What a Weekend!
Saturday 01 and Sunday 02 October 2016
Linlithgow Rugby had a great weekend with big wins across the board at all age levels.
On Saturday morning, all the Linlithgow Academy school teams from S1 to U18 enjoyed wins against Musselburgh Grammar School, with the U18s winning 48-13 against their East Lothian counterparts.
In the afternoon, both senior sides were at home and the Reds had a great 26-8 victory over North Berwick in BT East 1, while the 2s had a great come-from-behind victory over a strong RHC 2s side, shading it by 33-31.
Then on a glorious sunny Sunday, the Linlithgow Wee Reds hosted their annual Mini Tournament, sponsored by Springfords. With over 300 youngsters playing in 5 age groups and many parents in attendance, Mains Park was a hive of activity. Former Linlithgow Academy u15 captain Lewis Wynne – now a Glasgow Warriors regular and a Scotland u20 cap – was on hand to present the medals. A great time was had by all and, to cap the weekend, The Wee Reds P3s, P5s and P7s all won their age groups against strong opposition from the Borders, Edinburgh and the West.
