Liverpool Collegiate are extending the traditional warm welcome to students. Over the years Collegiate have developed a good relationship with the local universities which has resulted in a steady stream of talented and enthusiastic players who have proved to be a vital cog in the on-field success of the club.
A substantial number of our players are current students, with a healthy proportion being given the opportunity to play regular 1st XV rugby. Additionally plenty of club members are graduates who found us such a delightful bunch that they decided they could never leave!
Training sessions are held from 7pm on Tuesdays and 6.45pm on Thursdays throughout the season at our easy-to-find home, Liverpool Cricket and Sports Club.
If catching the bus a number of routes pass close to the club (82, 82A 80, 60, 61). The journey takes under 20 minutes from Liverpool City Centre, alternatively there are usually lifts available for those who need them. The club is a few minute walk from Aigburth and Cressington stations too for anyone who prefers trains.
For those who would like to ‘have a go’ with our men's 1st XV but are unsure if you could slot in straight away, then the competitive 2nd XV play to a high standard in Halbro NW Division 2 South. Alternatively, for those more interested in the social atmosphere of a thriving rugby club, then the 3rd team provides a good dose of fun along with a full season of local rugby.
Our Liverpool Collegiate Bluebirds are ready to welcome any woman who wants to have a go at rugby - the team is in their second season in NC North 2 West league, a league specifically for developing teams with new players. New or returning players to the sport will be given all the coaching they want to be confident on the pitch. We’re a close knit team, and always happy to extend our rugby family. Our women's team has a range of ages from 17 up, students and working women, with a range of experience from zero to decades, and we welcome anyone who wants to give it a try!
Our facilities are second-to-none and we have four competitive teams that can cater for all levels of ability, as well as providing a strong social atmosphere where you will be made most welcome. Student membership is priced at just £60 per year, and includes access to all facilities at Liverpool Cricket and Sports Club (gym, squash courts, tennis courts, cricket nets, etc).
