Greenock Wanderers Rugby Football Club is one of the oldest clubs in Scotland. It was formed in 1873, the same year in which Napoleon III of France abdicated, David Livingstone died in Africa and the American Civil War was still uppermost in people's minds. For supporters of the other football game, Glasgow Rangers were also formed in this year and Glasgow Celtic were still some 15 years away from their birth.
Wanderers are extremely proud of the fact that we have been able to maintain the interest and enthusiasm within the local environs for more than 130 years, forging numerous links with the local community. We are currently going through an expansion programme, to open the field of rugby football to a greater audience, hitherto untapped.
The 1st XV is once more competing successfully in the top 25% of clubs in Scotland, and, supported by a flourishing Youth Programme spanning ages 7 to 17, we are the envy of many other clubs.
