Gala Academy won the Scottish Schools rugby cup final, beating Dunblane High School at Meggetland on March 19, 1985. The final score was 21-9, with 13 of Gala’s points being scored by captain Dunc Cameron, shown in the middle of the picture on his teammates’ shoulders.
A good effort, also, from the two-man teams from Selkirk pubs, who took part in a pub crawl on January 13, 1979. It was all for a good cause, as the event raised money for those suffering from muscular distrophy. The crawl was organised by staff at the Queen’s Head pub.
