About us:

Maidstone Rugby is the county town’s senior and longest established rugby club and runs five senior men’s sides with the 1st XV playing its league fi xtures in London Division1 (South). Recent seasons have seen a resurgence in fortunes on the pitch which began in the 201112 season, whilst essentially a season of consolidation for the club, the campaign saw a successful run in the RFU Senior Vase competition where it took the regional title as well as reaching the national semi-fi nal stage. The momentum continued and an outstanding 2012-13 season saw the club’s 1st XV as undefeated champions of London and South East Division 3(SE), in addition to reaching the national semi-fi nal of the RFU Senior Vase for the second successive season; retaining their London and South East Division title in the process. The 2013-14 season saw the club narrowly miss out on a second successive promotion, fi nishing runnersup in the division but losing out to a narrow defeat in the play-off fi nal.  2014-15 saw a change in the coaching team and the introduction of high standard coaches, of whom most had cut their teeth as players with the county town club, this coupled with the infl uential captaincy of Ben Williams saw the side further progress, with the club enjoying an extremely successful campaign on three fronts; finishing as unbeaten champions of London Division 2(SE). In the County Cup competition a fixtures backlog meant the club disappointingly had to withdraw at the semifinal stage when they had a very real chance of reaching the fi nal. However, on the positive side the club were crowned London and South East Division champions in the RFU Intermediate Cup before going on to claim the national crown with a scintillating performance in the RFU National Cup Final at Twickenham. Twickenham whilst an exciting experience was was not the end of the silverware trail for the club with 2016 and 2017 seeing the club take and subsequently defend the Kent Plate title.

From a wider club perspective the club runs a thriving youth section that sees in excess of 300 children each week playing the game within a range of age groups,  and the club is also one of Premiership side Saracens’ partner clubs.

At the other end of the age range, the club organises and hosts the Spitfire Gold Veterans Trophy, which the club organises and runs on behalf of Kent RFU.
