Saturday saw the Peebles Squad travel to Riverside park Jedburgh for the final round of the BSPC sponsored Kings of the Sevens. Having beaten Hamilton in a very close first round tie Peebles were beaten by eventual winners Melrose in the quarters.
The seconds seven also had their traditional end of season down at the Walkerburn sevens. Peebles drew Selkirk in the first round and went out at that stage.
Yesterday the players took off on their Irish tour after some hard work fundraising through the season.
Next Friday the club dinner will be held in the Eastgate clubrooms. Confirmed speakers are Jimmy Moffat – Tweeddale Rovers, Drew Moore – Peebles RFC, Archie Ferguson – SRU Council Member and Scott Tomlinson – Selkirk RFC. Contact Allan Beveridge for tickets. Members should also note that, in order to accommodate the guests and speakers upon arrival, the small lounge bar will be closed until 8:00pm.
Preparations are now under way for the club AGM which will be held on Friday 1st July in the Eastgate clubrooms – all members are asked to make the effort to attend.
Later this summer Peebles RFC DO George Blair will be running a summer camp in conjunction with Peebles High School Rugby – look out for details in Gytes Gossip.
