The A Team was originally formed in 1919 as the second team for The Huddersfield Old Boys and has since been a pivotal part of Huddersfield Rugby Union Football Club. In its current format, we represent the Club as the Third XV, playing in the Yorkshire Central Merit League.
The A Team has not been much of a platform for any of our players to advance their careers, although the odd one of us do occasionally turn out for the second team. That said, Matt Johnson is Chris Johnson’s brother. Perhaps our most famous player is Luther Burrell although he never actually played for us. Although Rugby League legend Danny Brough has promised to sign on for the 2023/24 season on the promise of an after match pint.
We are not ones to travel to the end of the earth for a game. For us, winning whatever league we are in is not the be all and end all. If you feel that we can aid you in your aspirations as a player then you are sadly misguided and on the wrong page of the website.
However, we do like to think we have got the balance between having fun on and off the field about right. New players are of course, most welcome. You don’t have to be any good but if you are then you would be even more welcome.
