Liverpool Collegiate RUFC are keen to attract new and returning students to join our squad for the 2019-20 season.

Liverpool Collegiate are extending our 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 7.45pm on Thursdays throughout the season on the 4G pitches on Jericho Lane (L17 5AL). We play our home fixtures at our club located on Riversdale Road in Aigburth (L19 3QF).

If catching the bus a number of routes pass close to the club and training venue (82, 82A 80, 60, 61) and both are located a short walk from Aigburth Merseyrail station. The journey takes just under 20 minutes from Liverpool City Centre, alternatively there are usually lifts available for those who need them.

For those who would like to ‘have a go’ with our 1st XV but are unsure if you could slot in straight away, then the competitive 2nd XV play to a high standard in NW Division 2. Alternatively, for those more interested in the social side of a thriving rugby club, then our occasional 3rd team provides a good dose of fun along with 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 third 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 some of the best in the area and we have competitive teams that 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 £75 per year, and includes access to all facilities at Liverpool Cricket and Sports Club (gym, squash courts, tennis courts, cricket nets, etc).

If you have any more questions about our club, then feel free to contact or WhatsApp/text/call the club phone on 07927745350.

Alternatively, come along to experience our training sessions from 7pm on Tuesdays and 7.45pm on Thursdays!
