Despite many of Deesides's U15's players who attend Banchory Academy being away on activities week with the school Deeside U15's still managed to take a strong squad of nine players to the U15 Buckie 7's including four who are U14.
The Buckie 7's is a charity event and the U15 competition in the morning preceded a seniors tournament in the afternoon. In addition to Deeside U15's, sides from Buckie, Banff, Ellon Moray, Shire and an invitational Pigbarians side which was hand picked from Edinburgh and Glasgow clubs took part.
Deeside started slowly and looked they had not quite shaken off the long bus trip in their opening game which they drew with Moray-A 12 points all. However, they won the rest of their pool matches convincingly scoring over 50 points in one game alone, which for a game lasting only 10 minutes is no mean feat.
This was enough to take them into a final against Ellon and although some excellent tries were scored by Rennie and by Reid, Ellon scored more and Deeside finished as runners up. Deeside: Hendry, McCance, Gomez, Hillier, Earle-Wright, Rennie, Reid, Gordon, Wood.
