Back to Level 4

With effect from Friday 20th November we’re back in near lockdown. The Club Gym will close again and the Clubhouse will remain locked.

The Wee Reds Minis (P4 to P7) will continue with training, according to the Level 4 guidelines, on Saturday mornings. Training for seniors, Young Reds and Wee Reds Micros will take a pause during the 3 week lockdown, with plans to resume from Saturday 12th December.

The Return to Rugby group will continue to monitor the situation and keep all members updated. We are hoping to be able to extend this season for all age groups into the summer if we are able to resume playing rugby by the Spring. We will endeavour to do what we can, within the agreed guidelines, to offer meaningful and fun rugby to all our members.

Happy Birthday to Us!

50 Years Old This Week

50 years ago to the week, 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!
