Victory for young Souters

Tynedale Colts5

Selkirk Youth Club started their season with a win against Tynedale Colts last Saturday.

With a number of younger players being introduced, coaches were a bit apprehensive as to how the first game of the season would go.

Pre-season training had been going well, but player numbers had been a concern. In the end 19 youngsters were ready for the opening match, where quality over quantity was definitely the order of the day.

Try scorers for the Youth Club were: Alan Rutter (2), Gregor Grahame (2), Hamish Robertson (2), Strath MacKenzie, Scott Francis, Finlay Amos. Rutter notched eight conversions.
