Sophie Langford's International Success
Sophie Langford's International Success30 Aug 2022
The youth rugby programme at HKFC has a long list of players who have gone on to success abroad. Recent names include Cameron Henderson and Dan John who have made appearances in the Gallagher Premiership, and Iain Carmichael who recently featured for Scotland U20s in the U20s Summer Series.
Sophie Langford now joins that list having been selected in the U18 Scotland Futures squad, with Sophie being named captain of the Scotland U18 7s team that competed in the U18s Championships in July 2022. Sophie started playing rugby at HKFC in the U10s age group. When asked of her most fond memories of HKFC, Sophie says “My favourite memory would have to be winning the U14s league two seasons in a row, the first time undefeated. The New Year’s Day Tournaments were also one of my best memories and something I definitely missed being a part of when I moved away”. Having now experienced her first taste of international rugby, Sophie is hungry to further pursue her Olympic Dream, with one of her main rugby goals being to win gold at the Olympics in Rugby 7s. We at HKFC are so proud of Sophie and all of her achievements, and will continue to support her on her rugby journey.
