Newport Salop RUFC


Newport Rugby Club

Welcome to the home of Newport(Salop) Rugby Union Football Club

Beautifully situated on the edge of Newport on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border we are the most senior club in the area playing our rugby in National 3 Midlands where we will be starting our seventh year at this level when we begin our new campaign in September.

We pride ourselves on playing an entertaining style of rugby in a friendly community based environment. It promises to be another exciting era in the Club’s history as the extension and improvements to the Clubhouse are now more or less complete. Phase 2 is already on the drawing board which will see a refurbishment of the Club’s changing facilities. With a much better infrastructure in place it is hoped that a challenge can be made for promotion to a higher level that would see Newport playing at National 2 for the very first time.

Newport finished 5th last year, their highest ever placing since the formation of the League pyramid. They appeared in two North Midlands Cup Finals recently, lifting the Trophy for the first time in 2010 when they beat Bromsgrove before going down narrowly the following year to Dudley Kingswinford. The 2nd XV will be captained by Pete Thomas who hopes to develop a side that will push the 1st XV for starting positions throughout the coming season. The Club will also run a 3rd XV under the guidance of Willy Wilcox for those who don’t take their rugby too seriously where the emphasis will be on renewing old rivalries and friendships with local clubs whilst keeping travelling to a minimum.

The Club also boosts a thriving Colts, Mini and Juniors Section running teams at all the various age groups and is certainly one of the main reasons the Club needed to expand to accommodate the growing band of players, parents, coaches and many other valued volunteers.

We are always on the lookout for players of all ages and abilities so whatever your age you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome to Newport in a family orientated atmosphere.
