Founding Fathers


... “Conditus Paterni, Auxilliabundas” ...

The Founding Fathers were formed in 2003, their moto,
“Conditus Paterni, Auxilliabundas” which is latin for “ Founding Fathers , giving aid”, and this describes precisely the purpose of this volunteer committee.

Uckfield Rugby Football Club was founded some 40 years ago, based on, good hard rugby, the occasional pint and not least recognition that as an organisation we had an ability or perhaps even a responsibility to help others less fortunate than ourselves.

In the early days fund raising events for local charities were commonplace; however with the need to move to new premises some years ago (and the advent of professional rugby, which changed the face of the game even at our level), our focus turned inward.

The new challenge of the Founding Fathers is to reverse that trend, whilst the rugby club must continue to focus on improving the standard of rugby; the purpose of the Founding Fathers is to to raise funds for local worthy causes and in so doing realise some of the core principles, perhaps forgotten by many in some communities.

Uckfield Rugby Football Club was founded upon Sportsmanship, Competition, Companionship, Camaraderie and not least Charity.
