At present, the Club remains shut and NO rugby activity or organised training is permitted. The Clubhouse also remains closed.

Scottish Rugby will be issuing new guidelines tomorrow (10 July) following today’s announcement by the Scottish Government of a further relaxation of the lockdown. The Club will then review the position over the weekend and provide an update early next week. We have two teams working on re-opening activities – one on the Return to Rugby, the other on re-opening the facilities.

Club President, Ken Richardson, talks about the process and how we will implement the phased plan at Linlithgow Rugby Club. Click on the link below to view the video:

18 June 2020

Digging into the archives, we came across a feature from 2014, when a number of the Club’s youth members had a special training session with past Scotland star and current Scottish Rugby ambassador, Chris Paterson. The matches we feature this week both come from autumn 2015 and cover a high scoring home win for the Reds and a hard fought away Cup win for an understrength U18 side:

Training with Chris Paterson

Nine lucky Reds’ youngsters made the trip through to Murrayfield for a special visit and training session with Chris Paterson.

Stewart ducks in for Winning Try!

Breadalbane  17 – 20  Linlithgow

Scottish U18 Shield

The Young Reds started this match with only 14 players and finished with 13 because of injuries. Going into the final minutes they were trailing and under the cosh, when Gregor Stewart intercepted the ball and weaved 80 metres through defenders and a paddling of ducks, that had just alighted on the pitch, to score the winning try.
