Four Tries Not Enough for Reds

North Berwick 38 – 26 Linlithgow

Two tries from Rab Cairns, one from Mark Green and a penalty try were not enough to get the Reds a result at North Berwick, as the home team ran in six to claim their 10th league win from 11 matches.

Another Bonus Point Win for 2s

Stewarts Melville 22 – 39 Linlithgow

The Reds picked up another fine away bonus point win in Edinburgh, to make it 11 wins from 11 with 54 points, as they sit atop BT Reserve League East 2. There were braces for Cammy Walker and Stu Young (pictured above) and tries for Ross Oliver and Sam Buckley as the young Reds scored 6 tries in total.

Reports from 10/11 November

10 out of 10 for 2s

Linlithgow 2s  33 – 8 Dunfermline 2s

The Reds 2s made it 10 wins from 10 matches on Saturday with a superb win in this top-of-the-table clash. This was an all-round performance – a step up from the previous week – against strong opposition. Cammy Walker was again on the mark with a hat-trick and young Kieran Cochrane claimed the other try as the 2s secured a bonus point win.

Red Kites at Night
– Dougie’s Delight!

Linlithgow 3s (Red Kites)  72
Hyndland  26

Club coach Dougie Thomson was delighted in the response for players looking for an occasional game and it was great to see so many former and current Reds turn out for this match. Muzz now lives in Glasgow and he brought his new club, Hyndland, for this bounce match which was played under the lights on Lower mains park on Friday night.

Youth 6 Nations’ Tickets

The Club has received an allocation of youth tickets for Scotland’s two home 6 Nations’ matches against France (Sunday 11 February) and England (Saturday 24 February). For both matches we will receive 16 child tickets and 6 accompanying adult tickets. As with last season, the Club will organise a bus to both matches and the cost for the day will be £30 per person. Please download and complete the attached form and send to president@lrfc.club by 30 November if you are interested in attending. Priority will be given to those who have already indicated interest, the rest will be on a first come basis.


Adult Tickets Available
for Scotland v France

Last chance for anyone who wants tickets for Scotland v France at BT Murrayfield on Sunday 11 February 2018. Paul Birrell still has a number of tickets available @ £45, £65 and £85. Please contact him by 29 November if you would like any of these tickets, otherwise they will be returned to the SRU who will then put them on sale to the public. As the club gets a commission on these tickets it would be good to sell as many as possible to Club members.
