Good Morning from the sunny and clear blue skies of the Canaries,
You will gather from the above I am not in Glasgow but on holiday and by the wonders of modern technology mean that I am still able to produce the weekly newsletter,
Tomorrow is the end of the season for the 1st XV with an away game to Dumfries Saints. It is has been a tough season for them as injuries and unavailability have taken their toll and exposing our lack of depth in the Senior section. Those who have taken the field have tried their best and this experience will be of great benefit to the younger members of the squad. Any points tomorrow could ease the anxiety of potential relegation.
The 2nd XV are away to Lenzie and both games have a 3.00pm kick off.
When I was at Biggar last weekend I managed to view the last 15 minutes of the under 18 side beating a strong Biggar side 29-22 to get to the final of the Shield. This was a fantastic victory away from home and sets up a final at West Lodge on the 27th April against Ayr/Wellington. More details will follow nearer the time. Well done to all those involved.
The under 16 side are through to the Plate Final versus Ardrossan on the 28th April and the under 15 side have to wait till 5th May to play their Shield final against either Birkmyre or Waysiders/Drumpellier. Well done to both teams.
