First XV

The 2021/22 season sees the First XV again competing in National 2 North.

Gareth Lewis returns as head coach for his ninth season, while Lewis Bradley steps up to captain the side and will be assisted by vice-captain Tom Hodson.

The desire to bring through home grown players remains, with new recruits carefully selected to add talent and experience as well as, crucially, ‘buying in’ to the club’s ethos, core values, and spirit

The 1st XV has been a great platform for a number of players to progress their careers. Perhaps our most famous past player is Newcastle Falcons and former England International Luther Burrell who came through our Age Grade system. Ben Harris is currently playing for Wasps in the Premiership and Mat Clark is at Nottingham in the Championship. Chris Johnson was also an influential player and became the National League top points scorer at Lockwood Park before moving up to National 1 with Fylde and Sale and captaining England Counties. Current Fiji coach and former Scotland and Barbarians coach Vern Cotter also played at Huddersfield, captaining the side during the 1985/86 season.

This player pathway is a long-term development that starts at the U6’s and ends with the 1st XV. In an endeavour to further develop the pathway from Junior to Senior rugby Bill Duncombe has been appointed as Head of Youth Rugby and one of his responsibilities will be to support the transition of Academy players into the Senior sides at Huddersfield.

If you feel you would like to be part of what we have at Lockwood Park and believe that we can aid you in your aspirations as a player, then do not hesitate to visit the club or contact either the head coach or senior rugby manager for an informal chat.

Match entry is £10 for non-members, £8 for concessions and free for under 18’s.

Training

All Senior Squad training re-commences on Tuesday 1st June and will be held each Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6.45pm.
