Welcome to Westcliff Rugby Football Club

– formerly Old Westcliffians Rugby Football Club incorporated 1922 – 

Westcliff RFC is a 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:

1st XV London & South East Premier (L&SE Prem)
2nd XV Shepherd Neame Essex Merit League Division 1 (SNEML D1)
3rd XV Shepherd Neame Essex Merit League Division 4 (SNEML D4)

We run a ladies section, Youth and Mini Teams at every age group from our Academy of Under 18’s and 17’s to our Under-6’s. 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.



Westcliff RFC executive committee are pleased to announce Ben Dane as the new club captain.

The executive committee would like to take this opportunity to thank Adam Blanche aka “Blanchie” who is stepping down from the role, for everything he has done as club captain, including being one of the instrumental people setting up our very successful Lion Cubs. Blanchie will continue to be involved with the ever growing Lion Cubs and next seasons U6’s.

Please join us in congratulating Ben in his new role as Club Captain, and again thanking Adam for all his efforts and hard work.
