Hemel Hempstead club Camelot are marking their centenary this year.

The club was formed in 1919 by a group of Old Berkhamstedians and in the years leading up the Second World War a great majority of players were old boys of Berkhamsted School.

After the war, the club reformed and in 1954 moved to their current home in Chaulden Lane, Hemel Hempstead.

The club now have six teams, some of which have names linked to the Arthurian legend.

Camelot have a number of activities planned to mark the milestone, one of which is a reunion of ex-players on Saturday, September 14, at the club.

The organisers want to get in touch with as many former players as possible, whether they can attend the event or not.

Those who have played at some time for the club can contact Robin Evans by emailing evansrob sue@uwclub.net.
