Olney RFC is a community Rugby Club promoting the very best sporting qualities of teamwork, respect, honesty, commitment and friendship.

We currently compete in the SSE Midlands Division and run four senior teams, a Veterans and a Ladies team.

We are proud of our thriving Youth section, developing players from the age of 5 upwards.

We have the best facilities in the area, available to players, spectators, sponsors and to local business.

Olney RFC offers a warm welcome to new members, sponsors and supporters, so why not come down and join us, but if you are hoping to be paid to play, find another club. 

 

WWI Commemorative match - 24th Jan 2015

 

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI, Olney RFC are planning to commemorate this and the sacrifices of many members of Olney RFC during the Great War.

We have a match on 24th Jan for an Olney XV team against The 1st Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment RFC and a match with Olney Ladies vs Army Rugby Union (Women). We have chosen the date of Jan 24th, as 100 years ago on that weekend, a Charity International Match was played at Northampton between Scotland and England. Several players involved with Olney played for England that day, including Edgar Mobbs. The match was played to help Edgar Mobbs form his own Battalion to which many sports players, and people from this surrounding area subsequently joined. Our squad for the day will include members with military connections and potentially members from other East Midlands Clubs.

 

For more information on Edgar Mobbs and his accomplishments, go to Edgar Mobbs And Olney RFC
