Our new proposed girls section ( ages 11-15) has received support from the Humber Sports Partnership and the Smile Foundation and we are grateful for their contributions towards setting up the first girls team in Hull.


Looking back at our proud history :--

The Hull and East Riding Rugby Union Club left the ground in 1973 and moved to the Anlaby Road Circle where more pitches were available--- it also meant that the club did not have to pay a boy 5/- ( 25p) every matchday to retrive rugby balls from the square. The rugby club's wooden grandstand at the Goddard Avenue end of the ground was taken down in 1986 and the shale tennis courts were developed into an extension of the car park and the entrance area to the ground from Goddard Avenue was sold off for housing.100 conifers were offered to the club free of charge for use in screening off the car park.


Cooked breakfasts at the club now  available daily from 9am to 12 noon. Standard £4.50, Bumper £6.  " Magnificent "  .. anon.

First XI have been drawn away to Dunnington in the second round of the Hunters Cup. Date tba.
