The women’s section was started in 1995 by ex-Glasgow University player Liz Stewart. Most of the women playing in that first ever team had never picked up a rugby ball before. Snice then, the team has risen through the leagues, winning the Scottish Premier League for the first time in 2010/11 and again in 2013/14. The team achieved the league and cup double in 2012/13, winning the Cup Final at BT Murrayfield with a last-minute try against Royal High Corstorphine.
Over the years, several players from the club have gained international honours for Scotland Women 15’s and 7’s, such as former Scotland captain Susie Brown and the current most-capped player Heather Lockhart. Most recently, three Hillhead Jordanhill players – Jade Konkel, Lana Skeldon and Louise McMillan – along with 13 other female players in the country became part of the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy, a new initiative to promote the development of top players in Scotland.
Women’s training takes place on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Hughenden.
All sessions begin at 7:00pm sharp and run to 8:30pm.
Our women’s coaching team consists of Dean Kelbrick and Graeme Blackhall.
As always, we warmly welcome new players to the club and can assure all of competitive and enjoyable rugby at Hills.
