Welcome to Lockwood Park

It is my very pleasant duty to welcome our Players, Members and Supporters, together with Match and League Officials, and not least our friends from the 13 clubs who will play here during the 2016-17 season in National League 3 North.

The Club had a dissapointing campaign last season with the First XV eventually getting relegated from National league 2 North after a number of tough close loses.

The Falcons and the ‘A’ team again both had strong seasons. Despite losing a number of players at the start of the season the under 17's regrouped and did exeptionally well running out league winners. The Club also has a strong age grade section with the Under 14’s raising the Yorkshire Cup last season for the second consecutive year.

We continue to appreciate the involvement from all of our sponsors, advertisers, volunteers and staff. My designated charity is Kirkwood Hospice who give valuable help to cancer sufferers, although I hope none of our members ever need their fantastic services.

My playing days are long, long past,
My fitness and my vigour,
My hair is white, my gut is large, I cut a sorry figure.

Selection stopped selecting me,
But smiling, win or lose,
I lunch and watch and talk and drink,
I’ve joined the Alakadoos.

As President I feel so proud
Not only of this season,
But of all the great times we achieve
And you are all the reason.

The Age Graders, the Falcons, Firsts,
The A team and the Bowlers,
The Hockey, Squash, the Road Runners,
The Volunteer toilers.

We are one club, one team of mates,
I welcome each, our own,
Within this club be with your friends
not out there all alone.

Officials, oppositions, refs,
Come on let’s have fun.
Enjoy your time within this club
As I have always done.

Let’s succeed the best we can
In league or cup or others
‘Cause man or woman, boy or girl
We are a band of brothers.

HRUFC President
