Teams

At Gillingham Anchorians RFC, we started our junior division in 2015 with the mission to provide a rugby experience for school aged boys and girls that is firmly rooted in the 5 core values of English Rugby: enjoyment, sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork and respect.  The club has successful adult section (link to the senior teams' page) and players over 17 years old are invited to join in there.
