NEW BRIGHTON FOOTBALL CLUB (RUGBY UNION)

A Community Club

The Club was formed in 1875 and has been based at several grounds over the years. Our present home is Hartsfield situated in Reeds Lane, Moreton, Wirral, CH46 3RH.

We are proud of our traditional clubhouse that incorporates the Long Bar, Denis Pemberton Lounge Bar, Tea Room and Restaurant, as well as a substantially covered stand. The Lounge Bar (we serve real ale!) is open from 5.30 p.m. on weekdays, Sunday lunchtime and Saturday’s from 12.00 noon during the rugby season.

At present we run three senior rugby teams all of which compete in a league structure the First XV are currently in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division 1. The first team pitch is the envy of the majority of Clubs in the country. It is floodlit and has a digital scoreboard. The back pitch has training lights and a dedicated junior area.

Our Squash Section maintain six courts to a very high standard one of which is glass backed and includes an extensive viewing area. Squash run several competitive teams, mixed and ladies-only monthly leagues ensure competitive squash for all who desire it. We also have an Archery group, several local schools use the facilities for soccer training and there's a gym and a CrossFit set-up.

New Brighton is very much a family Club; both Squash and Rugby run thriving Junior Sections with over 300 members meeting regularly to enjoy both sporting and social events. Regular social events ensure non- playing family and friends are not forgotten. Our Sportsman’s Dinner, just one of many social events, is held in a marquee. It is the highlight of our social calendar. The event was initiated back in 1988 and yearly since then we have been entertained by a host of renowned sportsmen and entertainers - Phil Bennett, Frank Worthington, Sir Richard Hadley, Martin Bayfield, Ronnie Whelan, John Conteh to name but a few!

Our extensive facilities are available for hire for corporate events and private functions. All visitors to the Clubhouse are assured of a warm welcome: at New Brighton we pride ourselves on our hospitality. We look forward to welcoming you to Hartsfield.
