Cheltenham Saracens is an exciting, welcoming rugby club which has had it’s downs in the past but is certainly flying high at the moment with 3 senior teams in tough competitions and a newly-formed under 12 outfit.
The first XV has just been promoted into Gloucester Premier after an exciting 2013-14 season. The 2nd XV and 3rd XV both play in Gloucestershire Reserve Leagues and all three squads play regularly – something that not many clubs these days can say!
The ‘Sarries’ are also lucky enough to have players of all ages and abilities in the family – those who have never picked up a rugby ball before (of which we have has several this season) to those just starting adult rugby for the first time to those nearing the end of their long rugby careers (longing for the safety of the bar and balcony!)
We also put out a Vets team where necessary and have hosted touring teams from around the world.
Once a year the club also travels the world for the annual Sarries tour – not to be missed as it is a chance for players from all three senior squads and social members to get together and celebrate the seasons end. If travelling isn’t for you, then there is also an annual dinner/dance to give out awards and thanks to players, sponsors and supporters.
