Welcome to Westcliff Rugby Football Club

– formerly Old Westcliffians Rugby Football Club incorporated 1922 – 

Westcliff RFC is a Level 4 rugby club that is a non-profit Community Amateur Sports Club whose members come from across Essex and further afield.  The members are from various backgrounds and are welcomed into an inclusive club environment where the key principles of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, and Sportsmanship are developed out in the fresh air.

Westcliff RFC Senior Teams compete in:

Mens 1st XV National 2 South (Nat 2 South)
Mens 2nd XV Shepherd Neame Essex Mens Merit League Division 1 (SNEML D1)
Mens 3rd XV Shepherd Neame Essex Merit League Division 4 (SNEML D4)
Ladies 1st XV National Championship 2 South East – East

We run Youth and Mini Teams for girls and boys from our Academy of Under 18’s and 17’s to our Under-6’s, and a girls Youth section called the Wildcats. We also run an expanding and increasingly popular Lion Cub section for children aged 2-5 on a Saturday morning.

The Club already benefits from excellent facilities but will be moving to brand new purpose-built facilities in 2019 that will match our progressive ambitions and goals for the years to come. Although we take great pride in developing players from within we are also an open and inclusive club that invites players of all levels of experience and ability to join us. If that sounds like you, we would very much like to hear from you and welcome you to The Gables.


Club Brochure

Passing of Keith Collins & Bob Moore

Keith “Killer” Collins died early last month in Southend Hospital, after a long illness.   Keith was an enthusiastic and powerful second row forward, playing mainly for the Lions and the A XV’s encompassing the sixties and seventies when the club was based in the London Road.   He was a strong supporter of the Old Westcliffian Association, and a very well-liked man, his courtesy title being rather tongue in cheek as he was of a gentle and kind disposition.

Lynda, Robert and Bob Moore (7 PARA RHA retd)

Bob Moore died last night, after a short illness.   A local fireman, Bob was a great club servant at Aviation Way over a couple of decades, and a regular front row forward for the lower senior sides, captaining the Extra A on many occasions and assisting wholeheartedly with club affairs off the pitch.  He was a big familyman, wife Lynda, son Robert and daughters Liz and Vicky, and he always had time for his friends.  Known for his razor sharp wit, general knowledge, stubborrnness and moaning. He will be sorely missed.

Our sympathies are extended to both families and we salute two fine club servants, both taken before their time.
