Eric Stephens (1950-56) was recently honoured by becoming President of Gloucester Rugby Football Club. This is a very worthy position for an exceptional player who has a lifetime association with this great club. Eric is also a very active Old Cryptian and was President of the OCC in the year 2011-12.
In the “Weekend Citizen” of 3rd August Eric is featured signing a special board which is located in the newly opened Gloster Boys Bar at Kingsholm – a focal point for anyone who has had the privilege to wear the cherry and white colours. Eric qualifies in magnificent style, having played in 221 Club matches in his long career for GRFC. At the opening ceremony, Eric paid tribute to the many people, including those on the Former Players Association, who worked to create the new bar with its memorabilia of past glories.
