ERFC Club House
The Ellon Rugby Football Club was
inaugurated on the 5th of October 1977, borne out of the interests
and efforts of individuals who had moved to the Ellon Area, predominantly
involved in the Oil and Gas Industries.
The then list of our Founder members
originated from a wealth of Rugby playing places and origins such as the Borders, Edinburgh, Ayr, Glasgow, Gosforth, Droitwich, Manchester, London,
Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States of America!
Ellon RFC was and continues to be an
important part of the Rugby advancement of the North East of Scotland, which
has led to the development of potential “home produced “talent , which
culminated at the end of Season 2000-2001 with the Ellon 1st XV
finally winning promotion to the National Leagues.
Today , the Ellon Club is well known and
respected throughout the World of Rugby, with our Mini, Midi and Youth Teams
featuring successfully in all leagues and tournaments. This is only achieved
thanks to the tireless efforts of the various,
Organisational, Management, Coaching and Fund-raising and Sponsorship
committees, which are necessary to run and develop the successful modern day
As a comparatively
new rugby club (the “heady” days of 1977 do not seem that far away!) without
the trappings of history and tradition, Ellon RFC has come along way in that
short space of time . We have boasted the membership of many fine characters to
the game and are now regularly producing Youth players of International
Potential , the success of which is only achieved thanks to the planning,
enthusiasm, coaching ability and endeavour
which is applied to our “Family” Rugby Club by our hard working members.
Ellon Rugby Club welcome at the Meadows, is always guaranteed to the opposition
teams of every age grade, Mini thru’ to Senior, supporters, friends and visitors .
Rugby Football Club will continue to strive for the benefit and development of
our Club and National Rugby Game.
