North Walsham Rugby Club

North Walsham is one of the youngest rugby clubs playing in the National League. Founded in 1962, the early games were played on school pitches in the town.

Later the ground at Scottow, seen in the panorama here, was purchased. At the time there was no clubhouse and the players changed at the Horseshoes PH and drank there afterwards, presumably unshowered! Fortunately for all, money was raised, the two storey clubhouse built and yet more land purchased.

Friendlies and Merit Table games were played until the Leagues were introduced in about 1987. Rapid promotion brought the club to the National Divisions in 1990 and there they have remained.

The players are all true amateurs, in that they are unpaid but the commitment would put many a semi-professional to shame. The club employs a professional Director of Rugby, Jon Curry who has built a coaching team including Nick Youngs the former England and Leicester scrum half, who at one time came out of retirement to play for the club.

Touchline support is excellent, with home games attracting a crowd of around 500 spectators. Apart from the main first team the club also runs two other sides each Saturday and on Sunday mornings Scottow is home to the mini and youth section for children from seven years upwards. There is a growing Ladies Section for under 16's who are now being entered in various competitions.
