What’s happening at Biggar RFC

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MEMBERS AND

FRIENDS OF BIGGAR RUGBY CLUB

As we move into 2020 and the next decade, we are proposing a big change at our club in the shape of a large extension of our current clubhouse.

We have had initial plans for a 2 storey clubhouse extension drawn up, as the current clubhouse is almost 30 years old when we had 2 teams, and we now have 18.

To make this an achievable goal and to ensure we are able to provide the best facilities for our growing number of teams and fans, we need to work together to raise as much money as possible towards our £1,200,000 target.

The following events will be the start of the fundraising campaign for what will be the largest investment that the rugby club has undertaken. However, Biggar RFC believes this will be a great investment for the future of not only the club but the local community as well.

On Friday 17th January we are bringing “Trail West” to the Municipal all. Tickets are only £15, available from myself, or online through Eventbrite

On Friday 31st of January we are holding our annual Burns Supper and Ceilidh in the Municipal Hall. Cost is £25 names to myself to be paid on the night.

Hopefully, on Friday 21st February we will be holding our Over 35’s Dinner at the club, after our match with Peebles Over 35s (kick off 6.30)

We understand that not everyone can attended every event that the rugby club hosts but we always appreciate attendance and welcome any further ideas as to how we can reach the goal and get the process underway

If you need any more information on or want to order tickets please contact me on 07774 678617 or gy1680@aol.com

Player of the Decade: Davy Reive tops the poll!

Davy way back in season 2009/10 – the start of the decade!

Many congratulations to the legend that is Davy Reive who topped the fans Instagram poll and has been elected as Biggar RFC’s Player of the Decade (2010-2019).

The 17 nominations for the accolade were Davy, Euan Sanderson, Craig Parker, Andrew Howatson, Kevin Robison, Jamie Orr, Aird Jardine, Conor Lavery, Abbie Baillie, Craig McDonald, Douglas Notman, Lewis McLachlan, Charlie Court, Andrew Peacock, Donald Voas, Ewan Stewart and Alan Warnock.

There were over 700 votes cast with our man Davy topping the poll convincingly! As someone who has played throughout the decade, been a first choice in the 1st XV every year, served as captain and won just about every award it is possible to win, as well as having retired on at least 2 occasions only to make his usual comeback, this is a very well deserved honour.

Keep on rocking Davy!
