Great wins for 1st XV and Colts

Biggar 1st XV kept the local crowd on tenterhooks to conjour up a win with an amazing drop goal just 1 minute from the end of a typical close derby match.

  

Biggar didn't play too well in the first half an couldn't find a way through an impressive Peebles defence, Peebles led at half time by 10-3 but turned things around in the second half with a try from Douglas Notman to level the score at 10-10. Despite Biggar spending 90% of the second half attacking, Peebles put up a strong defence and everyone assumed the match would end a draw, which most people thought a fair result, however no one had consulted Andy King who had decided a win was on the card but from the most unlikely of options. A drop goal attempt from some 35m out was met with incredulity and lots of puzzled looks that soon turned to elation as the ball slotted neatly between the posts.

A great win and smiles all round to send the majority of the crowd home in good spirits.

The Colts had an equally dramatic win with the final kick of the match when Gregor Stewarts conversion struck the post and bounced off the crossbar to secure a well deserved win

 


Biggar among first clubs to benefit from SRU FastTrack Funding

Scottish Rugby has today revealed the first 39 clubs, from across Scotland, which will benefit from the new £1.6 million Club Sustainability Fund, announced back in November.

The successful clubs, from throughout the country – including Aderdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Inverness as well as from the Borders and Dumfries and Galloway– will receive up to £2,000 from the FastTrack strand, for club maintenance and improvement projects.

These range from shower refurbishments at Allan Glens, to new roofing at Alloa and Gala YM and clubhouse improvements at Mackie Academy and Madras’ clubhouses, amongst others.

Scottish Rugby’s Head of Club Services, Nick Rennie, said: “We were inundated with applications for the FastTrack strand of our new Club Sustainability Fund.

“Today we reveal the first round of funding, which totals more than £72,000.


It’s great to see that clubs from all over Scotland are looking to improve their facilities and make them a better place to train, play and socialise.”

The FastTrack strand replaces Scottish Rugby's small facilities fund and allows clubs to apply for 50% of maintenance and improvement projects up to £2,000.
