Welcome to the Shoreditch Sharks, Old Streetonians' youth section. We were launched by the RFU in November 2004, and have been running training, games and tournaments ever since.
Rugby is now being played in local primary and secondary schools as the RFU development team works closely with CEA@Islington - who provide schools services in the borough - and through the School Sport Coordinator networks.
The Sharks have also received support from Middlesex RFU Youth Trust, EC1 New Deal, London Active Partnership, the London borough of Islington and Shoreditch Our Way.
Since these intiatives, the RFU has helped launch three new inner city clubs in London - in Brixton, Peckham and Shoreditch - as part of an overall strategy to make rugby more accessible to children in the capital. We're proud to say that, albeit in a predominantly soccer-influenced are of the city, the Sharks have succeeded in promoting the sport throughout East London.
