Mother’s Day, 26th March!

The minis enjoyed glorious spring sunshine on a trip to Bishopton for a three way tie including Cartha Queens Park and some very tasty burgers. We fielded teams from p1 right through to p7 with strong showings throughout the squads who were all very thankful to their Mums for letting them play on such an important day! The minis will break for the Easter holiday, returning to action at Hughenden (weather and groundskeeper allowing) on 23 April for training at 1130. For more details, get in touch using our contact form.

Under 16s Update

Due to the schools October break, no Club games have been scheduled over the past two weeks. This has given us a chance to “lick our wounds” after two pretty serious maulings from Cambuslang and Hawks respectively. Our much younger and lighter squad stuck to their task gamely and are beginning to put together some good phases of play. The physicality of the opposition eventually tells however and despite some trenchant defending from a solid core of players, we begin to lose touch.

The really positive news, however, is that our squad has grown to 22 boys who are all keen to learn. They really enjoy the training sessions and Rory, David, Daryll and Innes (Rory’s younger, bigger and better looking brother) deserve great credit for building a really positive team spirit.

Our remaining league games are against: Cartha QP (A) on Oct 30th, Oban (A) on 6th Nov, Udd/Way/Drum (A) on 13th Nov, Cambuslang (H) on 20th Nov and Cartha QP (H) on 27th Nov. Kick off is normally at 2pm.

We would be delighted to see as many Hills supporters as possible at any or all of our games – the boys and coaches deserve as much backing from the Club as possible.
The Over 16

Hills Under 16 Boys v Uddingston/Waysiders

Hills played their first match of the season at Hughenden yesterday with a very young squad of 17 players drawn from Hyndland Secondary, Hillhead High School and Jordanhill School.

On a blustery day, Hills were asked to play into the wind, which added to their difficulties against a visiting team which had already played 4 games. Despite some excellent defence in the tight areas, the boys struggled when the opposition moved the ball wider and found themselves down 0-24 at half time.

The interval gave the team some time to regroup, and the second half commenced with the boys in full flight, driven on by a strong tailwind and the well chosen words of coach David Brown.

The 2nd half ended 12-12, with Hills scoring two excellent tries through Hussain Mohsan and our captain Ayrton To, with one conversion from Finn Stewart, as well as being thwarted a few times by last ditch defence, after some excellent driving forward play.

All 17 boys deserve great credit for performing so well in their first outing against more experienced and much heavier opposition.

Final score: Hills 12 v Uddingston/Waysiders 36

Hills Ladies Work Hard Under the Hughenden Lights

Every Wednesday evening during the season, the “Hills” Ladies are to be found training hard at Hughenden. At the end of a tough session, ahead of their home Sunday fixture vs Stirling County which was supervised by head Coach Dean Kelbrick and his assistant Graeme Blackhall, Dean reported “This was a really good session and for once the weather conditions were excellent. The girls, some twenty three in total, worked very hard and we were able to mix some conditioning with game play situations. All the girls bought into what Graeme and I were trying to coach.” Hills Ladies kick off at 14.00 this Sunday, the 11th September.

Rio Olympian Relaxes at Hughenden

Pictured at the side of the Hughenden training pitch, Ross Murdoch, member of the Great Britain Rio Olympic Swimming Squad. Speaking to The Bunnet, Ross said “I am enjoying my downtime from swimming, but I’ll soon be back at my studies at Stirling and back in the pool. My sights are set firmly on Tokyo in 2020 but before then it’s the Gold Coast in 2018 for the Commonwealth Games.” Some motivation!!! Modesty came in the way of asking exactly what brought Ross to Hughenden, but the smart money was on a growing interest in the Hills Ladies team!! Clearly Hughenden on Wednesday evenings is the place to be!!

Match Report from Split, Croatia – 3rd September 2016

Everyone associated with “Hills” rugby unites to send their best wishes to TONCI and ANA who were married yesterday in their home town in Croatia. This is a tremendous outcome to Tonci’s recovery from the brink of the abyss of his broken neck on their 28th September 2015. It is a tribute to both Tonci’s strength of character and Ana’s support that this stage in their journey has been reached successfully. 
The social and personal page in this mornings’ Split Herald notes that the groom was attended by Hunter Kirkpatrick and AJ McFarlane while the bride had two of her ladies in waiting Mrs Jaqueline Kirkpatrick and Iris Source.
