Our Mission & Vision

Our player focussed coaching philosophy is centred on skills acquisition and development, team play, and fun. The Raiders have a long history of youth and junior coaching and have seen many players move on to further their rugby careers with professional clubs St Helens, Wigan, Warrington and Castleford, the armed forces Army and RAF, and universities Liverpool John Moores, Leeds, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester, Gloucester and more.  We pride ourselves on how many of our youth players transition into our senior team.

None of this happens without a fantastic group of volunteers, coaches and administrators, who are focussed on giving all our players opportunities to thrive, to develop into life-long participants and to grow Rugby League outside its traditional heartlands. Their support makes it possible for more individuals to access activity beneficial to physical and mental health. It helps us build a club we all in our local community can be proud of.
