Stewartry Men 1st XV defeat East Kilbride Mens 1st XV in a close fought battle on the main pitch at Murrayfield.
It was a fantastic day for the squad, club & community. It was an early start with the buses leaving Greenlaw at 6.30am sharp to make it to Murrayfield for the 10am KO however no ask was too big for our fantastic supporters. A total of 7 buses left Greenlaw on Saturday morning including over 100 youth players who all managed to attend free of charge thanks to generous sponsors, donators and fundraising.
Whether it was a win or loss, the day was bound to be one to remember, however the cherry on the top was the Men putting in a fantastic performance and taking the win 15-22 against a strong East Kilbride side who had brought along their own large army of black and yellow supporters.
