History

Thurrock Rugby Football Club was formed in 1928 as Grays Rugby Football Club and adopted their present identity after World War II to reflect the wider area from where players were drawn from. The club saw plenty of success during the 1970s, including completing the Eastern Counties Cup and the Essex Cup Double three years in a row from 1974 to 76. Four years later the club reached the final rounds of the Middlesex 7s. [2] The introduction of the league system in 1987 saw the club placed in London 2 North and won promotion to London 1 three seasons later. The 1991/92 season saw the club win another promotion, this time to National 4 South but were relegated back into London 1 the following season. The club returned to the National Leagues in 2012 following promotion from what was by now London 1 North. [3]
