Young Reds Top the Schools’ Purple Conference


Click on image to enlarge

Congratulations to all the Linlithgow Academy school teams! The Young Reds have won this season’s Schools’ Purple Conference by one point from Lasswade High School. The scoring is worked out across the results of all 5 age grade teams – S1, S2, S3 , U16 and U18. Both the S2s and the U18s finished unbeaten with 6 wins, with the other age group teams chipping in with a very credible additional 10 wins between them.


Last League Match –
Reds Squeeze Out Victory

Linlithgow  18 – 17  Dunbar

Despite creating a number of guilt-edged chances to put Dunbar away, the Reds managed to keep this game close! However, it was great to see the Reds return to winning ways.

The new schedule for winter training is now available – please follow this link to view.


Reds Fixtures

The scheduling computer must have developed a glitch, as 6 of our 9 home matches were scheduled in the first half of the season. To compound this, Duns requested a switch of home and away fixtures, which gives us 7 home matches in the first 9 games. In the Shield, our first fixture is away to either Broughton or Dalkeith.
