The best way to keep up to date with Richmondshire RUFC


A season to be proud of at Richmondshire RUFC

1 year ago By Alyson Down

Richmondshire is on the rise and upholding the RFU values and creating a Rugby legacy that can last locally.

1st XV achieved promotion to Durham Northumberland League 2. Sadly the league title narrowly eluded our them but still a strong season with performance to be proud of. Won 18 lost 2 with an average scoreline of 49-7 with one game to go.

We have fielded a solid 2nd XV throughout the season for the first time in over 10 years and have also run out a Veterans side for several fixtures and tournaments.

A number of players who started in our Junior section have now begun to transition through to the Senior squads with dispensations for 17 & 18 year olds.
