BRFC Advert for new coach.

Following on from preliminary discussions at committee level the following advert has been posted on the SRU website and will appear in the national papers this weekend. Hopes are that applicants will be forthcoming for interview prior to the club making an appointment thereafter. There are a number of clubs in similar positions but we hope that our status and ambition will attract suitable candidates.


Head Coach at Biggar RFC

What we offer

Biggar RFC is in every sense a community club fully integrated into the life and fabric of the town and the surrounding area. The club is proud of its efforts and achievements over the years of being more than ‘just’ a rugby club. We have three adult teams, colts team, girls team and teams representing both primary and secondary pupils at every stage. With over 220 school age playing members, we are eternally grateful to the many coaches, parents, volunteers and helpers whose efforts continue to make Biggar such a welcoming and fun environment.

The club has excellent facilities to support players and coaches to be successful. These include recently upgraded playing, training and changing facilities. Season 14/15 will see us play in the second tier of domestic league rugby in National 1.

A competitive remuneration package will be available for the successful candidate.


What we are looking for

The last couple of seasons has seen the first XV results in the doldrums and the target for next season is to ensure the doldrums are left well behind! To achieve this target, the club is looking for someone with an inventive rugby brain who has the people skills to build positive relationships and the ability to get the best out of players. From the very beginning Biggar RFC has been an ambitious and forward looking club keen to play at the highest level we can. We want a coach who shares that ambition and commitment. Someone who can also bring a smile to faces and create an environment where players enjoy their rugby.

Colts Reunion

Biggar Colts of season 1993/94 have organised a 20th Anniversary reunion to celebrate their success in winning the Scottish under-18 Championship in 1994. Principal organisers Stuart Harrison, Graham Watson and Grant Sutherland have managed to contact all their team-mates with, at the time of writing, just a handful unable to make the trip and all those for very good reasons - namely that they are currently living abroad!!


In addition to the players, several parents are also going to attend the luncheon which is to be held in the Hartree Mill clubhouse on Saturday 26th April. There are still spaces available and so, if on reading this article you feel that you would wish to be there, please get in contact with Stuart (07753573492).


Coach at the time was the late Rod Craise who maintained a coaching diary in which he recorded all his thoughts of games during the season and in the Cup run . It makes fascinating reading and will certainly trigger a host of memories for those who played.


Importantly, if you have any photographs of any of the players or any of the games please get them to Stuart who will then either display them on the day or get them onto a disc which will play during the afternoon. In particular, is there anyone out there who still has a copy of the video taken of the Cup Final? The game was played at Boroughmuir. It would be great to have it playing on the day - just to remind some of those present of how fast they were..........!!!


See you there?


As the "old" colts dont have any photos they are willing to publish on the website, here is one of this years team which has had a great run of success and taken after their final match last  week at Livingston.
