Colin Bosley

Colin Bosley

Position: Centre

Colin Bosley, a three-quarter from Newbridge joined Cardiff in 1952/53
and gained his Athletic XV cap in 1953/54.
 After two years at Cardiff (during which time he scored 13 tries in 23 appearances) he joined London Welsh when work took him to London. He was a PE teacher at Marylebone Grammar School from 1956 until its closure in 1981. Colin Bosley played in several Welsh trial matches but injury just before or during the trial games probably cost him international selection.

After his playing career ended Colin Bosley continued to serve London Welsh as a selector and committee member and in honour of his service to the club was made a Life member of London Welsh RFC.
