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:

1st XV National 2 South (Nat 2 South)
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.


Club Membership Subscriptions 2019/20 Season

The Club, and the 1st XV squad, would like to thank all our members for the fantastic support you continue to give to the Club each season. The health of our membership ensures that all our teams perform both on and off the field of play, and now the process for the new membership submissions is open.  As an amateur sports members club we understand that we rely heavily on our membership to support our endeavours and we would also like to thank you in advance for the continued support you give this great Club of ours through maintaining your membership.  Membership fees are shared throughout all age groups and sections of the Club, and also go towards our infrastructure.  Its going to be quite a year with the move to the new facility and with our resent promotion into the National leagues, its an exciting and proud time for all of us.

We continue to push for donations to our Legacy Fund, which has the sole purpose of securing an extended lease to provide security for future rugby player generations to 2075.  Click HERE to find out more.  Any donations will be very much appreciate, and if you are able please sign up for gift aid, please do.  Legacy donations can be made via the Membership Form.

If you are unable to donate, but want to help at the Club, we are always looking for volunteers,  Please contact your team manager or a member of the Executive Committee and offer help.

We look forward to the new season with you.

Chairman’s End of Season Statement

What is now my 4th season as chairman , I cannot remember a season as memorable as the last one.  On the back of a fantastic season right across the club it would be easy to reflect on our successes on the pitch I’d like to take a moment to consider our health off it.

Our club philosophy is of inclusivity and engaging with the community through the schools and having more ladies actively involved with the club. This means having a club and behaviour within it which encourages this.
