Victorious Young Reds’ S2s with Jack’s boot

Youngsters Play, but no Seniors

The weather took its toll on Saturday as the Hawick 4G pitch was frozen and so the Reds’ league match against Hawick Linden was postponed. The 2s were also without a match as Walkerburn, who had offered to host a friendly match, were unable to raise a team.

However, the youngsters were able to get some rugby, with the Tiny Reds (pre-school) indoor on the 3G and the Young Reds (secondary school age) outdoor against St Leonard’s / Madras College (SLM) on Saturday morning and the Wee Reds (primary school age) outdoors at Mains Park against Stirling County on the Sunday.

3 out of 4 for Young Reds

On Saturday, the Young Reds took on St Leonard’s / Madras in the Mitsubishi Grandis Conference. There were wins for the S1s and S2s and the U18s claimed the points as their opponents called off on Saturday morning as they were short of players. The U15s played their match on Upper Mains Park and gave an excellent account, with the game much closer than the scoreline suggests.

Poor Defence Costs Reds

Brilliant Fireworks Night
at the Rugby Club

On the night of Saturday 02 November the Rugby Club was host to the Linlithgow Town Fireworks Display. The Club’s own volunteer igniters (trained by 21CC) once again put on a fabulous display with around 20 minutes of non-stop pyrotechnics. A big thanks to all the Rugby Club volunteers who make this community event such a success and, judging by social media comments, those who attended had a great time.

Thanks also to Dragonbreath Entertainments who enthralled the crowd in the run up to the fireworks display.

Big thanks also to our local Councillors who helped support the event and to all the local shops who helped sell tickets for the event, namely:

  • Preston Road Shop (Alexanders),
  • Braehead shop,
  • Shop at Linlithgow Bridge,
  • Linlithgow Rugby Club,
  • The Dolphin Café,
  • The Thread Counter,
  • Far from the Madding Crowd.
