2017 marks 25 years since Cricklade Rugby Football Club was formed.
It was founded in 1992 by Charlie Ross (1st President), his wife Irene (1st Hon. Sec.) and Martin Bickell (1st Chairman) in the Vale Hotel, Cricklade.
A request for players was placed in the Cricklade Chronicle and the very positive response resulted in the formation of Cricklade Rugby Football Club. The club originally used pitches from Prior Park School and The Duke of Gloucester Barracks.
We now play on our own professionally prepared pitch at Fairview Fields in Cricklade kindly leased to us by the Town Council, where we hope to soon have our own changing rooms.
One of our Key Aims is to play an active role in the “community” and we have planned several events including a Silver Jubilee Summer Ball on Saturday June 24th when CRFC was first formed.
As part of our ‘community’ theme we are very keen to reach out to all other local sports’ clubs and arrange a friendly game of your discipline to take place over the course of 2017. This would be a ‘fun’ way of sharing the spirit of ‘sport’ in Cricklade. We would be delighted if your club could join us in a celebratory match (your sport). This is intended to be all inclusive, with a possibility of a mixed sex team drawn from our players, WAGs and supporters.
