Maroons play fair

FOR the second year running the Gala Mini Maroons P7 squad were awarded the Fair Play award in their age group.

It was run in conjunction with the Edinburgh Rugby Festival held at Murrayfield last weekend. All teams were awarded points on teamwork, sportsmanship and good conduct. And when all the scores were added up, Gala once again came out on top.

Ian Miller, the club’s development officer, was delighted with the result.

“It’s good that Gala has come out on top, but I must say that the overall day has been great fun and all the children have had a brilliant time,” he told TheSouthern.

“It is a great achievement and the players are a credit to their coaches, parents and schools.”

Unknown to the coaches and parents, they were also marked on the same criteria.

Miller added: “They also are a credit to the Mini Maroons and the town. A great team effort by all.”
