Mens, Amateur | Ilford, London | All players welcome

Bancroft RFC is a friendly, traditional and ambitious rugby club with a flourishing traditional social atmosphere. Located on the boundary between North East London and Essex we are affiliated to Essex RFU and London & South East Division RFU, and pride ourselves on being one of the oldest clubs in the area having been founded in 1894.

We are proud of our thriving social atmosphere which is created by three successful XVs. All three sides are entered into RFU approved leagues with a varying level of intensity. The first XV train twice a week and adopt a professional approach to their matches, with a strictly amateur post-match ethos. The second and third XVs have a more friendly and sociable emphasis.

Founded: 1894 | Team Colours: Light Blue, Royal Blue, Claret & Black | Bancroft RFC Website
