Langholm RFC ring the changes at poorly attended AGM

At a poorly attended Langholm Rugby Club AGM, in the Eskdale Hotel, the majority of positions were filled, but the captain and vice-captain have still to be finalised.

Garry Brannan has taken over as head coach and Michael Bell remains in his second term as president with Kenneth Pool chairman.

Jason Ratcliffe is vice-president and match and fixture secretary. Last seasons coach Ally Little, who recently married Jason, is now director of rugby, with Jake Little deciding to step back for a while. He was thanked for his services as was long term stalwarts David Reid and Eric Beattie who have stepped down from the committee, along with Les Murray. David Reid indicated he will continue to lay the pitch.

Catriona Bell remains secretary as does Michelle Grieve as treasurer, with John Ritchie and Kenneth Donaldson the assistant treasurers. Iain Park will remain for another three years as development officer for the area.

The Colts will get back into action after having to pull out last season through lack of players, and Brian Hislop and Kenny Little will be the coaches, with the possibility of Craig Hislop joining them.

The club showed a small profit for the season.
