Street rugby

OVER the past eight weeks, Gala Rugby has run a street rugby programme at the Victoria Park and Netherdale playing fields, where more than 20 youngsters have taken part in fun touch rugby sessions.

The programme is funded through G4S Events, the Cashback for Community scheme and Scottish Rugby, and gives youngsters the chance to be involved in a sporting activity.

Gala youth development officer Ian Millar said: “Everyone at Gala Rugby greatly appreciates the support and funding that is made available which enables us to be involved in these very worthwhile projects.

All of the children involved have had a great time and many continue to play at both the club and school.”
