Scottish Rugby chose Linlithgow Rugby Club as the location for their launch of the new Club Sustainability Fund.  SRU President Ian Rankin hosted the event with Club Services Manager Nick Rennie and Linlithgow’s Ken Richardson sharing the platform at the press launch.  With the new indoor training centre now complete, the opportunity was taken to use the facility as a backdrop for the event.

General Meeting Approves Development Plans

The General Meeting on 20 August 2013 was a big step forward in our developmental planning. The Meeting gave authority for the Executive to seek Building Control and issue tender forms for the redesigned facility. This milestone means that we are committed in principle to our new training facility – it just needs to be affordable!
