Effingham & Leatherhead R.F.C., known as the “Eagles”, is a competitive, but social Club, based at the King George V Playing Fields (‘KGV’), Browns Lane, Effingham in Surrey UK, 20 miles SW of London and is currently one of Surrey’s premier league sides. The Club 1st XV plays in London 2 South West.  For match days and training sessions we take pride in minimizing the impact of traffic on the surrounding community.

We are always looking for players in all positions and of all playing abilities and ages capable of playing in either of one of our four senior teams or in our Junior or Mini sections.

Training at KGV is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, under floodlights, starting at 7.30 p.m.

This is how you find “The Eagles” Clubhouse

The club has excellent parking facilities. For match days and training sessions we take pride in minimizing the impact of traffic on the surrounding community. We ask everyone travelling to the club by car to co-operate with our guidance about where, and where not, to park.

Directions from the M25

Exit the M25 at J10 and take the A3 towards Guildford. Take the first left, signposted “Effingham”, which is on the slip road before you reach the main A3 carriageway. Follow this road past the Black Swan pub to the end. Turn right at the end of the road and immediately left. Pass Effingham Junction Station and follow this road for approximately 1.5 miles going over 2 mini roundabouts until you reach a set of traffic lights. Turn left at the traffic lights and first left into Browns Lane. The entrance to the King George V Playing Fields is first on the right. Once you are in the carpark you will see the long main building, and the clubhouse is the left-most (northern) end of this. It is clearly signed.

Directions from London

Take the A3 south out of London towards Guildford. Take the exit for the M25, but do not go onto the M25. Head straight on at the roundabout (seemly back onto the A3) and take the first left signposted “Effingham”, which is on the slip road before you reach the main A3 carriageway. (i.e. do not go back onto the A3). See remaining directions from M25.
