We wish all our players, coaches, families, friends and supporters, a very happy New Year. 2019 is an important year for our club as it is our centenary year. In 1919 the original name of the club was Stanley Nibs. The headquarters
were at the Wagons and Horses pub and then the club moved to the Miners'
Arms at Lee Moor in 1964. When the Miners' Arms was closed by the brewery,
the rugby club was offered similar facilities at the Ship Inn across the
road from the Miners' Arms. The club then formed a junior section,
run by Ian Harris and David Sampson, with Alan Gibb joining a few years
later. The junior section has become one of the most respected setups
in amateur rugby league circles, providing the professional game with
an abundance of players,some who have gone on to also represent their
county and especially their country at international level. If you want to read more about the history of the club, please read our History page with photos of the teams through the years. If you have any photos or more information please email the club at email@example.com.
