Roma Cities reunion

THE Cities Rugby League Club in Roma is planning a huge reunion to celebrate more than 100 years of achievement.

The junior club of Queensland legends Arthur Beetson, Darren Lockyer and Wally Fullerton-Smith will hold their function in Roma on the weekend of October 4-5, 2014.

Celebrations include a big dinner in marquees on the club’s home grounds which will cater for an expected 700 former and current players, officials and supporters.

The Gladiators have been a part of the sporting and social fabric of Roma since the first team took to the field in 1912 (see photo).

With more than 20 First Grade and numerous Reserve Grade and Junior grade premierships in the trophy cabinet; Cities is the most successful club in the history of Roma football.

The teams in Blue and White have proved to be very durable and resilient and have survived numerous other clubs that have come and gone over the past century.

All those who have a share of Cities’ history are urged to make contact and head west in October.
