Luctonians Sports Club is an English sports club based in Kingsland, Herefordshire. The rugby union team currently plays in National League 2 North, the fourth tier of the English rugby union system, following their promotion from Midlands Premier at the end of the 2018-19 season via the play-offs. The club runs three senior sides and a full range of junior sides. Apart from rugby, Luctonians hosts the practice of cricket, golf, cycling, having also a netball section for women.[1]

Ground[edit]

Luctonians play home games at Mortimer Park on Hereford Road in the village of Kingsland - about 4 miles from the nearest town, Leominster.[2] Ground capacity is around 2,500 - a figure that includes 300 seated in the modern grandstand (completed in 2013) - with the rest standing space.[3] Due to its rural location the only access to Mortimer Park is by car, although there is ample parking space.

On 27 April 2019, Luctonians achieved a record attendance of 1,757, who watched them defeat Blaydon in the Midlands-North play-off game to achieve promotion to National League 2 North.
