Established in 2003, Doncaster Demons are the women’s playing arm of rugby at Castle Park. The team competes in the RFU Women’s League Competitions and over the seasons has racked up countless league wins, not to mention successes in cups and tournaments across the UK.  Several Demons have gone on to be selected for County and North of England honours.

The team also plays an active role in the local community and has developed strong links with local businesses and organisations to help support women’s rugby in the area.

Frequent ‘taster’ events at Castle Park, featuring appearances by the England squad, are just one of the ways we help to raise our regional and national profile.

Keen to be a Demon?

The Demons pride themselves on offering any player interested in joining the team, a warm welcome.

If you’re interested, training is led by RFU qualified coaches at Castle Park on Wednesdays, between 19.00 and 20.15.

While out of season training sessions often focus on building up your functional fitness, we switch to more specific conditioning and gameplay in the run up to the season. This helps to teach players about positional play and mimics the real-life situations which occur on the field.

Each season, the team works hard to retain as many players as possible.  However, the Demons are always on the look-out for new recruits and welcome any players looking to begin their career, or return to rugby after a period of injury, or leave.

Whatever your ability may be, the players and support staff will help you to grow and develop your confidence as a valued member of the team.

As the Demons is an amateur team, there is a heavy reliance on willing volunteers.

The team always welcomes support and applications from people who might be interested in helping the team succeed.  So, whether you are able to offer your services as a coach, match physiotherapist or just want to pitch in on matchdays, please contact the team manager on the email below.
