ONE of Lymm's former England international players was back in town on Saturday.

Nearly 100 past players attended Lymm Rugby Club's annual past players reunion staged around the first XV's home match against Macclesfield.

Among them was ex-England winger, Lymm Colt and first-team player David Strettle, who added a little stardust to the day.

Former Lymm High School student Strettle won three Premierships and the European Champions Cup with Saracens, while also having spells with Rotherham Titans, Harlequins and Clermont Auvergne in a 300-plus game top-flight career between 2002 and 2019.

Now living in Kent but with business interests in the north west, 'Strett' was keen to revisit his old club.

"I'm up here quite a bit these days so hopefully I'll pop in and see my old mates whenever I can," said Strettle.

Those in attendance enjoyed a buffet lunch, a beer or two, and an Irish Folk band after the match.

The atmosphere was described as 'buzzing' as old chums from across the generations got together for a catch-up.

"Delighted to see so many former players and the day was a huge success," said club president Neil Kelly.

"This has been an outstanding season for the first team squad and, although we lost out on the pitch on Saturday, we had some fun in the clubhouse."
