Canvey Island RUFC

Canvey Island RUFC
The Early Days
Canvey Island Rugby Football Club was founded in November 1970 by a selection of local players who wanted to play rugby locally instead of travelling to clubs situated off the Island .
With some borrowed shirts and only 13 Players, Canvey played their first game and won 18-0 against Mid Essex Tech at Chelmsford . Of that original group of players, 'Biff' Smith is still playing! (well sort of!), whilst Mick Norris is the ex-chairman of Essex R.F.U.
At first all games were played away, and by 1978 the club had begun to field three sides every week. Finally in 1979 the club was granted two pitches at it's current home of Tewkes Creek, where in 1983, by a joint effort of many club members, a clubhouse and bar were built.
The club had now transformed from being a pub-based side to a club with it's own facilities.
