The President's Welcome
It gives me great pleasure as President to welcome you to Imperial Medicals RFC website

Imperial Medicals was formed in 1997 incorporating the Rugby Clubs of the former Charing Cross, St Mary’s and Westminster Hospitals Medical Schools. These former clubs with outstanding traditions, extending back to 1865 have a glorious record in the United Hospitals Cup, the oldest rugby cup competition in the world. Since their inauguration, Imperial Medicals have won the UH cup in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002 and are the current holders winning in 2003, continuing the success of their former constituent clubs.

Imperial Medicals play in the National League in London 3 north west. Last year we finished mid table after a very steady season. We also play in the British University Students Association ( BUSA) leagues and last year one promotion to the BUSA Premiere League South. We look forward with anticipation to pitting ourselves against the best university rugby sides in the country.

We are a friendly undergraduate and post graduate club that provides a happy "home" for our students - male and female teams, together with non-playing supporters and encouraging family, friends and parental support. The club is strongly supported by former players, Consultant Medical staff and GPs in West London and also by Siemens Medical Solutions, in a number of tangible ways. This results in our students gaining encouragement, pastoral and career support. We are also fortunate to have professional coaching under the keen eyes of former England International, David Rollitt BSc. DLC (England Divisional Coach) and Gregg Hamilton-Eadie (Scotland under 21, Middlesex Coach).

We intend to continue to expose our players to our traditions and experience of International tours. We had a very successful tour of South Africa in 2001 and have a plan to tour Canada in the summer of 2004.

Medicine and rugby are a "way of life" for life. We encourage compassion, balance and humanity as essential ethics together with commitment, resilience and a team ethos. We welcome all new and potential students to our club.
