Argyllshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

MINI rugby teams from across Ar­gyll and Lochaber gath­ered at Lochgilp­head’s Rope­work Park on Satur­day March 17. The fes­ti­val was the sec­ond Dal­ri­ada Mini Rugby Fes­ti­val in re­cent weeks, with teams meet­ing the pre­vi­ous week­end when Oban Lorne hosted.

Mid Ar­gyll wel­comed a good turnout of teams with Oban Lorne, Etive Vik­ings, Kin­tyre and High­land vis­i­tors Lochaber RFC all at­tend­ing, along with a few play­ers from Isle of Mull RFC.

A mild spring day and fan­tas­tic un­der­foot con­di­tions helped com­ple­ment some fan­tas­tic rugby from all of the play­ers on the day.

Mid Ar­gyll were fan­tas­tic hosts on the day, and thanks from all the teams were passed onto Dun­can (Brochan) Aitken and his team of coaches, as well as par­ents at the club who of­fered some great hos­pi­tal­ity.

The next Dal­ri­ada Fes­ti­val will be hosted by Camp­bel­town/Kin­tyre RFC on Satur­day April 21.
