#88 – Stories From… Bannockburn and Haddington rugby clubs.

Welcome to another episode of ‘Stories From…’ where I share anecdotes, stories, and interesting tidbits from my journey around Scotland on the 2022 edition of The Great Rugger Run.

This week there are stories from Bannockburn Rugby Club where I interrupt DoR, Jimmy Samuel from a session of digging holes with his mini-digger. We spoke about the new floodlights, the new pitch, how they got their gym, some awesome revenue-generating catering facilities, and how they’ve turned the revenue model of the club upside-down. They also have a connection to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and were visited by The Good, The Bad, and The Rugby!

Then we travel to Haddington Rugby Club where I chat with the remarkable Keith Wallace – recently voted in as SRU Vice-President! Keith is an absolute force of nature and is a rugby man through and through. Join us in the clubhouse where Keith talks me through a ton of memorabilia with some cracking stories about former players.
