Streatham-Croydon Rugby Football Club (SCRFC) has played rugby in South London community since 1871 - a whopping 150 years.
We started out on Streatham Common as Streatham Football Club but in the 1920s moved to Thornton Heath, changing our name to
The club was very prestigious with top-flight fixtures, running 12 teams. It produced England players, a sprinkling of county players and one former prime minister. Sadly, after the introduction of leagues in the 1980s, success at SCRFC waned, as we found it more difficult to recruit and retain players. We slipped down the leagues and the number of teams fell, reducing the club's income.
Thanks to the efforts of many enthusiastic volunteers, SCRFC managed to survive and more importantly we have retained our welcoming and social ethos. As a Community Amateur Sports Club the club constantly strives to develop links with the local community and schools.
Some years ago SCRFC started its minis and junior sections and over the last few seasons it has seen an encouraging growth of the ladies' 1st team and development side. Players from the mini and junior sections progressed on to greater things, as academy or senior players in premiership teams, both men and women. One of the senior ladies was selected to play for Ireland.
We are looking for funding in order that we can continue to build and grow our club so that it represents the local community, allows us to recruit and encourage new, young players from all backgrounds to play rugby and to ensure the club is still in the community for another 150 years.
Please support us in our efforts with our 3 main goals.
1/ Carry out refurbishment of the premises so as to provide excellent facilities for a diverse and multi-cultural membership;
2/ Promote the game of rugby in the community and local schools;
3/ Run taster sessions and sponsor/subsidise young players who are from challenging backgrounds.
THANK YOU FROM ALL AT SCRFC
