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.
Since 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 and gripped the Cup again in 2016-17.
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.
As always, we warmly welcome new players to the club and can assure all of competitive and enjoyable rugby at Hills. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or use the e-form below.
