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.


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.
