Team Notes: Formed in 1989 as a result of the merger between Edinburgh Blue Eagles and Capital/Lothian Clansmen. Entered the CGL in 1989 and registered a 5-5 season. Played in BNGL in 1990 finishing with a 6-4-0 record. Al-Penn White quarterbacked the Phoenix in 1991, leading them to a 7-3-0 record, before leaving at the beginning of the 1992 season. Won the 1991 BNGL National Scottish Conference, but a BNGL decision to reverse their win over Clydesdale Colts due to the Phoenix playing unregistered players meant the Colts took the title. The Phoenix appealed to BAFA and were reinstated in the playoffs, but the BNGL suspended the club so that the playoffs could continue without them. Owner Robert Orr said, "My lawyer said we could have had an injunction which would have halted the playoffs. It would have wrecked and bankrupted the league." But the players voted not to take the league to court. Penn-White quit the club in a dispute over money, and promptly signed for their rivals Glasgow Cyclones.
