Since September 2022, GEW has been a proud co-sponsor of one of Sussex’s premier amateur rugby clubs, Haywards Heath RFC (HHRFC). Now that the 2023/4 season is underway, here’s an update on the team’s progress since then…
Haywards Heath’s 1st XV plays in the ‘Counties 2 Sussex’ League, which is the 8th tier of English rugby union competition. The team had an excellent season in 2022/3, finishing in a highly respectable 3rd place in the league table, with a season total of 55 points. The full table can be seen on the England Rugby website here.
To date, HHRFC’s 1st XV has also had a resounding start to the new season, with both home and away victories against Shoreham and Worthing III respectively. You can follow the team’s results and fixtures at any stage during the season, through the England Rugby website or by following these links. There’s also a full Counties 2 Sussex league table here.

With four players making their first team debuts and the squad wearing a new match kit, there was a new look for Heath at the beginning of the 2023/24 campaign. This promises to be an exciting season for the club with a growing squad of senior players meaning a 2nd XV squad was playing away at Hove Sea Serpents, and ongoing updates on the progress of the new clubhouse and the prospect of breaking ground this autumn being well received by Club members.
