History

Blackheath Rugby Club a rugby club from the London, UK was affiliated to Kampala Rugby Club. Which had Kampala Old Boys as a member. Due to many number of local and expatriates’ players a second side was formed in 1960. Blackheath’s second side wore black/red socks and was named Heathens. In recognition of the affiliation Kampala wore red/black socks which were the same as Blackheath’s second side and the second sided was named Heathens hence the birth of the team Heathens. Heathens normally played their games on Wednesday evenings against teams like Namilyango, Makerere College School etc However, during Amin’s time in the 70’s the team Heathens ceased to be since most of the players were expatriates.

The resurgence of Heathens:

In 1985 by Paul Volrath and Paul Cockerill alongside Jerry Burley and a host of others resurrected the team. In 1987 Ian Walker and Paul Volrath continued the earlier works and the name Heathens for the team was maintained.
