The Club

About Us

 

 

Commitment, inclusion and teamwork.

Buzzwords you might expect to find on the website of any modern-day sports club.

But at Dalziel we wear our hearts on our sleeves - because rugby is a way of life.

 

Above all, our historic club – situated at the tremendous facilities at Dalziel Park, Motherwell - is distinguished by passion. We strongly believe in the transformational qualities of grassroots sport, the ability to unite, drive and inspire the young (and not so young!) to reach their potential - on and off the park.

 

Developing and playing home grown players, at youth level, is the foundation stone of Dalziel Rugby Club. Our annual youth festival – every April - is widely considered to be the best of its kind on Scottish shores, attracting teams from across the UK and beyond. 

 

Over the  years, the club has developed many young players and made contributions to the Lanarkshire, Glasgow District and National Rugby Teams with a number of under 18, under 19 and under 20 players gaining international honours at those levels. Some of our players have even made their mark on the global stage – and it all links back to our impact at local level.

 

Currently our first team plays in Tennent’s West Regional Division 1 with a further two senior teams and a vibrant Midi and Mini (U-18 to P1) section running out every week.

All coaches are fully trained and vetted and are supported by a newly-appointed development officer.

 

We always welcome new members – playing or non-playing – and we offer the Dalziel guarantee that you will be warmly welcomed into our vibrant, friendly and inclusive rugby community.
