Senior Players & Supporters - Tour to Portugal

By Alex Smiddy

Second & final call for tourists to the Algarve

After the success of last year's tournament-winning trip to Malta, 30 tourists representing all senior teams are already confirmed for this year's tour. But due to public demand, we are doing a final call for those OAs who'd like to come on the 2019 tour to Portugal.

Everyone aged 18+ is welcome, including both players and non-players (though definitely keen for some more backs!). But waiting further may result in prices going up and the chances of securing a spot on the tour and/or in the same accommodation being lost.


We are entering the International Algarve Rugby Tournament which is an 8 team, 15 a side tournament. Old Alleynians last took part in this tournament in 2007 and it was superb fun. We will be playing at Loule RC’s grounds which is based near Albufeira. This takes place on the Saturday and there is an after match dinner laid on by the organisers.

We will be staying in Albufeira and as per OA tradition we will be near “a mile long street of bars, restaurants and discos and within walking distance of the beach”. We will also be venturing to the nearby water-park to aid the hangover recovery, and there will be plenty of ordered and disordered fun.


  • London Gatwick to Faro - Departure 11:50 Fri 10th May
  • Faro to London Gatwick Departure 11:25 Mon 13th May


Total payment including a contribution to the tour kitty is £400. A deposit of £200 is required ASAP to secure your place.


Transfer £200 to the below account - clearly referencing your full name so we know it's yours. But the second £200 will be due in February as this is when we have to pay tournament fees etc.

Account Number – 70147656
Sort Code – 20 – 55 – 68

Please also email the OAs tour organiser Jules Brincat to let him know you're paying:
