Welcome to Lockwood Park.

Looking back on my first season as President, even with the rosiest of rose-tinted glasses on, I must admit that it did not go exactly to my plan.

After the non-season that we had last year, it is now a real joy to be welcoming back our players, members, partners and guests to the fantastic facilities here at Lockwood Park. It will be great to have the place buzzing and to be able to enjoy the spectacle of live sport once more.

A warm welcome also goes to all our visiting teams and their officials and supporters. I hope you enjoy your visit to us today, but not too much!!

This new season in National 2 North will bring some very interesting local clashes for us as there are a total of seven Yorkshire clubs in the league and many games will have a real local derby fell. We will also be hosting many friends, old and new, from outside God’s Country. You are all most welcome.


In rugby terms, this season, as well as our usual list of Mini, Junior and Men’s sides, we have added Women’s and Girl’s rugby, run by Jess Bunyard. They are always looking for new players and for us veterans, Walking Rugby, which is much more energetic than it sounds….Go on, no excuses, Give Rugby a go!!

Many thanks go to our partners and members for their continued support. Please try to support our partner’s businesses when you can. Also, remember you have a better chance of winning with our 200 Club than you do with the National Lottery!! You have to be in it to win it!

We also have many other sports and activities here at Lockwood Park for you to take part in, including Squash, Hockey, Snooker, Bowling, Running and an affiliated Astronomical Society (Please see the relevant sections of our website for details).
