Our first President as well as founder of the club, Mr Martin Frost established the club in 1961. He named the club Glen Roses which was at that stage also the name of a judo club. The club colours are emerald green with a gold colour. In 1961 Mr Frost went to a Union meeting to represent Glen Roses. At that stage he was working for BP Oil Company. He had his company colours on which were green and gold. When the President asked Mr Frost what the colours of Glen Rose were, he very politely told the meeting “Can’t you see I’ve got it on”, and since then only our colours are green and gold. (Mr Frost could not remember the original colour). But today we are proud of our colour.
Glen Roses started off with a 3rd team and in 1964 got promotion to the Super League. Our club set a record in 1979, which must still be broken namely to win the League, Section K/O and Inter Union champs of champs trophies.
Glen Roses can also boast with her one and only SARU player namely Godfrey Thorne.’
Dr I. Jakoet our vice-President is also the SARU treasurer and Mr Neville Jonas is the secretary of Trasa.
