Colts Awards Evening

Over 70 players, parents and guests attended the club for a great awards night, hosted for the last time by the retiring coaching team of Yogi, Muz and Gav.

As always the evening was one of celebrating the achievements of the players and teamwork the squad had worked so hard for over the last 10 months,

After a great meal the coaches all spoke in what can only be described as their own inimitable style. The fun and totally politically incorrect awards were handed out first going to Guy Kelly, Aaron & Marcus Dobie and Craig Frame, culminating with Alex Toal getting an award for his commitment to training and his progress over the past season.

The evening then progressed to the more formal awards which went to Angus Kerr for his outstanding commitment over the last season, Lewis Stewart was awarded the trophy for Best New Colt. The players Player of the Year was awarded to Aaron Dobie and the Yogi Barr trophy for the Coaches Player of the year was this year awarded to Rory McGinn.

The evening ended with gifts given to the coaches, those that have assisted the team over the year and rounded off a great evening with the coaching team able to relax as they all take a sabbatical before no doubt being asked to pass on some of their coaching skills to others at the club as they have carried out such a great job with so many youngsters over the past 15 years, The club are grateful for the hard work and commitment all 3 of tech coaching team and for what they have achieved with so many different youngsters,

Well done to all the award winners and also Muz, Gav and Yogi.


2nd XV presented with Winners Trophy

A few of Dougie Flemmings players were on hand today alongside him to receive their winners trophy as East Reseve League 1 champions having gone through their season only losing once.

Well done to all the squad


Biggar RFC AGM and the future

Season 2016718

The Club is currently run by a General Committee comprised of Office Bearers and various Convenors who take responsibility for different sections within the club - please see below a list of those who were in post in season 2016/17.

As you will probably know, we are currently seeking Charitable status for the Club which will result in a good deal of restructuring with regard to the formation of a Limited Company and a Board of Trustees. We had to appoint Directors and Trustees before we could make our application to OSCAR.

The Club committee will still exist however, although it is also open to some re-structuring, this primarily due to the ever-increasing size of the club and the amount of time required to run and manage its business as efficiently as possible.

Our AGM is the point within the year when Office Bearers and Committee are elected. The majority of those currently in post are willing to stand again in their current role or in another role or as co-opted members of the committee (as indicated). All current committee members will be subject to re-election at the AGM while any interested parties may themselves stand for election at the AGM providing they have a proposer and seconder on the night (election may be subject to a vote with the stipulation being that anyone wishing to stand for committee and their proposer and seconder must all be full Club members).

The current committee is keen to recruit new faces to join them in running the club and making things work, whether that be as a specific convenor with an identified role or as co-opted members to 'shadow' current convenors.

Anyone requiring further information should contact a member of the committee who will be able to provide an insight into what is involved.

 

President Al Stewart (standing down as President after a 2 year term; automatically co-opted for one year as ex-President)
Vice-President Peter McDonald (Proposed/Seconded as President for 2017/18)

Club Secretary David Adams
Treasurer Doug Low (standing down as Treasurer but available for Co-opted role)

Rugby has SO much to offer.         Biggar RFC has so much to offer.


National selection honours

Congratulations to Fraser Brown who was selected to start on Saturday for Scotland against Ireland. Sadly his involvement lasted but 25 minutes after he clashed heads and although he was able to return after treatment he was replaced. Early indications are that the injury will not rule him out of selection for this weekend’s match against France.

At National U18 level Guy Kelly and Andrew Nimmo both took part in a training match on Sunday between the members of the Scotland U18 squad. Both props acquitted themselves well and will now continue to train prior to the 6Nations Championship in March. Meanwhile Andrew Jardine who has had a frustrating season due to injury will continue his latest return to action after rib injury. He will keep his fingers crossed that he will be considered for the March event.
