Ealing Rugby: Respice Prospice

Respice Prospice is the motto for Ealing Rugby. It means "Look to the past, the present and the future". Here is the history of Ealing Rugby, from its beginning in 1869, to its entry into the RFU as Ealing Football Club (RU) in 1871, to the present day as Ealing Trailfinders RFC and sister club Ealing Trailfinders 1871 RFC.

In The Beginning

The Middlesex County Times newspaper reported that Ealing FC played their first match on Saturday, 6th November, 1869 on Ealing Common against the students of Hanwell College. Ealing won by two goals and "several" touchdowns. It is not clear from the report whether this was Ealing's first match or the first match of the '69-'70 season.
