ANDOVER RFC

PLAY HARD - PLAY WELL - PLAY FAIR

About Us

Squad

We train on a Sunday morning from 10:00 AM until 12 noon (unless we have a match!) and we also have a joint midweek session on a Wednesday evening starting at 6.30pm and ending at 8pm. On matchdays kick-off will normally be 11 AM, with the matchday squad to arrive at 9.45am.

We play League games against other Hampshire teams about twice per month and also arrange ‘friendly’ matches with local squads both in Hampshire and other Counties throughout the season. At this stage of competitive rugby, we aim to teach and develop the squad to play as a team, embrace the spirit of the game, competing and yet retaining the idea of having fun!

At Under 15's we play full Youth Rugby 15-a-side with 8 forwards and 7 backs. We don't lift in the lineout but we have scrums, ruck and mauls, kicking and full contact tackling, all of which we will coach you to achieve safely and with maximum fun. Gumshields are available from the club shop. Kit can be bought from the club shop or from our Second Hand kit store, The Shed.

We always welcome new squad members and are happy for your child to come along and give rugby a try! The squad members are representative of most of the local schools in the area and it is likely your Year 10 child will already know somebody that plays. Some members of our squad have been successful in being selected for the Hampshire Schools of Rugby (formerly London Irish EPDG Elite Player Development Group), and some have also gone through the Hampshire County trials and selection process.

If you are interested in coming along, or if you have any questions, please give our Team Manager a call. Contact details are below
