Group aims & activities

Dinnington Rugby Club was formed in 1967 from a nucleus of ex-school pupils by local Councillor Peggy Rowett and enthusiast Tommy Randall.

In an area traditionally dominated by soccer, the introduction of Rugby Union was both innovative and unusual, however, meagre financial resources and local indifference failed to discourage the snowball effect of the game on the school and the club. The early 1970’s brought in influx of new players and administrators to the club who were determined to expand and develop the rugby talent clearly available.

Fixtures improved dramatically and a Second XV was formed, and the old name of “Dinnington Old Boys” was replaced with the clubs current title.
