A Team

The A Team was originally formed in 1919 as the second team for The Huddersfield Old Boys and has since been a pivotal part of Huddersfield Rugby Union Football Club. In its current format, we represent the Club as the Third XV, playing in the Yorkshire Western Merit League.

The end of the 2018 /19 season sees skipper Richard Baxter & vice Iain Shelton stepping down & handing the burden on to “Our George” Hinchliff & Steve Parry respectively. The main objectives of the new season will be to try & keep Karlos & Campbell under control, finally get Clive & Chris Evans to properly retire & improve our boat race record against the first team . We will also be going on tour to Majorca in April.

The A Team has not been much of a platform for any of our players to advance their careers, although the odd one of us do occasionally turn out for the second team. That said, Matt Johnson is Chris Johnson’s brother. Perhaps our most famous player is Luther Burrell although he never actually played for us.

We are not ones to travel to the end of the earth for a game & for us, winning whatever league we are in is not the be all & end all. If you feel that we can aid you in your aspirations as a player then you are sadly misguided & on the wrong bit of the website.

However we do like to think we have got the balance between having fun on & off the field about right & new players are of course, most welcome. You don’t have to be any good but if you are then you would be even more welcome.
