Club News and what’s on this weekend - April 26/27th
On Friday evening (Fri 18th) the Girls U-15 team travelled to Glasgow and Scotstoun to take part in the guard of honour prior to the Glasgow/Ulster match in the RaboProdirect match.
Having fulfilled a similar role the previous week at Edinburgh but having returned slightly disappointed by their reception, the Girls were delighted at the response in Glasgow on Friday when they played a match at half time and after the game met many of the Glasgow players. A great honour! Did you spot them on the BBC Alba programme?
The girls are also hosting a dominoes fund-raiser in the Cross Keys on Saturday for their tour to Stornoway. Entries are almost all complete but speak to Charlotte Court for details.
In what is another fantastic opportunity the players of the P6/7 mini section will be in attendance at Scotstoun on Saturday 26th when they form the guard of honour prior to the Glasgow/Edinburgh 1872 clash.
Paula Yardley is keen to know the names of all those who are able to attend so if you haven’t replied please do so asap so that arrangements can be finalised.
Twenty years ago almost to the day Biggar’s then U-18 side managed a historic National Cup final win when they defeated Kelso Harlequins in a match played at Boroughmuir’s ground in Edinburgh. That win will be celebrated on Saturday when almost all the winning side will gather at Hartree Mill for a 20th anniversary lunch. With players parents and now their own children in attendance it’s expected to be a fun affair, rekindling many memories from the 1990’s. There may still be some room left so if you haven’t managed to secure your place please speak to Stuart Harrison asap.
