Good Start


Day one of our new season was as seems to be the norm these days an absolute roller coaster. At times a very stuffy Accies side pushed us very close and definitely felt they deserved something from the game. However being honest it was quite often ourselves who made life difficult. It's good to start with a win and again score some good tries however  the aim will be to play with a bit more consistency and to improve certain aspects of our game. I am convinced this season will be really tight with every club being capable of winning any game. I think that’s obvious from the results in round one.

The very young Storm side lost to a more powerful Accies side. Leading at half time they just failed to keep their momentum and it will be a lesson in how strong this league will be. It's going to be a big test for us and one the lads will hopefully enjoy.

The Wasps despite having a number missing on a School trip scored 50 pts against Gala Wanderers which was a bit of a surprise and a good start to their campaign.

For me perhaps the highlight of the weekend was taking Guinness (my dog not a pint) for a walk  -Annay Road - kids everywhere, the Glebe even more, The Gibson Park another 40 and the Triangle, a sea of wee ones. There must have been close to 200 kids if indeed not more surrounding the town - quite simply sensational and testament to an incredible job being done by all those involved with the minis - congratulations to every one of you.
