Brown set for 300-game milestone at Highland Rugby Club


By Andrew Henderson


Kevin Brown is set to make a landmark 300th appearance for Highland Rugby Club in the Scottish Cup this weekend.

The 32-year-old made his debut in November 2003, having come through the age groups at Canal Park, and has played for Highland ever since.

Having just come back from an ankle injury that forced him to spend a spell on the sidelines, the hooker has had to wait to finally reach the milestone.

But after returning to the starting-15 in last week’s win over Boroughmuir for appearance number 299, it is set to happen against Stirling Wolves tomorrow.

“It’s quite exciting to reach that landmark,” Brown said.

“I’m obviously delighted to have played as many games as I have with Highland, especially in recent years with the success we’ve been having.

“I got the opportunity to play pretty young, and other guys went off to uni but I stayed in Inverness.

“Highland is the only club I’ve ever played for, and I’m delighted about it. Hopefully I’ll get to 300 and keep going for a few more on top of that as well.”
