The 2022/23 season marks the start of Falmouth Rugby Club's 150th Anniversary celebrations and we all invite you to come and help us mark this historic year. Rugby has been played in Falmouth for 150 continuous years, which is an incredible thing to look back on. One of the club's greatest successes came from the early 20th century - Edward John Jackett played for Falmouth, Cornwall, England and the Anglo-Welsh (now known as the British & Irish Lions). As the exact date of the formation of FRFC has been lost in history, we are using Edward John Jackett's birthday (2nd July) as the date for kicking off festivities.
Celebrations will kick off on July 2nd 2022 at 2pm when a keen group of cyclists will arrive through the front gates, having cycled 150 miles through Devon and Cornwall. Pasties and pints will be available and youth rugby will be played on the pitched for all to enjoy.
Our sponsors for this year will be Mind, Children's Hospice South West and Jay's Aim and you can donate to our efforts at the link here: https://www.justgiving.com/team/falrugby150
The club will also be unveiling new playing kit which features the new logo which has been designed especially (found below).
