This season has seen our great club celebrate its 40th anniversary since reformation. A series of events to mark this occasion are taking place all year.
Our club was reformed in 1980 and has experienced many successes since. November 2019 saw a hugely successful 40th anniversary dinner that was attended by players from all decades. Many of them played important roles in securing some famous victories including winning the Yorkshire four league, the Aire-Wharf merit league, the Yorkshire Cup, the Yorkshire Shield and the Yorkshire Vase amongst many others.
Rugby Union in Ossett
Both our male teams play competitive rugby – our 1st XV in Yorkshire 3, and our 2nd XV in the Yorkshire Merit League, whilst our ladies team currently play development rugby. The season runs August to April, with social events running throughout the year. We’re always happy to see new faces, players and non-players alike. So, if you’re interested in joining the club, or just want to hear how we’re doing, like our pages on social media and we’ll keep you updated with the latest news.
We had a great year in 2019 and 2020 looks set to continue and perhaps even better that trend. Here is a snap shot of our most recent successes:
Perhaps our most enviable achievement is having our own beer brewed exclusively for us. In partnership with our main sponsors Ossett Brewery we launched the #oneclub beer in commemoration of our 40th year celebrations.
If you would like to be a part of our great club, be that on the pitch or helping off it, please contact us.
