NAME: Canvey island rugby club

League: London Essex 3





Club Overview

In the 1970-71 season, a bunch of 19 to 20 year old men fed up with traveling off the Island to play rugby, decided to start up their own side thus giving birth to Canvey Island Rugby Club. With no home pitch or club house to call their own games had to be played away, not even a set of matching shirts were issued at this point resulting in borrowing shirts from their old P.E. teacher and mentor Ken Light, from the then Canvey secondary school. Combining this with using the Haystack public house as a base the Canvey rugby side began to take shape

Our aims are now now to push for a second consecutive promotion into London 2
and become a strong competitive side in the London leagues, then to push on further.
