Founded in 1872, Southport Rugby Club is among the oldest clubs in the world, but today is a modern, vibrant and thriving Community Rugby Club situated on the Lancashire Coast.

Voted Sefton Sports Club of the year and Lancashire Junior Rugby Club of the year in 2016 we run 17 teams. This starts with 4/5 year olds in the U6s, through each age group to U18 Colts.

The Adult sides comprise men’s 1st 2nd and 3rd XV, a Ladies team and a Vets team the ‘Southport Shipwrecks’. The majority of this young team are home grown talent having come through the ranks of our youth setup.

Our fully RFU accredited Mini and Junior section, now comprises around active players and our coaches are all RFU qualified and DBS checked. We support the RFU ‘Kids First’ initiative with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment and encompassing the RFU core values. The club has a great family environment.

The club is highly progressive and with an army of committed volunteers and has seen huge growth over the last decade with massive capital investment, including new ‘state of the art’ changing rooms and ‘match standard’ floodlighting. The clubhouse has also been fully refurbished to a very high specification and not only provides great facilities to our members, but has become a valued local venue, providing facilities to the wider community.

We welcome all new members, male and female, old and young, experienced or beginner.
