Summer Tag Rugby

Summer Tag Rugby series continues this  Friday 20 May 16 at 1800hrs.  The aim is to get everyone playing together: from the Tigers, 1st XV, Veterans as well as Mums and Dads!  The format will enable all standards to have a fun and play, as well as having a social BBQ.  For the food, it will be a case of bring your own meat (or whatever you want to BBQ) as well as something for a salad, which we can all share.

Hillfoots CoachP7 to S2 Summer Training

Bob McKillop has very kindly volunteered his time to run Friday evening training sessions 1900 – 2000 for P7 to S2 age groups.  While this may seem like an early pre-season but we had 12 enthusiastic boys at training last week and we hope that figure will grow and keep them engaged over the summer.

Wheelchair Extravaganza 2016

With the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro fast approaching, it is anticipated that Scotland will have a large number of athletes competing as part of the Great Britain team.  Para Sport has a much higher profile than ever before thanks to the London 2012 Paralympic Games and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.  This event will build on this legacy to ensure that people are aware of the opportunities across the country.  The Wheelchair Sports Extravaganza has been introduced in 2016 in partnership with Wheelchair Sports Clubs, Stirling University and other national sporting governing bodies in Scotland.

The event is designed to allow people to experience a wide range of Wheelchair Sports delivered by some of the best clubs and coaches available in Scotland. We have selected activities where we have strong club links so participants can continue to enjoy and develop within the sports for many years to come.  The Wheelchair Sports Extravaganza is about providing a range of opportunities for people who use a wheelchair for sport to try new and exciting sports and learn more about the pathways that are available throughout the country.  Furthermore, the event will highlight the opportunities for people with disabilities to achieve at the highest level and hopefully inspire them to become our stars of the future.  A selection of sports wheelchairs will be available for use at the event.  This event is free and is being supported by Awards for All.

If you use a wheelchair for sport or know someone that would like to get involved in sport and would like to attend please register by telephoning Scottish Disability Sport on 0131 317 1130 or alternatively email [email protected].

Hillfoots Dinner Dance 2014


The Dinner Dance is Hillfoots’ social event of the year – the one night when all sections of the club get together to celebrate our achievements across the season.  And what a season – the 2014 Dance is sure to be one to remember!


We’ve seen record numbers in the Junior Section, from the Tag Tigers right through.  Our U16s took the Caledonia Midlands league by storm in their debut season, losing only one game and winning the title.  Not content with the league in the bag, the boys also made it to the final of the Caledonia Youth Bowl, finishing runners-up to Perthshire.


Not to be outdone, the seniors have also enjoyed their fair share of success!  Our 1st XV has more than made up for a disappointing season last year – rejuvenated by new Head Coach, Stuart McGee – the boys wrapped up Caledonia Division 2 Midlands at the weekend, beating Kinross 42-0 and continuing their undefeated run.   


In a difficult season, the 2nd XV continue to field a team in Caledonia Division 4 Midlands.  In only their second year out of the reserve leagues, they have recorded some great wins over local rivals Alloa and Stirling County.


And who could forget our infamous Cast Tups?  The veterans’ side is well known across the country – and internationally! – for their special brand of rugby, keeping old friendships and rivalries going retirement after retirement!  In a big year for the Tups, the guys will travel to Beauvais to help our old friends celebrate their 50th Anniversary in May, before hosting the Scottish Golden Oldies Festival in Tillicoultry in August. 


So, there will be much to celebrate at the Devonvale Hall on Saturday 26th April.  More than a decade has passed since Hillfoots last fielded a league-winning 1st XV, and with the continuing success of the Youth Section, the future is looking bright. 


Please come and help us celebrate everything that makes Hillfoots special.  Tickets for the dance are available now for just £25; including a three course dinner and entertainment.  The evening gets underway at 6.30pm, with dinner served at 7pm followed by the awards ceremony.  Then it’s party time!


You can reserve your tickets via the details below:

Junior Section – please see Mike Power or JP Ward

Seniors – tickets are available at the bar, or by emailing Derek Paterson ([email protected])


If you have any questions, please contact Derek on the email above.
