Our history

Bannockburn Rugby Club was founded in 1978 by former pupils of St. Modan's High School in Stirlingshire, beginning life as St. Modan's Former Pupils RFC.

The club played its first match in 1979 against HMS Neptune and entered the Midland league in 1980. In 1982, the club joined the Glasgow leagues where they stayed until 1994, before rejoining the Midlands set up.

The club's name was changed to Bannockburn Rugby Club in 1996. In the 2000-01 season, the club reached the dizzy heights of the National leagues for the first time.

Notable Bannockburn Rugby alumni include Newcastle prop George Graham and Scotland B player Eddie Pollock.

Present day

Bannockburn Rugby Club's senior men's team play their rugby in the Tennent's Caledonia Midlands 4 league in Scottish Rugby's Caledonia region.

In recent years, the club has focused on the development of its thriving mini and midi section. Aimed at bringing through the next generation of rugby talent in the local area, the club has worked hard to forge links with local schools. Bannockburn Rugby Club are also founding members of the Forth Valley Association of Rugby Clubs.
