Lansdowne Senior Team is one of the most successful club sides in the country. We compete at the top level of Irish rugby in Division 1A of the Ulster Bank League and have topped the league 4 times out of the last 6 seasons at the conclusion of the league since 2012/13 season. We have won the title outright in 2012/13 before play-offs were introduced and then again in 2014/15 when playoffs were introduced and have currently qualified for the play-offs again this season 2017/18 with a record points tally of 515 scored and a new record of 71 League points won replacing our 2012/13 sides old record of 68 since the 10 team format was introduced.
14 British & Irish Lions & 105 Irish Senior Internationals have come thru Lansdowne FC from Moss Keane to Devin Toner, Gordon Darcy to Jordi Murphy we have been privileged to have them all involved with us and hopefully we will add to the numbers over the coming years with many past and current Irish Under 20s hopefully making the step up to full internationals.
We play an exciting attacking brand of rugby under former Welsh Grand Slam Winning Coach Mike Ruddock who is ably assisted by former international Mark McHugh. Work ethic is very strong within our squad and the core reason of our success. We compete as a squad and it is all about team work, sticking together and looking out for one another and playing as one unit.

Lansdowne U20s 2018

Lansdowne FC Under 20’s Introduction

Lansdowne U20’s are the current JP Fanagan Premier 1 League Champions for 2017/18. We successfully defended our 2016/17 title when we were undefeated in the league.

We are very proud of our under 20’s structures; led by Ireland’s most successful under 20’s coach Declan Fassbender, whose knowledge and attention to detail are second to none. Ben Armstrong, our big Aussie is assistant & forwards coach, brings great knowledge and enthusiasm to the role.

Off the field, Mark McMahon Director of Under 20’s Rugby keeps everything moving as it should be in an efficient manner.

Lansdowne under 20’s rugby under different guises, such as 19’s & 21’s, has been around for nearly 30 years and was set up as a comprehensive player development programme, firstly to supplement the senior team and more recently to also develop young players for the professional game.

Lansdowne FC aims to identify and develop potential club, provincial and international players who will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to succeed in both the amateur and professional era, both on and off the pitch.

Lansdowne FC is a traditional but still very progressive club with a proven history and culture of creating a quality environment for players where the foundations are laid to prepare players for a life in professional rugby but also for a career outside of rugby.

Mission Statement

To Nurture and Develop the Characteristics and Skills Necessary in the Pursuit of High Performance Rugby through the Provision of a Professionally Structured Programme of Fitness, Rugby, Mental and Personal Skills.

While the aim of Lansdowne 20’s is to fast- track players to senior AIL, under 19/20 interprovincial/ international representative levels as well as senior interprovincial development level, and beyond, our structure creates an environment conducive to the development of a career that will extend beyond rugby.

On completion with Lansdowne 20’s we expect the individual to have attained a level of sporting excellence together with the complementary life skills necessary to sustain a productive career whether that be in or out of rugby

Objectives

Lansdowne 20’s, similar to the IRFU Provincial Academies, has an elite player development programme and is closely aligned to the IRFU elite provincial programmes. The programme is structured to enable the player to maximise his potential and the strategy is designed so that players realise their full potential. At Lansdowne FC we not only want to develop the elite professional but we want and encourage club players to achieve their maximum goals on and off thee pitch and to be a Lansdowne member for life.

If you want to be part of one of the best under 20 set ups in the country and want a competitive and enjoyable place to play rugby then send us an email ASAP (to elaynepower@lansdownerugby.com) as we would love to have you involved.

The major benefit is that all players can learn the same team plays and seamlessly step in for first team players when the occasion arises. The Lansdowne 2ndXV is always competitive and has a proud place in the history of the club.
