Roll of Honour

IMG_3637The Beijing Devils are one of the most established rugby clubs in China, and we’re fortunate to have had a series of committee members, supporters and sponsors who have dedicated many hours of their time helping us to do what we do best. We can’t put their name in lights outside Tiananmen Square so they’re on the website instead – many thanks to everyone who works behind the scenes for the club.

Help us with the Honour Roll!
If you’re a former committee member and you’re name isn’t here, please contact us and help us to recognise everyone who has contributed to the club over the years.

Founding Members

Many moons ago, the Devils stalwarts listed below put aside their time and money to create a new home for The Devils at Purple Jade Villas. Unfortuantely this home fell victim to some less than honest Beijing planning rules and is no longer. However the club recognises this group as Founding Members and their contribution will always be remembered.

Adam Williams, Adrian An, Cathy Finch, Clinton Dines, Dave Goetz, Derek Palaschuk, Duncan Falzon, Emil Seyferrdt, Federico Caruncho, Ian Mercer, Jeff Davis, Jeremy Perks, Mike Patterson, Nick Jones, Patrick Healy , Peter Batey , Richard Price, Roland & Bonnie Evans, Stuart Leckie, Yoroi Atsushi
