The Clubhouse is now open and will be operating to normal hours.
Owing to the severe weather the Clubhouse is closed.It will open when the weather relents.
Coaching/training is on this Sunday and will hopefully be outside, please rap your children up warm to fit the conditions. If it’s raining, we will be in doors and please bring trainers if this is the case.
We have possible games for the P3’s with Allan Glens and some GHA P3’s, I don’t think they will be bringing any P1’s – P2’s.
Registration is in the players bar at 11:15am (first left as you enter the club).
We will be on the pitches for 11:30am.
Any donations of cakes, drinks, crisps etc or just being able to help will be greatly appreciated.
See you all tomorrow,
The U18 West Cup fixture has been re-arranged for 12pm on Sat 24th February @whitecraigsrc.
Come along and support two local youth teams before the second biggest game of the day – Scotland v England..!
We are at home again on Sunday, welcoming Allan Glens to West Lodge as well as the P7 team from GHA. It is also possible that GHA will be able to bring some teams at other age groups but at the time of writing that is yet to be confirmed. It’s the usual meet time of 11.00am with an 11.30 k/o.
Last Saturday’s postponed game v Biggar is now being played this Friday, 23rd February @ 7.30pm.
Many thanks to Biggar for agreeing to this sensible switch of dates. Get down and support the boys!!
Training is on tomorrow night at 7pm on the pitches for an hour for all age groups.
Weekend arrangements are still being confirmed so I’ll be back in touch before the end of the week.
Unfortunately the pitches are unplayable so today’s fixture against Hillhead Jordanhill is cancelled
Sorry for the disappointment
Training is on today, I’m not 100% sure if we will be indoors or out, please prepare for both. You will need trainers for indoors, boots and layers for outdoors. I will check the conditions closer to the time.
Registration is in the players bar (first door on the left when entering the club) is at 11:15 am, we will start at 11:30am and finish around 12:30pm.
Any help is always greatly appreciated, feel free to join our coaching team, just make us aware you would like to help.
See you all soon,
Good Evening from a cold and wet West Lodge,
Rugby returns to West Lodge this weekend with a very full schedule of matches.
Firstly, on Saturday, the 1st XV play Biggar, the 2nd XV play Cumnock and the under 18s play Cartha in the West Regional Cup. The 1st and 2nd games ko at 3.00pm and the u18s at 2pm. A veritable feast of rugby so get down and support your Club.
Sunday is another full day with the Minis playing Hillhead/Jordanhill at 11.00am followed by the u15 and u16 sides playing near neighbours GHA in the West Regional Cup at 2 pm. West Lodge will be a busy clubhouse over the weekend.
We have been selected by Scottish Rugby to be a Tartan Touch Centre over the summer. This is an opportunity to introduce newcomers to rugby and also tempt back those who have played in the past. More information will follow once arrangements have been finalised.
The squash section have been back in action with the this week’s results: 1sts beat top of the table Giffnock 13-6, 2nds beat 3rd placed Scotstoun 12-6, 3rds beat top of div 4 Newlands 6 14-10 and the 4th lost to top of div 6 Scotstoun 3. great efforts by our squash teams.
I regret that John Middleton, one of our members who came from the Legion when it closed, passed away late last week. His funeral is next Wednesday 21st February.
I am also informed that Martin Morris passed away very suddenly just after New Year. Martin was a past Social Convenor who was very enthusiastic about the Club and tried very hard to vary and increase our Social events. Our thoughts and condolences go to all the members of both families.
The postponed match v GHK due to be played on the last day of the Six Nations is now going to be played on the Friday night 16th March at 7.45pm.
As ever, we are always looking for volunteers to assist our over burdened Committee members. This does not have to be a full on commitment but if you have a couple of hours per week to spare contact Percy or Jon Jewitt. The future of the Club depends on the members, the parents of the Junior section and current players to be involved and to make sure there will be a vibrant successful Club in the future.
I hope the weather relents and we can get some rugby in the this weekend.
