President's welcome

Grosvenor Rugby Club was formed in 1953 and has a long and proud tradition in Ulster Rugby. Over recent years we have enjoyed considerable success and in 2009, 2010 and 2018 were short-listed for IRFU Ulster Club of the Year. We were one of the first cubs in Ireland to achieve the IRFU Club Excellence Award and in the 2018/19 season our 1st XV won the McCrea Cup, got to the semi-fianl of the Junior Cup and finished 4th in Championship 1, thereby qualifying for the All Ireland Junior Cup next season.  In Provincial League Division 1 our newly promoted 2nd XV finished in 4th place, while  our 3rd XV finsihed runners up in Regional East and were 3rd placed in Regional Premier. 
A new home
In April 2016 we accepted the kind invitation of Malone RFC to relocate to Gibson Park. We are now well established in our new home, enjoying the superb facilities and being part of what is a welcoming, vibrant rugby hub in the heart of East Belfast.
Our Coaching Team
We place great emphasis on player development and are delighted to have one of the finest coaching teams in Junior Rugby, overseen by Director of Rugby, Crawford Dobbin. Head Coach Robert Ford (also Ulster Juniors Asst. Coach) is joined by forwards specialist Peter Lowry, while Marty McCullough and James Bowman look after the 2nd XV and Sam Grant looks after the 3rd XV.
Grosvenor Rugby Club welcomes new members of all playing abilities and can guarantee you excellent coaching, great rugby, warm hospitality and friendly cameraderie.
Proud to be a Stag!
