Caithness away, marth 14th 2009. Alway a tough place to play. This was the early stages of the clubs journey climbing up the leagues. @ Whitecraigs Rugby Club
This will be the first of hopefully many Friday Flashbacks, which will look at the club from yesteryear in the hope to bring back some good memories, connect members, former member and opposition players who have lost touch over the year.
This was inspired by a clear out of the club prior to lockdown. We found a number of ‘fossils’ and ‘Artifacts’ like Graeme Scott, Davies Elder and Ronnie Barr, old (un)raffle prizes and matchday programmes. This lead to talking to older club members and reminiscing of the old club and the move to West Lodge. If you have old programmes or Merchandise, picture please message and we can collate them and use them for future posts.
Leave comments, get tagging and have fun.
This week we look at Whitecraigs v Hutchesons Aloysians (Now GHA) from Saturday 13th September 1997

Whitecraigs Rugby Club has been looking at some different ways to raise funds to aid the club through the current pandemic and future limits on when we return to play. We’ve decided to set an ambitious challenge to try and get everyone from the club to work together and hopefully raise some funds as well. The challenge has been set as a virtual tour to the 3 stadiums Scotland would of been playing at in the summer tests. It’s roughly 25,000km so we’re looking for all the players and their families to help contribute towards the kilometres and to donate whatever they can.
To register your kilometres all you need to do is create a free Strava account and join the dedicated challenge climb (Strava Name in Bio) and then record your walks/runs/cycles/swims on Strava.
There is also a just giving page for donations : http://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/whitecraigs-scottish-summer-tour-challenge
Were hoping to complete the challenge before the first home game of the season so the more family and friends you can get to take part the easier it will be!
I am glad to announce our very good neighbours G77 Vehicle Wash & Valeting Centre are Open for business at Whitecraigs Rugby Club.

Hi All, you will see a Christmas Tree in our lounge at the club which is the “Tree of Kindness”. This is to provide and give less privileged children a gift for Christmas. Please take a tag from the tree and on the reverse will state the age and gender of the child to buy a gift for and submit to the rugby club by December 2nd.
