Ex-England and Gloucester player Andy Deacon is leading the call to city rugby fans to encourage sporting memorabilia to be donated for a World Cup exhibition.

The former Kingsholm favourite, now Cinderford’s director of rugby, will join city council leader Paul James, mayor Chris Chatterton and World Cup co-ordinator Adam Balding by launching the hunt for new exhibits on Friday at the City Museum in Brunswick Road. It is being pulled together by local artist Russell Haines. It will feature portraits of national players along with memorabilia tracing the history of Gloucester rugby. Anyone who has any items that could be loaned for the exhibition – including uniforms, cups, programmes, signed balls or shirts, photos and match reports can contact museums@gloucester.gov.uk.
