History

Bannockburn Rugby Club was started by former pupils from St Modan's High School in Stirling. Playing under the banner of St Modans FP's until the name was changed in 1996 to Bannockburn Rugby Club.

The club play their home matches at the Bluebellwood Clubhouse sited in Bannockburn and presently run two senior XVs and also have a mini/midi setup which meet on a Sunday morning. The club played their first match in 1979 against HMS Neptune and entered the Midland league in 1980 until they joined the Glasgow set up in 1982 where they stayed until 1994 before rejoining the Midlands set up.

In the 2000-01 season the club reached the heady heights of gaining promotion into the National leagues for the first time in their history. The club has also produced some players who have since gone onto greater things with other clubs, namely Newcastle Prop George Graham and Scotland B player Eddie Pollock.
