Our Story

Our rugby club has been in existence since 1861 and we have always provided sports and leisure facilities to the local community. Our latest project is designed to develop our facilities for our Minis and Juniors and Women's sections. 1599492658_d4725019-214a-4586-9604-d1af8d3bcf77.jpegOver the past 10 years we have gone from having less than 50 children training on a Sunday morning to having well over 300 training in all age groups from five year olds to eighteen year olds. When matches are on, we have over 350 children from all over the North West of England using our facilities.
We are proud that in just ten years we have gone from being the new kids on the block to an established minis and juniors section. Some of our players have moved from our junior section to play adult and university rugby with more than a few county representatives and an England Under 20's player. We've only just got started, but we need help to improve

Our Plans

Last year we developed a women's team who won their league and now compete in Championship 2 North. 1599492765_8247a79e-2995-4f59-9203-20303e4e7249.jpegThis means we need to develop our changing rooms and other facilities to accommodate our children's section as well as the increase in numbers of girls and women training. The facilities currently aren't up to scratch with Showers that need replacing, rooms that need new flooring and improved access for all members of our club. Walls have had to be taken down and walls have had to be put up. All of our labour so far has been volunteers who've given up their time to help their club. These volunteers have moved walls, replaced tiles and even put in a staircase so far!

We want to future proof our club. Bring in the community and help us grow so we can provide healthy activities and benefits to the wider community. 

As part of our future proofing our club we also want to put solar panelling on the roof of the main building and the changing rooms to not only reduce our running costs but also maintain an environmentally appropriate approach.
