Villagers Ready For The New Season

Uddingston Rugby Club brought their pre-season fixtures to a close at the weekend when they travelled south to Harrogate to face the local team in their last warm up match before the real action begins.

Having faced Cartha in a training game and defeated McLaren at Callander the Villagers are ready for the new season, and they challenges it will bring.

The action begins in earnest this Saturday, 27/08, when Birkmyre are the visitors to Bothwell Castle Policies in the first round of the RBS West Regional Bowl. Having faced each other at the same stage last season the Villagers will be looking for a repeat performance to take them through to the second round, where the winners of Isle of Arran and Moffat will be the opponents. Kick-off is 3pm.

The Villagers are looking to field a 2nd XV this season and are still looking for any players who want to get involved. If interested please contact Kevin Kidd on 07908 679304.

With the senior players away, the Club’s Under 18 squad got their pre-season schedule off to a great start with a comprehensive 57-12 victory away to Livingston. The Uddingston Colts start their league campaign on the 28th when they host Cumbernauld.
