A lot has been mentioned in recent times about the history of DKRFC which is not surprising considering we were a new club 100 + years ago.

May 1920 – Formed as Harper Bean RFC.

So May 2020 was our 100th anniversary of our formation

9th October 1920 – First match v Birmingham 2nd XV (Lost 13 – 3)

So October 2020 was 100th anniversary of playing.

11th October 1921 – Fist Match as Dudley RFC v Springfield College (Won 14 – 3)

So October 2021 was our 100th anniversary of having Dudley in our club name.


This weekend is yet another landmark!

15th October 1921 saw the first outing of the Dudley RFC 2nd XV v Birmingham 3rd XV (lost 6 - 5)

So this weekend is the 100th anniversary of our first recorded 2nd XV fixture!
