Super Series to be disbanded *CLUB STATEMENT* - Stirling County RFC

Super Series to be disbanded *CLUB STATEMENT*

Stirling County RFC has made the following statement along with its fellow Super Series clubs following Scottish Rugby’s decision to disband the Super Series:


We, the current Super Series Clubs, are obviously disappointed that the Scottish Rugby Union Club Rugby Board and Performance department did not recommend to the Scottish Rugby Limited Board that Super Series continues. We do, however, accept the decision and look forward to competing in the upcoming Sprint Series.

We were informed of the decision on Wednesday 14th February. We were surprised at the lack of consultation through the process and the detail in what comes next, however, we have confidence in Keith Wallace and Stevie Gemmell delivering a transition plan that sees Super Series clubs supported through what will be a very challenging period.

We have received assurances that there will not be a detrimental impact on the six clubs as they return their business and rugby models fully back to club rugby.


While everyone at Stirling County RFC is disappointed with the news that Scottish Rugby has decided to disband the Super Series, the club remains committed to building on the success of 2023. It will continue to strive to become the most professional amateur rugby club in the country.

As current Super Series Champions, Stirling Wolves begin training for the upcoming Sprint Series on Monday and are looking forward to playing in front of their supporters for the first time since lifting the trophy back in November.

Stirling County Women’s 1st XV are reigning Scottish Champions and everyone at Bridgehaugh is so proud of all of the players who have since been selected to play for both Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh Rugby in the Celtic Challenge League.

While ambiguity remains over what division the Men’s 1st XV’s will be playing in moving forward off the back of Scottish Rugby’s decision, we have made it clear to the union that we expect that Stirling County be returned to the highest level of amateur rugby in Scotland. We remain in communication with them about this process and in the meantime the whole squad is dedicated to finishing their National Two season on a high.

We had three teams at the National Youth Cup Finals at Murrayfield in December. We are hugely excited about the health and potential for growth of our youth sections under the guidance of Director of Rugby Keith Russell.

Refurbishments continue at Bridgehaugh as we work towards making the club a hub of the local Stirling community. Our vision is that it becomes somewhere that players, members, and locals can utilise and enjoy throughout the week.

The new corporate boxes at the back of the main stand will be available for the start of the Sprint Series along with the Parker Suite. Work on a new admin and office hub will be completed by the end of this month before we turn our attention to the full refurbishment of the main bar area.

We are proud of the success we were able to make of Stirling Wolves and how they returned Men’s Rugby in Stirling to the very top of the Scottish Rugby pyramid, their achievements will remain part of the history of the County forever.

The future is bright at Bridgehaugh.
