We are the Shrewsbury Lions

The Shrewsbury Lions are a junior rugby league club based in Shrewsbury. We cater for children from school year 2 and upwards and help them to transition from having no rugby experience at all to playing tag rugby and eventually playing full contact junior rugby.


Sessions are held on the 3G or grass rugby pitches at London Road Sports Centre, Shrewsbury SY2 6PR.
Sunday mornings 9.30am-10.30am.

Our focus is always on developing core skills through fun games, and flexibly adapting our sessions to suit every child’s confidence and physical abilities, to ensure a positive experience for all.

Our Coaches

Our coaches are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds but what is consistent is that all of them are kind, helpful, inspirational, enthusiastic and passionate about Rugby.

The Head Coach is Alex Smith who is a UKCC level 2 qualified coach, with 25 years of coaching adult and junior rugby and founder & co-owner of Diddy Rugby.
