Mortimer Park – the home of Luctonians Sports Club
Luctonians is a multi sport club with family values and a strong sense of community which celebrated its 60th year in May 2008. Currently we run 15 Rugby, 6 Cricket and one Netball team, but the clubs facilities are also used by the Croft Ambrey Running Club, The Kingsland Air Gun Club and various Football clubs for training. We are working closely with Rounders England to establish a Community Rounders Club in North Herefordshire for Summer 2010 that will offer both Social and Competitive sport to the Women and Girls.. This is all underpinned by a strong youth development policy that invests heavily in quality coaching at both the club and school level.
All are welcome at Mortimer Park- the site of the battle of Mortimers Cross 1461 the War of the Roses.
Rugby – Senior and Colts
Luctonians are the Premier Rugby Club in Herefordshire and run 5 Saturday rugby teams throughout the season – The 1st XV are represented in National 3 Midlands which involves travelling to Clubs as far a field as Peterborough, Luton and Kettering. The 2nd XV have won the North Midlands Reserve League for the past two seasons and the Knights XV is a new “Performance” XV for 2009 designed to bridge the transition between Colts and Senior rugby in the Worcester and Hereford Merit Tables. The Frame Wise Foxhounds was also set up in 2009 and caters for the Social player who is allergic to training and doesn’t worry about who ‘s winning or losing. The RMS Colts XV plays in the North Midlands u19 League and is a large well motivated squad for College age players. Whether you have just moved to Herefordshire, not played since school or just want to give it a go we have a team for you.
Training every Tuesday and Thursday 7-15 -8-30pm.

Rugby – Youth (13-16 yrs)
Our Senior rugby is underpinned by well structured Junior Section which has teams in every age group from U7-U16. The Youth Teams train twice a week, play matches throughout the West Midlands, Gloucestershire and into Wales and go on end of season tours.
The Club invests heavily in its volunteer infrastructure and understands that the continual development of its coaches is of direct benefit to the players they work with. The involvement of current 1stXV players as coaches means that young players are getting the benefit of up to date information in this crucial stage of their rugby experience, and the results speak for themselves with our teams performing extremely well at county level and many of our players progressing on to development and representational squads at the regional level.
Luctonians have been instrumental in the development of Youth Rugby within Herefordshire, South Shropshire and East Powys. The establishment of the Sun Valley Rugby Project in 2003 which created a fulltime post for a coach to work in the schools and Colleges has been integral in the development of the game in the region. The TagFest in 2008 involved 427 Primary children which set a Guinness World Record and represents the first of 6 schools age group competitions that the club runs annually. The project has been so successful that the RFU will take over the newly branded Cargills Community Coaching in 2010.

Rugby – Minis (5-12 yrs)
Luctonians has a thriving Mini Rugby section offering children between the ages of 6 and 13 the opportunity to learn rugby and socialise in a safe, fun and rewarding environment.
Training sessions and matches take place at 10.30am on Sunday mornings either at Luctonians or at other clubs around the region. See our 2009/10 Fixtures for details.
Safety and enjoyment are our priorities. All coaches and managers are CRB checked and we provide regular training seminars on Child Welfare and Protection.
We actively promote Mini rugby in the area through various projects and are the proud hosts of the Anglo-Welsh Junior Rugby Festival, one of the biggest and best Minis and Youth tournaments in the region.
We see Mini rugby as the foundation on which the future of the club is built and welcome all new players and supporters to the Luctonians family !
Every Sunday. 10-30am
Luctonians look to tailor-made sponsorship or Corporate packages to suit the individual company’s requirements and budget. Unlike most amateur sports clubs we look to give a real benefit to those businesses that support the Club and our newly refurbished club rooms offer excellent hospitality opportunities.
The benefits returned to the sponsor are negotiated as part of the sponsorship deal and are designed to meet the needs of the Sponsor. Luctonians have set up several partnerships with business’ to forward the interests of the Sponsor and the Club. A prime example is the Sun Valley Rugby Project, a three-year deal between Sun Valley, Bengrys Motors and Sportsmatch to take rugby to local schools.
