“It’s great having support home and away from the Supporters Club that organise travel for our passionate supporters. They are the 16th man on the pitch – in those tight games and when conditions are bad.” – Pete Lowe, First Team Manager.

The London Welsh Rugby Club Choir create a unique, rousing atmosphere in the Clubhouse before and after games. The social side of the Club is very strong with a calendar of events and tours throughout the year “We take pride in our reputation as a very inclusive Club – anyone coming to London for the first time will feel very welcome here and immediately part of the family.” David Brunsdon, Director and Welfare Officer #lwfamily

1000+ supporters – friendly and welcoming – social events and tours

Careers Hub

Careers advice and mentoring is offered to players through London Welsh’s extensive network of business contacts, broader Club community, Sponsors and Partners. This more recent innovation has proved highly successful and well appreciated by players; that have used the service to prepare for progression and even changes of career. “It’s a simple idea where those off the field of play help those on it. We cannot offer jobs but we can help players to progress their career and perhaps open a few doors.” Peter Laybourne, London Welsh Hub Director.
