Philadelphia Whitemarsh Men

Philadelphia Rugby Club was founded in 1961 in Philadelphia. The Whitemarsh Rugby Football Club started in 1967 in Whitemarsh Township Montgomery County Pennsylvania.

The spring of 1985 brought the merger of the two clubs. Both clubs were seeing a decline in membership with Philadelphia having a secure pitch in Fairmount Park and Whitemarsh having a clubhouse with a club liquor license in Conshohocken and a dedicated coach in George Betzler. The decision was made! The officers of both clubs ran the club for the first year and Whitemarsh President, Steve Love made great strides in getting the new club organized. The club colors became red with two one inch blue stripes with the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia RFC and the Whitemarsh wallaby combined for the club logo.
