To maintain our position as Staffordshire’s premier club through the development of high calibre mens, ladies and junior players whilst remaining a financially robust, socially strong, family rugby club.

The main rugby pitch and the training areas are floodlit. In addition, we have a 60m x 40m floodlit, 3rd generation artificial turf pitch (ATP).

Steve Tams, President of Longton Rugby comments “We have a commitment to be the premier community sports club in Stoke, and are delighted to be able to hire our wonderful facilities to other clubs playing Football and American Football” .
Phil Myatt, Chairman of Longton Rugby adds “We are making rapid strides in our aim to become a multi-sports complex with the ATP, men’s and ladies soccer and the North Staffordshire Centre for Disabled Sport. Plus, of course, senior, junior and ladies rugby. There is still much to do to make the site as a whole into a well-appointed, eye catching sporting arena, but in our wonderful Clubhouse we have the central feature.”
Of the 2015/16 season Phil comments, “We enter a new season in National Three Midlands with renewed spirit and sincerely hope that with our great coaching set-up and player-base, supported by our very promising new arrivals, we can be pushing for promotion at the end of the season.
