Notice of AGM

After the excitement of the last few weeks its the administrative side of the club that comes to the fore over the next couple of weeks.

Everyone has already received notice of the AGM but in case you have forgotten its on Wednesday 30th May at 7.30pm All of the items in blue bold text and underlined give links to the relevant documents

This is the first AGM of Biggar Rugby Football Club as a charity and so there is a bit of business in terms of the "old club" in approving last years minutes and a slight change in format and procedure under our new Articles of Association.

The trustees are all to be re-elected and we are to elect a new President & Vice President. John Bogle has been proposed as our new president and James Orr is being put forward as our new vice president. If elected both will take up roles as trustees. We have 4 other vacancies for trustees and if you would be interested in standing as either a trustee or as a committee member please speak to Nigel Pacey or Peter McDonald and we will provide you with the necessary information. Or you can download a nomination form here

Trustee Nominations for brief details of who is standing please click here

There are no proposals to change any of our Articles of Association as we still need to assess how our new form as a charity will work but will do a full review in advance of next years AGM

All of the existing Committee members are to be re-elected and again if you are interested in helping please look at the list of committee roles and let one of the above know of your willingness to help

Finally the membership secretary after discussion with the youth convenors and the Academy staff and manager has put forward a motion to increase the youth membership rates for P6 to U18 members, in exchange for involving all these players into an enlarged club wide Academy with the aim of improving the standards across all ages. The full details will be posted before the weekend, however if anyone wishes to put forward any other motions you have until Friday 25th May to submit any proposals and if you cannot make the AGM there is the option under our new arrangements to vote by proxy and again the form will be available later in the week to download

Transition 10’s


UIt was Transition 10's No 2on Friday with the gamesa taking place at Whitecraigs RFC.

The Biggar boys played 4 matches back to back.

 

First up was Hawks who were stern opposition, followed by East Kilbride, Hamilton and lastly Whitecraigs.

 

Over the both tournaments Biggar fielded a total of 21 players all under 21. 5 of these players had not played at Biggar since finishing with Colts.

 

The aim is to try and keep them involved in rugby. All the boys thoroughly enjoyed playing with each other especially as they are all of a similar age. The fun and camaraderie displayed was a major factor in their unbeaten run, only conceding 1 try over the 9 games in total.

 

Well done to the boys and to Yogi for organising the squad.
