Our work Partnership Projects Birstall RFC Fund Donate Fundraise The current club was formed in 1976 by a group of dedicated teachers at the local senior schools with the intention of providing ex-pupils with a club that would enable them to continue playing the game. The Club now boasts two senior adult teams, the 1XV currently compete in the Midlands 3 East (North) Division. The 2XV currently compete in the Leicestershire Merit League C. This year after 41 years of playing out of a school, we have secured a new playing facility and clubhouse. This will enable us to be able to develop rugby for all ages and try to develop a much needed ladies team in the area. This Fund in partnership with ATLAS allows us to raise money to support the development of rugby for the benefit of the people who play, support and have their lives improved through our club and the game.
