Horsham's 1st XV are looking forward to an exciting 2018/19 season competing in London 2SE for the 4th successive season as well as the RFU Intermediate Cup. The installation of a new RFU funded Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP), opened in June 2018, alongside new changing rooms now sees some of the best playing facilities in the South East. Retaining most of last season's young team, recruitment has gone well with strengthening in a number of key areas including the addition of experience of players from higher leagues. This real strength in depth which bodes well for the challenges ahead and has directly translated into the preseason training where the focus on player development has seen record numbers and a hugely positive atmosphere. The core tenants of Horsham's mobile pack and exciting backline have been retained and we continue to strive to play an exciting brand of rugby. We will be aiming for further success in both league and cup fixtures this season targeting an improvement on last season's 4th place finish.
Training is on Tuesday and Thursday nights between 19:30 - 21:00 . All our sessions are player centric and game related with the aims of developing all abilities. New players are most welcome.
