Liberton FP Rugby Football Club was founded in 1963 by a group of former pupils of Liberton High School led by Norrie Speakman who was the first captain to offer former pupils of Liberton High School facilities to continue playing rugby after leaving school.
Liberton produced some fantastic players, most notably the late great Bruce Hay, who went on to become a Scotland Internationalist and then became a British Lion, captaining them when they toured New Zealand.
The club went from strength to strength and in the 1970s the current clubhouse was built.
2013 saw the club celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary. The rugby team had gone through quite a few lean years in terms of playing numbers and results but in the 50th Anniversary season the players really stepped up to the mark and won there first promotion in well over 30 years and were also awarded the East Regional Bowl to complete an unprecedented double.
