Senior Mens Rugby

Enniskillen Rugby Football Club men's section have existed since the formation of the club in 1925 and now now consists three senior mens teams.

The First XV have a distinguished history in ulster rugby and have been ever present in the ulster qualifying ranks in recent years, and particularly in the Ulster Towns cup, one of the oldest competitions in rugby history, in which the first XV have always performed well; having recently reached the final in 2007 only to marginally lose out to local rivals Clogher Valley RFC, and have since featured numerous times in the quarter and semi-final stages of the tournament pursuing that elusive piece of silverware.

Maintaining their place in the highly competitive qualifying one league for many years, the First XV were unfortunate to suffer relegation to Qualifying Two in 2010 following a poor season but have since made great strides seeking promotion to their former status, the most successful being the 2012/13 season under Alasdair Mckee in which they led the Qualifying Two league for a substantial part of the season before ultimately coming away with a third place finish.

They have since gained promotion back into Qualifying One in the 2015/16 season with a second place league finish. This was a historical season which also witnessed a Town's Cup Final in which the 1st XV pushed a rampant Bangor, who also achieved promotion to the All Ireland leagues that season, to a very close scoreline before unfortunately conceding the final.

Plenty of success has been enjoyed throughout the other ranks of the club throughout the last decase as the Third XV have twice claimed the Forster Cup, first in the 2005/06 season and again in 2009/10. Additionally the Third XV recently won theirMinor League South division in the 2013/14 season.

Currently a young team with an abundance of talent and potential there are surely some exciting years ahead for the ERFC men.
