Saturday 12th July saw the annual Aberdeen leg of the Scottish Touch Series take place at Woodside Sports Complex with 18 teams from around Scotland competing. The final saw Six Pack beat Hoodlums to claim the cup but the biggest event of the day was undoubtedly the grand reveal of the new Guerillas ‘home’ strips.

Guerillas are currently training on Monday evenings and the Aberdeen autumn league starts on Wednesday 30th July.

All set for Scotland’s biggest touch event

This Saturday 28th July 32 corporate teams will gather at Aberdeen’s Woodside Sports Complex for the Activitymix Decathlon Touch Rugby event. This will be the biggest 1-day tournament in Scotland this year with teams battling through pool stages then into up to three rounds of knock-outs for the honour of being declared 2012 champions.

The teams taking part reads as a who’s who of Aberdeen companies. Larger companies are in League 1, and those with fewer employees in League 2; full list below.

The last few league 1 finals have been played between Genesis and Wood Group with both teams having had their hands on the trophy. However with no Genesis this year the grand final will have a different look. Shell and BP have a strong record in the event and have also had mixed and mens teams competing in the 10 week Aberdeen summer touch league. (more…)

Aberdeen Touch Ball 11/11/11

On the 11th November 2011 Guerillas and several other Aberdeen clubs gathered at the Forum to let their hair down for the annual end of season ball and prize-giving. The event was well attended by Guerillas with over 3 tables of players making it along to party with, amongst others, Leopards, BP, NHS, Hoodlums and Subsea Sharks.

With Graeme Buchan standing down as event organiser and compère the microphone was handed to Guerillas Simon and Mark to MC the evening in their own inimitable style. After spending many years running the Aberdeen leagues and weekend events Graeme is stepping back to concentrate on other things but it is worth taking a moment to consider his contribution to the sport in Aberdeen and this was recognised with a presentation on the evening.

Guerillas secure Aberdeen’s top two league titles

Going into the final round of matches activitymix Granite Guerillas needed a win over Genesis to  seal a league championship. As it turned out there was a slightly anti-climactic end to a long campaign as with Genesis only being able to field 4 players the game was conceded and a friendly played instead. However a win is a win and this means the team remained unbeaten through 10 league games, bringing to an end a 7 year Surf Rescue / Meerkats title run. (more…)


On Saturday 7th May two Guerillas teams gathered at Woodside for the Aberdeen Spring tournament. The activitymix Guerillas (the ‘A’ team) were looking to bag as many points as possible to add to our Aberdeen Touch Series (ATS) total and we also had enough players for a full second squad of activitymix Guerillas Killer Bees.

Of note for this event was the rise of the clubs, with half the teams taking part coming from just four clubs. Superhands and Leopards have been able to turn out two teams to a number of recent events. However this was also the first away tournament that Stirling Touch has sent two teams to and Guerillas registered two teams in a weekend tournament for the first time in some time.

The ‘A’ team’s first game was against Superhands Academy. The method by which Superhands split their players between their two teams is always a mystery,  although there was speculation that their constitution mandates a minimum number of French speakers in each team. As it was the Academy team featured some of the more experienced players as the spine of the team, along with some newer faces. (more…)


We’ve had enough interest in the spring tournament on Saturday 7th May to register a second team. This is the first time we’ve been able to do this for a tournament early in the season and an indication of the growth in club numbers and the commitment of new players. Further good news is that with Mark coming runner-up in the Six Nations fantasy league this team entry comes free of charge! So well done Mark.

Still some spaces left for this tournament so if you haven’t already done so contact Senga to say you are available.
