IMG_2060_1024Hello Hillfoots!


Summer Tag Rugby

Summer Tag Rugby series continues this  Friday 3rd June 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.  Fingers crossed for the weather!!!

Bob McKillop has very kindly volunteered his time to run Friday evening training sessions 1900 – 2000 (every week) for P7 to S2 age groups.  We have had 21 enthusiastic boys at training last week and we hope that figure will grow and keep them engaged over the summer.

Hillfoots StallDollar Gala this Saturday from 1300

We would love to see as many of our players come along to the Dollar Gala day to have a go at our assault course and to support our Tug of War team!
