New Players Welcome
If you are interested in playing a high standard of club rugby then why not join us at Charlton Park RFC. We are an ambitious, forward looking community rugby club driven by traditional values and take pride in our excellent club spirit. The first team plays in London One South (National Level 6) and the second team plays in Kent Invicta League One.
While we are looking for new players of all abilities and ambition to develop the strength of the club through all sides we are particularly keen on attracting quality players who will increase our strength in depth at first and second team level to make us even more competitive in the top tiers of London and Kent rugby.
We are based at Broad Walk in Kidbrooke in south-east London. We enjoy excellent transport links into Canary Wharf, the City and central London. We have excellent facilities and pitches which play host to Kent U18 and U20 matches as well as hosting the City League on weekday evenings through the season.
Pre-season training will be resuming on June 30th 2015. If you are interested in joining us or would like more information please contact the Director of Rugby, Andy Miller on 07703 659431 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Charlton Park enjoy another successful season
Charlton Park enjoyed a successful 2014/15 season although not quite matching the 2 league championships of 2013/14, each team enjoyed success throughout the season.
The date of this photo is uncertain, but we do know some of the people in it so it will come from just before the First World War, round about 1912 when we had a pretty strong team. At the time, of course, we were the Old Charltonians.
The captain, holding the ball, is FR (Freddie) Roberts. He played half-back (scrum-half?) for Kent and also represented London against Paris that year. We cannot be completely certain but the player on his right is probably HJ Turpin, who also played for the county.
Roberts survived the war to be captain again in 1919. On his left is Harold Hollis who was in the Kent side that won the County Championship in 1923.
