Mini Tournamant - results

Sunday dawned and with it Biggar’s Annual Mini tournament. With some 300+ players and attendant parents and supporters this is always a very busy day.

Very luckily the weather forecast which had all week suggested heavy rain for Sunday was not quite correct, the bulk of the games having finished just prior to the one and only downpour. This didn’t stop the event from being a great success and with some excellent rugby on show to boot.

 

The day is huge in all sorts of ways and the club owes a massive thank you to all those who helped in any way (too many to name individually, but all crucial to the success of today’s event).

Thanks then first and foremost to the players who played with spirit and endeavour all day long.

But also to....

Pam Tennant and her large, very welcome organising team and kitchen helpers/Hugh and Kev for lining the pitches/all those who helped collect cash and park cars/those who manned the tombola and tuck shop/GY on the bar/Nic Humphries band of referees (many of whom were taking their first steps into the officials world)/visiting coaches and teams/all other visitors/score-keeper Eric Shearer/D. M. Clarkson (Borderline Garage) for car-parking space... and of course to Mini Convenor Laura Watson who was in overall charge.

Special thank you also to our guests, Glasgow Warriors players Niko Matawalu and Brandon Thomson Special who both thoroughly enjoyed their day and making the most of their time posing happily for pictures and chatting with the mini players (and coaches!).

Also thanks to Aileen Campbell (Scottish Government Minister for Public Health and Sport and our Clydesdale MSP) and Alex Allison (our local councillor for Clydesdale East).
