Fleetwood Rugby Club

The commencement of a Fleetwood Rugby Team goes back over 80 years, but it wasn't until 1932 that a club was officially registered with the Rugby Football Union as Fleetwood Old Boys (of Fleetwood Grammar School). The 'Old Boys' title was subsequently dropped in the early 50's.

Prior to the 1939-45 war the club used a number of grounds, but immediately resumed its activities after the war and settled at its present location with one pitch and a small clubhouse by arrangements with the landlord, the Fleetwood Cricket Club, who in turn lease the whole site from Wyre Council.

A five a side pitch is available to hire - please contact the club direct for details.

Their club house offers a friendly atmosphere for all your party needs be it a wedding or a birthday celebration. Not only do they provide the room but can also arrange the catering and DJ if required.
