Community Focus: Dagenham Rugby Club

Dagenham Rugby Club was established in 1991 by a group of friends who 
wanted to expand their love of the rugby ethos away from the drudgery 
of the other local clubs.

Since then the club has grown in numbers, strength and reputation as 
one of the finest senior sections in Essex

However the club committee have realised that rugby clubs grow because 
of their youth sections and so felt the time right to create our very 
own youth section and 2010 saw Dagenham's first ever youth match played by under 11’s against a visiting Colchester side. And while the game ended in a very narrow 14-7 defeat for the mini D's it was the start of something special.

The club has now grown to have a youth club at every age group and two 
male adult teams and one female rugby team.

The club is looking to progress this year in both its youth and its 
adult teams and strives to improve on its last result every week.

If you feel like getting involved in rugby and would like to come and
