Did you play junior league with the Wauchope Blues?

Well, they are looking for you.

The popular Wauchope Blues Junior Rugby League Football Club will celebrate its 50th year in 2019 and there are plans underway for a reunion and gathering.

Club secretary Bonnie Marchment said planning included an event to be held at the Wauchope RSL on July 6.

"This will be an opportunity for old members to come and reminisce about the good old days," the club secretary said.

"This is an adults-only event.

"On the Saturday we are having a family fun day for the current players to celebrate. We hope that the group will allow us to have all of our teams play at home this round. 

"This would give our traveling guest an opportunity to come out and watch the Wauchope Blues Junior Rugby League Club players in action.

"We have a Wauchope Blues 50 year committee that meet to talk about this celebration and help organize this event. This is made up of life members, volunteers, and past players. 

"They are currently working on getting a list of names together of past member that has played in the NRL."

The club secretary said the organising committee wants to ensure the weekend is memorable for its former players and supporters.

We really want to make the day/night special and hope to have some great raffles, she said.

We are also in the process of creating a 50-year jersey that will be worn by our under 16.5s boys on July 6.

"This will be a one-off jersey worn once by the boys and then actioned off at our reunion. Only 20 will be made. They are inspired by the first WJRL jersey with the red V and the skippy."
