Reds Match Reports
Grangemouth 1s 26 – 38 Linlithgow 1s
Grangemouth 2s 0 – 38 Linlithgow 2s
The Reds travelled through to Grangemouth to play two pre-season matches against Grangemouth 1s and 2s. Both games were competitive, with the Reds 1s trailing with less than 10 minutes ago, before tries from Ross Martin (pushover scrum) and Ross Plenderleith sealed a 38-26 win. Ross Plenderleith claimed a hat-trick in the game, but his 2nd XV colleague Cammy Walker went one better, claiming 4 tries in a 38-0 win, before a late cameo (or should it be “cammy-o”!) off the bench for the 1s, when he nearly scored after a run, kick and chase from his own half.

Reds Kick Off New Season
The Reds travelled through to Lenzie on Saturday for their first match of the new season and first since March 2020. Although a pre-season game, in which both sides fielded a large number players, this turned out to be a thoroughly entertaining and competitive match, with the Reds running out 24-21 winners thanks to a late try by Ruaridh Stewart.
It was great to play again against Lenzie and we received an excellent welcome at Viewfield. We wish them all the best for their season and look forward to welcoming them to Mains Park in the not-too-distant future.
Young Reds S1s Kick Off Season
The Young Reds S1s got the new season started for the Club on Saturday 7th August with an away match at North Berwick against their age grade counterparts.
