Guildfordians Rugby Club


Community Rugby in the Heart of Guildford

Guildfordians Seniors



Get fit, learn new skills and have fun with Guildfordians Rugby Club - new players always welcome!

Guildfordians run 1XV and 2XV senior sides playing in the Surrey leagues, as well as an occasional 3XV / Vets team.

In 2019/20:
the 1XV will compete in Surrey 3; and
the 2XV will compete in Surrey Combination 1 South.

Guildfordians aims to play successful, enjoyable and competitive rugby while accommodating players of all abilities, and to have the best social scene of any club in Surrey.

Our coaching is led by two RFU Accredited Level 2 coaches: James Lovell (Head Coach, forwards) and Rob Randall (Assistant Coach, backs). Outside coaches are also invited to run occasional guest sessions. During the 2018/19 season these included sessions run by England squad member Joe Marchant and Harlequins back five forward Stan South.
Our coaches aim to improve every player who trains, regardless of playing level. We believe quality Tuesday training is essential to the performance of our teams and the life of the club, and regularly have over 30 players attending each week. On Thursdays during the season CrossFit Guildford also run private strength and conditioning sessions available to all paid up members of the squad.

Head Coach, James Lovell, has put player development, team spirit and enjoyment at the heart of Guildfordians. James had the following to say about the challenges ahead "Our aim for the season is to develop every player and play enjoyable, competitive rugby. We want both teams to succeed in their leagues, and to maintain a team spirit where people want to train and play every week, regardless of for which team they are selected – continuing on from the progress made in 2018/19."

Senior membership (not pay as you play) entitles you to also play Touch and Walking rugby.
