Richmond Women

Our Richmond Women remain one of the oldest and most successful women’s rugby clubs on the planet.

OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1986. We became the first women’s rugby club in the world to run two teams.
In 1986/87 the first Richmond Women’s captain Mary Forsyth and her team gained their first honours, winning the National 7s. Under Dee Mills, they won the National League title a season later.
In 1998/99 Carol Isherwood and Pat Harris led Richmond to victory in the National Cup and the National Sevens.
Debbie Francis’ side took the Championship of the National League in 1990/91 before winning the National Cup the following year.
In 1993/94 Mary Harrington’s side added to the silverware by winning the National Cup once more.
In 1994/95 the team, led by Sue Butler, put two more ‘pots’ on display, winning the National League and the National Cup.
At the end of the 1995/96 season, we won the National 7s and carried on to win the National League the following year.
In 1999/2000 Nicky Coffin’s team won the National 7s and the National Cup, which they went on to regain in 2002.
In 1999 Richmond’s second team achieved glory in the Amsterdam 7s, an honour they went on to retain for a further three years.
In 2002/03 a Junior Academy was set up and the First XV finished second in the National Premiership 1. A year later the Third XV was named the Impalas.
In 2004/05 two Richmond teams reached the final of the Stoneygate 7s.
In 2006/06 under the leadership of Nicki Jupp and Dawn Mason, Richmond became National Cup winners for a record seventh time, adding the National 7s title by defeating Saracens.
In 2009/10 we won the Premiership title and went on to win again in 2010/11, 2011/12, 2013/14 and 2015/16. We finished Premiership runners-up in 2012/13 and 2014/15.
We also won the National Cup in 2015/16 and our Second XV won the Women’s Championship South in 2015/16.
In 2017/18, 2018/19 , 2019/20 we played in the newly former Premier 15s, running a First XV and a Development Squad (Second XV).
In 2020/21 Richmond Women will compete in the Women’s Championship under new Head Coach Mark Cadogan, with a First XV and a Second XV.
