KRFC Player Recruitment and Retention

Would you like to play rugby for Kettering Rugby Football Club ('The Blues')? Looking for a new club or a new challenge?

KRFC are always looking to strengthen all senior, youth and junior teams and are always looking for new players. From complete beginners, those returning to the sport after a lengthy lay off as well as the more serious of players, are all very welcome!

The club regularly puts out four senior sides, Colts and of course Mini/Junior sides at all age groups:

The 1st XV has played in Midlands 1 for the past few years, finishing 2nd last season season and the side also won the East Midlands Senior Cup in 2015. Players from the 1st XV are regularly selected for the East Midlands senior and Under 20 teams in their respective County Championships.

The 2nd XV play in the East Midlands Leagues Premier Division. The 3rds and 4ths also play in the East Midlands Leagues. They both play a great standard of rugby in their respective leagues while still holding on to the social side of a drink, chat and a laugh after a game. Not that, that doesn’t happen in the other sides!

The Colts play in the East Midlands Colts League and enters the National Colts Cup competition, while the Mini/Junior section, one of the strongest in the Midlands, plays and trains on Sunday mornings.

Training for Seniors and Colts is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the season and starts at 7.15pm.

New senior players are always welcome to come along to training, but if you want to talk to someone before turning up then please contact Doug Bridgeman on 07739 867565.

Youth players can also just turn up for training or can contact Steve Wilson on 07970 890586 for further details, while Mini/Junior contact can be made through Mark Byers on 07879 890259.

All players of whatever age are more than welcome!
