Wee Reds Back in Action
After 15 Months

Almost 15 months to the day since the Wee Reds played their last games at Watsonian Rugby Club in Edinburgh, the Wee Reds finally got back into action with matches against Dunfermline.

With restrictions still in place, the friendly fixture was arranged with two age groups (P6 and P7) playing at Dunfermline and two (P4 and P5) at Mains Park. To help with space, the Wee Reds Micros moved their training session to the Academy pitch.

Rugby at Last!

It’s been 15 months since a rugby match was played at Mains Park – that was the annual twinning match against Plaisir Rugby Club from near Guyancourt in France in March 2020! It was worth waiting for as the Young Reds S3s (pictured above) and the visitors from Lasswade served up a cracking game of rugby, with the Young Reds running in 6 tries in a superb 40-12 victory.

The Young Reds S1s and S2s both played Lasswade on Saturday as well, coming back from Midlothian with two fine wins.

You can read all about these matches by following this link.

Don’t miss the “try of the season” (yes, I know there may only be a couple more games this season, but this one would be hard to beat!)
