The current club was founded in 1968 after the original Hall Russell shipyard works team became defunct in 1958.

Business development director Mike Innes, himself a keen football fan like many of his Hall Morrice colleagues, says,

“Hall Morrice is delighted to be kit sponsor for the new Hall Russell under 18s team.  I know from personal experience how important it is to provide youngsters at this age a clear pathway into the adult leagues.

“We wish Gordon and his team the best of luck for the season ahead.”

Gordon Davidson, head coach for the team says of the sponsorship,

“Hall Russell United’s under 18 ‘development’ squad is participating for the first time in the Scottish Highland Football League’s Youth Programme this season.  This allows for the continuing development of young players beyond their boy’s club teams and the squad represents Hall Russell United’s first foray into development football.  It is hoped that players will continue their development from boy’s club to junior football and hopefully beyond with the squad consisting of players from several city clubs. 

“The new squad has made a good start to the season with a win and a narrow defeat.  The squad play their matches on a Monday evening with the young players enjoying the experience of playing under the floodlights at many Highland League and junior grounds.  Sponsorship is obviously vital to ensure the squad can play at this level and Hall Russell United are delighted to have secured Hall Morrice as a key sponsor for the squad and thank them for their generosity.”
