About Us

BHSFP Currently play in Ulster Rugby Qualifying League 3 and the continued success on the pitch is the key priority for the club, looking to build on an already solid playing base and expand the ever widening appeal of the club. As with every club we have been through our ups and downs, coming close to folding on a few occasions, but the resolution of our members enabled the club to survive. Over the years the club has experienced some notable periods of success, a McCrea Cup win in 80’s, back to back promotions from Q4 to Q2 in 2007, narrowly missing out on promotion to Q1 in a Playoff with Ballymoney in a year where the 2nd XV also won their league. More recently the 1st XV won Q4 in 2015 and the current 2nd XV won back to back Regional Leagues in 2017 and 2018 and the Regional Championship in 2017

Belfast High School Former Pupils RFC was founded in 1958 not long before the present Belfast High School moved to its current premises at Jordanstown. At its formation the club played its games at the School grounds. A Major decision by members some 30 years ago resolved the issue of a permanent base when the club agreed to join an overarching sports club while maintaining its own identity. Greenisland War Memorial Sports Club, which at the time comprised of individual sporting associations involved in Cricket, Ladies Hockey and Bowls was to become the new home of BHSFP RFC. Over the years Greenisland has proved significant in solidifying player numbers and was somewhere we could call our home.

BHSFP has a rich tradition as a touring side be it through our close links with Birkmyre RFC in Scotland to venturing further afield with international tours to Amsterdam, Barcelona and more recently Warsaw.

 

BHSFP have had considerable success on tour, winning the Bowl at the Amsterdam 7’s in 2005 and reaching the final of the Warsaw 10’s in our most recent tour in 2018. During these tours the club has made strong connections with teams from throughout Europe and as far afield as the middle east with clubs wishing to come to play us and enjoy some Old Boys hospitality.

The club continues to make great links with the community from our charitable work with the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice through to the development of the next generation of High School players through our Mini and Youth rugby Programmes. We would also like to send a special thanks to our sponsors as this would all be impossible without your continued support.
