    Stirling County and Scotland rugby player dies

    Written by on December 1, 2021

    Tributes are being paid to a Stirling County and Scotland rugby player, after her sudden death.

    Siobhan Cattigan made 19 appearances for the national side – including all three games at this year’s Six Nations.

    Scottish Rugby say their thoughts are with Stirling County.

    In a statement, Stirling County said:

    “It’s with a heavy heart we pass on the news of the tragic passing of Siobhan (Shibby) on Friday 26th November.

    Shibby has been a big part of County for many years and will be hugely missed by everyone at the club. She was central to the development of women’s rugby within the club & an inspiration to the girls in the youth section.

    Shibby was a teammate & friend & we deeply mourn her loss. Our love, thoughts & heartfelt condolences are with Shibby’s family at this devastating time. We very much hope their privacy will be respected by everyone as they deal with their tragic loss.”
