Adam Sinclair has returned to Stirling County to take a place in our Super6 squad for this season.
Adam (Sinky) has a long standing relationship with Stirling County as a club – having played from the age of eight. Alongside Adam’s rugby playing, he also owns a successful removal business, Sterling Sinclair Removals, having recently become a sponsor of Stirling County.
Following the last few weeks of training with the Super6 squad, we interviewed Adam ahead of the first Spring Series game.
What are your thoughts ahead of the upcoming season?
I think it will be a great season for all teams across the competition. I think we are looking sharp and I think the game will be quicker again than last year with lots of teams looking to play.
How has pre-season training been so far?
Pre-season has been great. I’ve been impressed with the professionalism of the players and coaches and also the young generation coming through at the club. Eddie, Ben and fellow coaches have the club in a great place.
What is your relationship with the sponsorship and club?
My relationship with the club and sponsor goes back to 2016 when I started Sterling Sinclair removals which has now become one of the biggest removal and storage companies in Scotland. I have hired over 17 Stirling county players full time and part time during this time.
What is your rugby background?
I started off playing at Stirling County at the age of eight, up until the age of 19, playing minis through to the first team at the age of 17. Following my time at Stirling, I went on to play professionally in South Africa for six months, France for 4 years for Perpignan and Albi before returning to the UK where I was on loan to Bristol, London Irish and Rotherham. I played one season on return to Scotland for Stirling County before leaving to play for Heriot’s for four seasons. I’m looking forward to completing my rugby career at Stirling County at my best – where it all started. I also played 17 times for Scotland u20s.
I am a Bannockburn lad originally, so Stirling is in my veins and I only want the best for the club to develop and keep improving. Everyone from the grass roots up puts in a lot of hard work.
I will dedicate this season to Ralph McNaught (former Stirling County legend) and play as hard as I can every time I pull on the jersey for him.
Ben Cairns, Head Coach, said,
“It is great to have Sincy back involved at the club. He is a local guy who has shown a real desire to return home and give back to County. He comes back to us after a successful period with Heriots and we see him using this experience to help drive our squad forward. Since day 1 he has fully committed to our programme, he has got himself in great shape to perform and we are really excited to see him put that County jersey back on in competitive league action”
