Founded in 1881, Bective Rangers FC is one of the oldest senior rugby clubs in Ireland. The Club’s senior team currently plays in Division 2C of the Ulster Bank League. In addition there are four adult junior teams, two youth teams and a thriving mini’s section from under six right-up to under twelves.
Our club house is located at the city end of the rugby ground in Donnybrook where we have two pitches and a further two pitches and club house on the Glenamuck Road in Carrickmines.
Back in Donnybrook, the club house contains a bar, hall, full catering facilities as well as a weights room and numerous changing facilities. The bar, hall and two smaller function rooms are available for hire and if you are interested in doing so please contact us.
New members are always welcome and even if you do not play and you can still join as a Pavilion Member. Pavilion membership is a great way of making new friends and you will be made feel at home. Pavilion members are full members of the club and have access to all of the club’s facilities, gym and may apply for International match tickets.
GET IN TOUCH
A Club where everyone is welcome and the highs and lows are shared. Where history is never forgotten, but the eye is to the future.
OUR CORE VALUES
To realise that the characters make a great Club and everyone has something to offer. That we are caretakers of the traditions, history and values of a great club, but it’s future is in our hands. That the Sunday Under 8 is the future Clubman or International.
To welcome all to Bective, friend or adversary for a lunch-time or a life-time.
To recognise that we love rugby for the unique game it is in the modern era. A competitive duel with your opposite number, a bonding with team-mates yet a total unquestioning respect for match and competition officials.
To share with visitors the unique Club that is Bective. A competitive Club with attitude and aspirations to strive to have people reluctant to leave. To say we played the game hard but fair.
That’s why we love rugby and joined Bective.
