Esher's Under 15s bring home the Silverware for 3rd Year in a Row
Esher’s Under 15s bring home the Silverware for 3rd Year in a Row
Luxfords sponsored Esher Rugby Club’s Under 15 side have completed their season with a cup-winning performance at the West Country Festival of Rugby to secure silverware for a record third season in succession.
Following promotion for both As and Bs last year to Surrey Divisions 2 and 5 respectively, both sides had success in consolidating their positions in the higher leagues, with both finishing in highly respectable mid-table positions.
Esher’s Chairman of Rugby, leading TV sports broadcaster John Inverdale said “Our Under 15s have done us proud again. Many have been with us since they were Under 7s and they’ve become very much part of the success story here at Esher. We know that being a great club is about more than just the great standard of rugby seen from our National One side; it’s every bit as important that we offer rugby for all and develop the next generation of players. We’ll certainly be keeping a close eye on a few of our Under 15s as they move through the club and Academy and contend for 1st XV places in the years to come.”
Successful Reassessment to 3 BSI Standards
We are proud to advise that, following a very long day, we were successfully re-assessed to the Domestic, Commercial and Overseas BSI standards and we have also met all areas for the annual inspection of our premises, equipment, vehicles and procedures required by our trade association, BAR. We are now looking forward to a busy and successful summer.

In keeping with our tradition of supporting our local community, Luxfords has, for a number of years, sponsored the St Georges Hill Lawn Tennis Club’s (www.stgeorgeshillclub.co.uk) men’s first squash team who compete in the prestigious Surrey Cup which they won for the 2008/9 season and again for the 2012/13 season.

Esher's Under 14s Achieve Clean Sweep
As sponsor for the Esher Rugby Club’s Under 14 side, Luxfords are proud to confirm that the team have achieved a stunning clean sweep, winning every game over an eight month season to capture top place in Surrey League 3 and secure promotion for the second year in succession. As well as going unbeaten in a tough league season, Esher also achieved a rare whitewash, winning every game of a busy fixture list, including big wins over Premiership clubs Wasps and Harlequins.
Esher Under 14s’ Head Coach, Andy Berry, said: “The coaching team and parents are really proud of the entire squad. Both teams have achieved well-deserved success due to massive effort and commitment over a long season. We also owe a big vote of thanks to Esher professional Cameron Gentles and backs coach Aleks Naess-Clarke, who have taught the boys so much this year and to sponsors Luxfords Removals of Weybridge without whom little of this would have been possible. But the credit ultimately rests with the boys - who can now enjoy their summer knowing that they’re champions.”
Esher’s Chairman of Rugby, leading TV sports broadcaster John Inverdale, added: “We’re really proud of our Under 14s. They show the very best of our approach at Esher Rugby Club; a really inclusive set-up with rugby for all and a great sense of fun. We know that, despite their success this season, they’re looking for more players to join and I know that anyone - regardless of playing experience or standard - will be made welcome. So come along and join Surrey’s most successful club.”
