Gytes Gossip

Last Saturday Glenrath Farm Eggs sponsored Peebles travelled through to Sunnyside to play Falkirk in RBS Premier C but were well beaten by 26 – 10.losing ground on the teams above them in the table and remaining in bottom spot in the table 10 points adrift of that 4th spot – now with only 3 games left albeit all at home.

The seconds – supported by FIRST XV and – were due to be at home against Selkirk in the Border cup but the game was called off.
The Colts – supported by BARC – were at home playing Melrose Wasps in the RBS National Youth Under 18 Bowl and won a tight and tense encounter by 8 – 0 to progress to the semi-final stage where they have a home draw against Greenock Wanderers – the match to be played on either 21st or 22nd April.
 Tomorrow Glenrath Farm Eggs sponsored Peebles have a home game against Whitecraigs in RBS Premier C at the Gytes – kick-off is at 3:00pm.
