Market Bosworth RFC First Team

The Coaching Setup within the Seniors Side is very strong, with a lot of experience through the coaches and players. A strong and competitive second team along with colts players are pushing for senior rugby.

The club is re-introducing formal selection meetings for this season. The importance of discipline was stressed to all players present. The aim for the season is to achieve promotion to Midlands 1 East, which they were relegated from last season.


Bosworth Colts is a transition between Junior rugby and Senior rugby and is aimed at 17-19 year olds. Market Bosworth colts provides a solid feed into the senior set-up by helping progress player's abilities by working closely with the seniors. The leading Head Coach and manager is Jonathan Chadburn, who successfully guided Market Bosworth Under 17's to National Cup Glory by defeating Gloucestershire side Hucclecote in a 20-6 victory in the 2010-2011 Season, where they also won the County Cup, by defeating Lutterworth RFC. During that Glory, he was also helped by fellow coach of the Colts and Under 17's, Tim Venus.


Market Bosworth runs a strong junior set up encouraging young talent to progress from minis rugby through to colts and then eventually into Market Bosworth's senior set-up. Just One of the Successful Junior Sides is the Under 16's who last year, after narrowly losing to Lutterworth in the year before won the County Cup, beating Oadby Wyggs in the final winning 36-17. This was the last game of a very successful season for the Under 16’s, who remained undefeated at 15 a side, they played 21 games, winning all 21, scoring 858 points and conceding just 119 points.


Minis rugby is the first step into rugby and our qualified coaching staff will make it fun for you and your child/children. Here they will learn all the basics elements of the game as well as the opportunity to make new friends. All playing abilities are welcome to come along.

Summer School

One of the clubs aims has always been to encourage new participants to the club and/or the game in general in a relaxed, warm and sunny environment.

Under 17's National Champions

Market Bosworth Under 17’s travelled to Stourbridge on Sunday 1st May to take on West Country team Hucclecote in the National Finals of the Under 17’s cup. Having beaten a very good Otley side in a hard fought semi-final at Doncaster the reward was a trip to Stourton home of Stourbridge RFC to play Hucclecote. They clinched the title with a 20-6 victory running in three tries. Head coach Jonathan Chadburn said: "This was a fantastic performance by a group of players who have grown in stature, confidence and ability. "We knew this would be a tough game – and that's exactly what it proved to be. Hucclecote hadn't lost a game for two years. To stand any chance of winning, we had to be at the top of our game in all departments. But even I didn't expect the lads to cope so well with playing on the big stage."
