We are delighted to welcome back a previous Stirling County player to the club to join our Super6 squad for the upcoming season.
Liam Brims played rugby in his home county of Caithness up until the age of 18, before moving to Stirling University to study. During his time at Stirling University, he played for the University Rugby Club and also came to play for Stirling County Wolves.
The relationship between Stirling University and Stirling County continues to be important for the support and benefit of both organisations – the relationship has gone from strength to strength over the years.
He then moved to Falkirk for two seasons, during which he represented the Caledonia Red’s senior team.
After securing a job as a PE teacher at St Columba’s school, he moved to Glasgow Hawks, where he has played for the last 5 years and was vice captain of the club.
Liam commented on him joining the Stirling County Super6 team,
“I’m really happy to be back in Stirling where I have great memories. Having played for Stirling County Wolves previously, it’s fantastic to be coming back and taking things to the next level as part of County’s Super6 team. I’m looking forward to playing with some old and new faces whilst challenging myself at this level.”
Ben Cairns, Stirling County Super6 Head Coach, said,
“Brimsy is another player who has played for the club previously. However, he comes back to us a completely different player to the one who played for the club whilst studying at the University of Stirling. He has been a consistent performer for the Hawks in the Tennent’s Premiership for a number of years and was their Coaches Player of the Year this season. We are really looking forward to seeing Brimsy make that step up to Super6 and I know he is massively motivated by that challenge.”
