Barnstaple Juniors

Welcome to Barnstaple Rugby Clubs juniors where the building blocks of a successful rugby club are first layed. The junior section of the club continues to go from strength to strength through the dedication of the Coaches, Team Cordinator’s, first aiders and other volunteers that give up their time on a weekly basis.

Barnstaple Rugby’s junior section has age graded teams from U7’s all the way up to U16’s and is considered one of the biggest junior sections in Devon with nearly 300 young players and are oversubscribed every season as more and more youngesters want to play rugby.

We are an inclusive club and this can be seen every Sunday when hundreds of young players descend on the club to take part in games and well-structured and enjoyable training sessions. In fact roughly 90% of our junior players go on to play senior rugby with the like of Dave Lewis, Ben Vellacott and Danny Southworth all having played Premiership rugby.

We wholeheartedly believe in the RFU’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship. Whilst we do aim to produce talented rugby players we also want to make sure that we are developing all the young people into rounded individuals who can contribute to the club and the wider community.

If you wish to enquire about your child joining us for the new season or you wish to help out in anyway, we would love to hear from you just contact the junior section admin team at

We look forward to seeing you at the club.
