History & Honours

Stepping up!

The club has a proud history of producing representative players from county level through to student and even amateur internationals.

Until 2012 we hadn't had any of our players sign professional forms but one or two had come very close. Most notably Oliver Johnson, who had an extended run in the Super League under 20's competition with Harlequins RLFC (now London Broncos) and although he wasn't offered terms with the Super League side Championship 1 club London Skolars did offer a contract but the terms weren't enough to prize the player from his day job. Also in 2012 Andrew Hoggins had been offered terms by North Wales Crusaders but declined due to the travelling involved.

Then in November 2012 both players attended trials at newely formed Championship 1 side Oxford RLFC and were offered terms, signing professional forms a couple of weeks before the official press release came out announcing Southampton Spitfires first ever players to make the step up to 'the big leagues'.

The following lists are updated annually.
