Rugby Training

The much anticipated early start to the Rugby season, with the preliminary round of the Cheshire Plate away to Holmes Chapel, did not go ahead last Saturday as planned. Our hosts decided that their pitch was unplayable and, after refusing to relocate the fixture to Holm Lane, they conceded the game to us.

Many of our players took advantage of the free afternoon to watch a dominant performance by Oldershaw in beating Prenton in the other preliminary game and so review our opposition for round one proper of the competition, scheduled for 3:00pm this coming Saturday, 25 August at Belvedere Park, Wallasey.

Let's have a good supporting crowd there to cheer on our team for the first competitive game of the season in advance of our first home league game of the season against Mossley Hill on Saturday 1st September at 3pm.

Based in Oxton in Birkenhead on the Wirral Peninsula in the North West of the UK, the Association runs cricket and rugby clubs from its Clubhouse in Holm Lane, Oxton, based at the HM Curphey Memorial Ground.

The Association welcomes enquiries from anyone interested in starting to play cricket or rugby, as well as from existing players of all standards and levels of experience who would like to join us. We have a thriving Junior Rugby section that covers Under 7s to Under 15s.

In either case, simply contact us for details of our teams, facilities and membership. Whether you live locally in Birkenhead or Wirral, or further afield, we'd be pleased to hear from you.

Although Rugby and Cricket are played at different times of the year, training for both sports continues through the close seasons. If you're thinking of getting involved for the first time, why not try some out of season training?
