Gytes Gossip

Last Saturday  Glenrath Farm Eggs sponsored Peebles made the short journey to Netherdale to face high-flying Gala in an RBS Regional Cup Qualifier and Booker Wholesale Border League match. The Gytes men returned empty handed as Gala ran out winners by 41-3 – Greg Raeburn bagging Peebles’ points. 

The seconds – supported by FIRST XV and rugbystuff.com – hosted Gala A at Hay Lodge Park in an RBS Reserve League East 1 game – a strong Gala side ran out winners by 58-13.

The Colts – supported by BARC – are travelled down to the Glebe for an away fixture against Jed Thistle in the Border Semi-Junior league – returning victorious after a 29-3 win.

Tomorrow there is no fixture for the first XV allowing time for the coaches to take stock and for some of the niggling injuries to heal.

The seconds – supported by FIRST XV and rugbystuff.com – are at home for the second week in a row when they face Lasswade in RBS Reserve league East 1 – kick-off 2:00pm.

The Colts – supported by BARC - have a home fixture with Tynedale Colts in the Border Semi-Junior League.

 Last Friday a very successful quiz night was held in the clubrooms ably hosted by quizmaster and question-setter Davy Cornwall. In a packed hall 24 teams were put through some interesting mental gymnastics with the final winners turning out to be ‘Karen’s Team’. Over £1250 was raised for the Alex Noble Appeal from the raffle and auction held after the Jed game, from the quiz night and from donations handed in. A big thanks from Chris Noble to all involved. Donations can also be made via www.bmycharity.com/AlexNobleAppeal
