Swan Road, Lydney, United Kingdom
3 Swan Road Lydney England GL15 GB

It all began during the annual dinner of the Lydney and Aylburton Cricket Club held on Friday the 28th of September 1888. A group of those present expressed a desire to play the “winter” game.

A meeting was organized by Mr F A Fream for Thursday the 11th of October 1888. The Lydney and Aylburton Rugby Football Club was formed and F A Fream elected captain. It was also decided that the Club would play on Mr Courteens field in Newerne.

The first game was played at Lydney on the 22nd of November 1888 against Coleford who won by 3 tries and 1 conversion to nil. In those days a try was 1 point and a conversion 3.
