Our Mission

What We Stand For

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.

A Message From

Our Chairman

As I embark on this new chapter as head coach, my 14-year journey as a player within the club has been a foundation of privilege and growth. I’m eager to lead, inspired to make a meaningful impact, and driven by the collective pursuit of success. Let’s not only build on the legacy but aim to surpass the achievements of last year. Together, we’ll carve a path of excellence on and off the field.
