A wonderful place to enjoy playing or watching some community rugby.

David Doherty - Director of Rugby at Harrogate RUFC said, "Harrogate Rugby are delighted to announce the new partnership with Gilbert to be our official and exclusive kit suppliers. In the clubs 150th year (1871-2021) it was important that we partner with a company that shares our history in Rugby Union and most importantly the clubs core values. Gilbert’s attention to detail, commitment to quality and being based in Robertsbridge, England make Gilbert a perfect match. It’s a very exciting time at Harrogate Rugby and we look forward to collaborating on and off the field with Gilbert to give our players, members and supporters the very best experience."

Commenting on the exciting new partnership, Luke Gray, Head of UK Sales at Gilbert Rugby said, "We are delighted Harrogate RUFC have selected Gilbert to be their official and exclusive kit suppliers from the start of the 2021-22 season; to partner with one of the most established clubs in the country is a testament to the developments we have made in the Teamwear market over the last few years. It is an exciting time to form a new partnership with the club approaching their 150th season and having recently moved to an impressive new facility. We look forward to working with the club across all levels; seniors, ladies and juniors to ensure Rugby Union maintains central to the Harrogate community."
