Alton Rugby Football Club

Colts Rugby

ARFC Colts Squad

Welcome to the Colts.

The Colts squad is comprised of the Under 17 and Under 18 age groups and for the 2016-17 season is competing in both the Hampshire Colts Cup and Plate Leagues and the National Colts' Cup.

One of the purposes of Colts rugby is to bridge the gap between junior and senior rugby and the older players are actively encouraged to play senior (e.g. 2nd XV) games on weekends when there is no competitive Colts game.  Indeed, a significant number of players in the current 1st and 2nd XV squads have come through the Colts system at Alton.

Recent successes include sharing the Hampshire Colts Bowl League title in 2015-16, being runners up in the Hampshire Seventeens Cup in 2012/13, winning the Hampshire Colts League Plate in 2008/9, sharing the Hampshire Seventeens Plate in 2006/7 after a drawn final, and winning Alton’s own junior 7-a-side tournament at the Under 17 age group in 2007.

The squad’s social side is enhanced by its touring exploits in foreign parts, which in recent years has included trips to France (three times), Belgium (twice) Italy and Spain.

Training takes place on Thursday evenings from 19:00 to 21:00.  Matches take place at 14:00 on Sundays with very little exception and the very full fixture list ensures that there is rarely a week without a game.

The Colts squad is currently 40 strong. We welcome new players at any point in the season - they can be sure of a friendly atmosphere where the emphasis is on enjoying the game and sharing sporting success.

Colts Sponsors

Alton RFC is extremely grateful to all our sponsors for their continued support and affiliation with the Club. Without them we would not be able to offer our members the facilities and opportunities that we do today.
