1922 - Present
Walsall Rugby Football Club was established in 1922 when a group of “distinguished but moderate boozers” who drank at the Conservative club, decided it was time the town had a rugby club of it’s own. It wasn’t until 1932 that rugby became the school’s official winter sport, thus providing the club with a steady stream of old boy talent, which lasted for many years.
The original headquarters of the club was at the Wheatsheaf Inn and was moved to the Old Hart Inn whilst match day switched to Walsall baths. In 1931 the original playing pitch was needed for redevelopment and the club took a lease on its present ground. Despite three subsequent facelifts the original building is still there!
Since that time Walsall RFC have been more than lucky with the number of personalities that have been a part of our Club, on and off the field, which has seen the club prosper over the last 96 years.
The advent of the leagues and cups in the 1980's opened many doors for Walsall. Season 2006/07 saw Walsall relegated to Midlands 2 West after 6 seasons struggling to hold on to Midlands 1 status.
