Club 1871

1871_logoClub 1871 is our non-playing members section or if you prefer our Social membership! Launched in 2006 in an attempt to re-connect with past players, officials and supporters it has grown year on year and gone from strength to strength.

Our monthly lottery draw (some of you may remember it as the 500 Club!) has given out over £12,000 in prize money since our re-launch in 2006, together with Six Nations match tickets.

More importantly the money raised from the lottery has allowed Club 1871 to carry out a number of important projects to preserve the history of our 140 year old club.

  • Restoration of the fire damaged Club President Captain’s Boards
  • Restoration of the Executive Committee Minutes Book dating from 1896
  • Reframing of a number of framed international & club shirts for display in the Clubhouse
  • Funded the research and publication of the history of our rugby club by historian Dick Tyson – Flair & Fire, available from the Club Shop now!
