BEAR HISTORY

Walsall Rugby Football Club was established in 1922.

The first season saw 61 players pay 5s for their year's subscription.

Since that time Walsall RFC have been more than lucky with the number of personalities that have been a part of our Club, on and off the field, which has seen the club prosper over the last 86 years.

The advent of the leagues and cups in the 1980's opened many doors for Walsall. Promotion to national league was won in 1988/89 to be followed in 1994/95 with further promotion as champions of National Division 5 North. The following season Walsall gained promotion to National Division 3. Then disaster struck and Walsall filled the last relegation place after finishing fourth from the bottom.

Season 2006/07 saw Walsall relegated to Midlands 2 West after 6 seasons struggling to hold on to Midlands 1 status.

Season 2015/16 saw Walsall relegated from Midlands 1 West to Midlands 2 West (North) the lowest league level ever in the history of the club.
