East Grinstead RFC are recruiting for a new season ahead and launch a new film showcasing senior men’s rugby and the club’s commitment to provide rugby playing opportunities for men of all ages and abilities.
Based in the heart of Sussex, the club have a long history of growing grass roots rugby and developing talented players to an international level. Running two senior men’s teams, East Grinstead RFC are now seeking new members to join them. Email [email protected] for more information.
Matt Ratana, Head Coach of East Grinstead RFC said “Having previously competed at a national level, one of our goals is to return to the London Leagues. Last season the squad made significant progress towards this, coming runners up in the Sussex Cup and securing a promotion playoff, which was curtailed by lockdown. Our Colts development squad was unbeaten and in sight of winning both Premiership and Cup titles.”
“The club are used to bringing new talent into their squads and have a great induction process. With excellent facilities, an experienced coaching group, tailored fitness programmes and professional guest coach sessions to enhance learning, we are committed in providing players with a fun and challenging performance pathway. So, whether you are an experienced player or new to the game, if you are focused, determined, dedicated, disciplined and motivated, we would love to hear from you. London’s calling” added Matt Ratana.
The club would like to thank professional film maker, Mike Rumsey, Rumsey Films, for capturing the film.
