Coronation Park has officially been home to Chelmsford Rugby Football Club (CRFC) since 1961, although it is possible that some games may have been played here at an earlier date.
Known as the Blue Boys, the 1stXV were promoted last season to London North East 2 (Level 6) which is very fitting as this year we are celebrating our Centenary, 1920-2020.
The newest Clubhouse stands on the east side of Coronation Park having moved from the west side and was opened in 2006 by the then International Rugby Football Union President, Dr Sidney Miller.
We currently have in excess of fifty senior men registered with the Club and put out three sides a week, 1stXV, 2ndXV & VetsXV.
CRFC also have a thriving Ladies section. The BlueBirds currently play in National Challenge League 2 have approximately thirty squad members and for the first time ever are looking at putting out a 2nd XV.
There is also a Youth Section which covers the U13’s to U18’s with in excess of one hundred boys, the Girls Section, U12’s to U18’s, with over twenty girls and the Minis Section, U6’s to U12’s, over three hundred and fifty boys and girls.
We are always on the lookout for new or returning players. For more information and training times, please see our website, Chelmsfordrugby.clubXV or follow us on Facebook.
