History

Uttoxeter Rugby Football Club was formed in 1982. It was the phoenix that rose from the ashes of JCB Rugby Football Club, which ceased to exist at the end of the 1981/82 season.

By kick off of the 1982/83 season Uttoxeter RFC had been born, with the majority of the former JCB players on board and a new home at Oldfields Sports and Social Club, in Uttoxeter, where we still are today.

In the early days the Club ran three senior teams, the players changed at the Oldfields Middle School across the road and played either at the school or on Fred Allen's field at the rear of the Shell Mex depot, on Dovefields Industrial Estate, using the Oldfields Club as a watering hole. When Saturday football ceased we could use the Club's changing rooms, eventually procuring a pitch on the hallowed Oldfield's turf, despite objections from the soccer and cricket die-hards. Over the last few years facilities at Oldfield's have improved greatly with new changing rooms and showers, a larger bar area and new car park.

Recently the club has acquired the use of a second pitch adjacent to the Uttoxeter Leisure Centre. The Club now has a vibrant Youth Section, from tag to under 18 level.

Although not always fulfilling our potential in the league, the club has run successfully for over 25 years, winning the Owen Cup four times, including the 2006/7 competition.

The futures bright... its black and orange.
