Good Afternoon from a dull but dry West Lodge,
Senior rugby returns to West Lodge tomorrow with the 1st XV taking on Peebles in a BT National 2 fixture. This is sure to be a tough game as Peebles are higher placed in the league and are always a difficult side to play against home or away. Our last outing at GHK was a defeat in an entertaining game with Whitecraigs looking great in attack but shaky in defence. Hopefully this will not be the case tomorrow and we will give a good account of ourselves. The kick off is at 3pm.
On Sunday the Micros are at home, the Minis away to Cumnock and the u16 team at home to Hillhead/Jordanhill.
The big news this week is that we have been awarded £24,125 from Scottish Rugby and £19,625 from Sports Scotland. These grants are to enable us to carry out a major refurbishment of Pitch 3 and to install 4No. 12-15m high floodlighting columns. The award represents 80% of the total costs, and the condition of granting this amount means we have to raise the 20% shortfall. This comes to circa £11,000.00. The total cost of the project is circa £55000.
