Playing Information


In the season 1996/1997, the Club were playing in the Old National League Division 2 and were in many ways in the shadow of their long time local rivals the Gordonians. An ambitious 5 year plan saw the Club rise to Premier 1 in Season 2000/2001. The Club finished in the top half of this league for 5 seasons before being relegated in 2007.

The Club regained P1 status in Season 2010/2011 and consolidated this position during Season 2011/2012, becoming members of the new streamlined 10 team Premiership. In 2012/2013 the club finished 5th, missing British & Irish involvement by one point and won the Caledonia Cup. We also hold the Bill McLaren Shield having wrested it from Ayr at the end of the season encounter at Rubislaw. The club also reached the semi-final of the prestigious Melrose 7’s losing out to Saracens in extra time.

The Club fields three senior sides in the Premiership, National Reserve 1 and Caledonia leagues. The Club is the driving force behind Aberdeen Youth Rugby Association, which provides rugby coaching in all participating secondary and primary schools throughout the city of Aberdeen. In addition to our commitment to community sport through AYRA, we have Stuart Corsar as the Club’s development officer.

We currently have around 250 players under the age of 18 playing at the Club. We have a successful junior section ranging in age from 4 years to 18 years. The Club fields teams at every age level in local and national competitions.

Anyone wishing to join the Club or to assist in any way should contact Graham Barron or Mike Cox whose details are contained within the contact sheet within the programme.


Coaching and training sessions for the senior playing squads are held at Rubislaw Playing Fields on Tuesday and Thursday evenings commencing at 6:15pm. During holiday periods the timings may vary and will be advised by the Coaches.
