Langholm girls claim sevens title

Langholm girls under-15s maintained their 100 per cent unbeaten record last Saturday to be crowned overall National Sevens winners.

Their latest success was at Peffermill, in Edinburgh, and their National Sevens crown accompanies their 15-a-side Brewin Dolphin Cup they shared with Auchterarder.

Langholm defeated Hillhead/Jordanhill and Kyle, both by 30-5, Crieff 35-5, old rivals Auchterarder 25-5, and won 30-20 over Grange from Kilmarnock.

Coach Iain Park, development officer for Langholm RFC, said: “I am delighted that the girls had finished off the season on such a high.

“All the girls have improved during the season and they have played as a team with such commitment to both games and to training. They thoroughly deserve their success and have played some excellent rugby along the way.”

Langholm under-15 girls: S. Murray, H. Reid, C. Horsburgh, L. Meager, K. Jardine, R. Young, L. Thomson, N. Beattie, M. Paisley, C. Hope, A. Wyllie.
