Home Grown since 1897

Eccles RFC are ambitious, progressive, inclusive community club. We pride oursleves on offering Rugby for all.

The club currently has over 300 registered active players and fields 16 teams; four Senior men’s, Senior Ladies, U18 Senior Colts, U18 Girls, Juniors from U7s-U16s. We also offer Walking Rugby and Touch Rugby. 

All work in running the Club, including maintaining the grounds and clubhouse, along with coaching and administration, is undertaken by volunteers, with only paid bar staff.  

The Club’s philosophy of developing its youth players and playing facilities, has led to National, North and County representation at most levels. Whilst the Club is proud for those players with the highest abilities to move on to the Premiership and National Leagues, our ambition is for the high standard of Home-Grown U18s that stay with us, will lead to our Senior teams rising to the highest possible level for an amateur club.

Our excellent facilities include a gym with both weights and cardiovascular machines. We also have a floodlit, state-of-the-art 3G artifical turf all-weather training area (no more ankle deep mud training sessions during the winter months!).

All new players, regardless of ability or gender, from novice to seasoned campaigner, are welcome. Contact details for each team can be found on the relevant pages.

  • Mens, Ladies and Colts training is Tuesdays & Thursdays, 19:00-20:30pm.  
  • Junior training is Wednesdays 18:30pm- 19:30pm. 

"Labore Omnia Florent" as they no doubt said in ancient Eccles.
