During the lockdown of 2020, we featured a number of old matches, as part of our Blast from the Past. Here they are:

Wee Reds Mini Tournament

Congratulations to all the players who turned out on Sunday at the Wee Reds Mini Tournament.  It was great to see so many youngsters and it looked as though everyone was having a ball!  We were delighted to welcome teams from Biggar, Forrester, Falkirk, Gala and Watsonians to Mains Park.

Another Blast from the Past!

This week we delve deeper into history, rolling the clock back to March 2012 and a local derby league match which pitted the Reds against Livingston at Mains Park.

Reds Triumph in Fiesty Local Derby

Linlithgow  29 – 20  Livingston

Saturday 03 March 2012

Tries from Charlie Gillanders, Graeme McCallum (above) and a brace from Matthew Archer gave the Reds a bonus point victory, but having led 29-10 in the second half, they were made to sweat as Livi clawed back 10 points and threatened more.

Blast from the Past!

3 Matches from 5 Years Ago

Posted 02 April 2020

With no rugby to report on because of the current lockdown, we’ve dug into the Club records to bring you 3 match reports from 5 years ago. Unfortunately, Graham Black was only on hand for two of these matches, with the Reds playing in their blue change strips on both occasions. We’ve also added in a Wee Reds’ P4 match report from 5 years ago!

Hat-Trick for Stand-in Captain

14 February 2015

Linlithgow  34 – 10  Duns

Captain for the day Les Richardson claimed a hat-trick, but the outstanding score came from scrum-half Dougie Thomson, whose score is shown below in a significantly speeded-up format!
