Welcome to Burgess Hill RFC

Burgess Hill RFC

So how did it come into existence ? An often asked question and many incorrect myths have abounded down the years, so it has been something of a joy to piece together the following, hopefully definitive account with particular thanks to Derek Fletcher and Ernie Parker for their assistance.

In late 1961, Elsie Fisher, Warden of the Park Centre put a notice in the local press about a meeting to form a rugby club in Burgess Hill. This had come about after a conversation she had with Derek Fletcher, who at the time was playing at another local club which shall remain nameless.

‘Fletch’ enlisted the help of John Willis, at the time a Swimming Instructor, who ‘volunteered’ the Weightlifting Club to play !!

Approximately 20 people attended the first meeting and a committee was elected and BHRFC was founded.
