Rugby’s senior football club was formed by a group of New Bilton teenagers. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first ever competitive match played by Valley Sports (now known as Rugby Town FC) we will showcase memorabilia from its history, kindly lent by the club. Featured will be items from their FA Vase victory at
Wembley Stadium on 30 April 1983 and profiles of the manager Jimmy Knox and goal scorer Ian Crawley.
