Rugby de­but is praised

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Advertiser @ View -

Air­drie Academy’s S1 rugby squad im­pressed at the 2002 fes­ti­val Scrum-thing spe­cial was tak­ing place at Air­drie Academy in 2002 as the school’s first-year rugby team made a fab­u­lous first im­pres­sion.

They tack­led the com­pe­ti­tion at the Mon­k­lands rugby fes­ti­val head-on with an im­pres­sive de­but dis­play.

The pupils, fea­tured in this im­age from our edi­tion of Novem­ber 6, 2002, did them­selves proud at the event – held at Rose­hall High in Coat­bridge – with the help of their hard-work­ing coaches, Jennifer Miller and Paul Massey.

Fourth-year stu­dent Jennifer said af­ter­wards that the lads had what it took to go for glory next time around.

She added:“Con­sid­er­ing it was the first time the boys had played to­gether, they did very well.”
