Happy Birthday to Us!

50 Years Old

50 years ago, Linlithgow Rugby Club was re-founded (it had a previous short existence in the 1920s).  At a meeting held on Tuesday 17th November 1970 in a back room of the Star and Garter Hotel the Club was formed and a few days later on Saturday 21st November 1970, Linlithgow Rugby Club played its first match away to another newly formed Club, Currie RFC. In today’s ‘lockdown’ existence, we cannot gather to celebrate this birthday, so best wishes to everyone who’s been involved with the Club over these 50 years and all our friends in rugby from far and wide!
