Welcome...

Annual Past Players' Reunion DAY
Saturday 14th December 2019

I would like to invite all past Rugby Club players, along with past and current Cricket players, to our Annual Reunion Day in the Clubhouse on the Saturday 14th December, commencing at 12 noon. It is always a fabulous event with many a tale to be told!! The 1st Team are playing Port Sunlight at home in a league game with a 2.15pm KO. A pre match buffet lunch will be served @1pm.

Hope to see you all on the day.

Best wishes.
Richie Beckett. President OPAL.

Fabulous News

The Club has received two extremely prestigious annual awards, one for the Rugby Club and one for the Cricket Club, during the course of 2019. They are both for being the 'Champion' club for Fair Play and Hospitality.

We received the first award from the Liverpool and District Rugby Referees Society at their Annual President's Dinner at Wirral RUFC in May 2019. The cricket award was from the Cheshire Cricket League's Umpires Association and was presented at the Annual Dinner of the Cheshire Cricket League at The Cresta Court Hotel, Altrincham in October 2019.

These are tremendous honours which have been bestowed upon our great Club and they are due to much hard work from the officers, and indeed players and Captains, of both sections.

Well done everyone and let's maintain our high standing with both rugby referees and cricket umpires.

Richie Beckett. President. OPAL.

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?
