its very own rugby team, and even more so that I have been able to be a part of its creation."
"Whitton Lions is a new club created for the community and I hope over the coming months we can see many more people from Whitton and beyond come down to the Old Latymerians Sports Ground to play and support our new club."
Notes to editor
Whitton Lions RFC was set up by local Whitton Councillor Gareth Elliott and local resident Aidan Potts. It plays at the Old Latymerians Sports Ground in Whitton and was recently affiliated to the Middlesex RFU in October.
Open to all players over the age of 18 and of all abilities the club is particularly keen to introduce non players to rugby and to reintroduce those that have not played for a while to the game.
