As part of the club’s 50th anniversary celebrations, a small group has been working away behind the scenes for the past two years to document the club’s history so far. The finished product is finally ready!
From this weekend, you will have the chance to buy a copy of ‘Fifty Years Together’ – an incomplete history of Hillfoots Rugby Football Club. Incomplete? Well, despite over sixty interviews with club members past and present, weeks spent pouring over dusty archives, and months drafting and redrafting the text, it would be impossible to capture everything. But we’ve come pretty damn close!
As the back cover blurb puts it: Fifty years ago there was no rugby club in the Hillfoots. Today it is at the heart of our community. This book tells the story of those who made it possible.
The book launch will be on Saturday 13 November 2021 in the Clubhouse, Gerry Docherty will be in attendance accompanied by his assistants! The History will cost only £10 if you can pick it up from the Clubhouse. Should you want a copy posted to you, please click on the link below to send us your address details and then click on the Go-Cardless link to pay the £10 plus £5pp.
