As a community club we offer our coaching services to all our local football-orientated schools who wish to introduce rugby to years 7 and 8. This is becoming very popular, with five schools already involved taking up each weekday afternoon and several more wanting to join up. All coaches are being paid by the club. If you wish to support this success story by either coaching or sponsoring, or you are a school who would like to take up this opportunity, please contact us.

Club training is on Thursdays 5.30pm to 7.30pm. For further information please email  Doug Hursey, or see our Youth Information page.

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.
