The Veterans recently lost their RVS Community corner venue due to demolition of the market car park.

George Bennett, Chairman of the club, and Ian Clark, Secretary, said: “We are delighted to have been able to move to the rugby club. It serves our purposes very well and we are sure we will be happy at our new venue.”

Peterborough Rugby Club vice chairman Archie Bennett commented: “As a community club we are delighted to open our arms to such a prestigious organisation, and this strengthens our links with the city.
