St Boswells RFC are pictured in celebratory mood after winning BT East League 1 last Saturday, defeating Forresters RFC 58-0.

St Boswells – the Saints – have now won 51 continuous league matches spanning three seasons, winning BT East Leagues 2 and 3. The Saints now go marching on to National League 3.

They were previously on a run of 59 matches, unbeaten in all competitions, but the winning run came to an end in the BT Shield semi- final against Carrick RFC, who went on to win the Shield Final by defeating Highland RFC.

St Boswells and their supporters acknowledged the success on the club’s Facebook page, with the club hoping to make it four promotions out of four next season, and fans’ comments such as ‘Well done lads, a massive achievement.’
