Coverage of Southampton Spitfires RLFC

Since forming in the summer of 2007 Southampton Spitfires have worked hard to increase their profile.

Every time we are featured in the local press or on the radio our web site hits peak sharply, which is good news for everyone connected with the club. In fact our website unique visitors topped 25,000 in 2012, generating over 130,000 hits.
