Honours for rugby stars
Cambuslang are delighted as junior section rises once again
There was a large turnout at Cambuslang Rugby Club last week as the club handed out its junior prizes.
The 2014/15 season has seen a real turnaround in the fortunes of the club’s junior section, as it has been reinvigorated by a team of new volunteers who have taken on the job with enthusiasm.
There has been such a big turnaround in the space of 12 months, when last May the club had no real junior section to speak of, and no awards were presented.
To make up for it, two years worth of prizes were handed out at the clubhouse. The prizes were given to: Douglas Niven - Most Improved Player of the Season 2014/15.
Jamie Ramsay - Most Improved Player of the Season 2013/14.
Blair Sutherland - Diva Season.
Oliver Dalby - Players Player of the Season 2013/14.
Gregg Oehme - Coaches Player of the Season 2013/14.
Kieran Grainger - Players Player of the Season 2014/15.
Reece Allison - Coaches Player of the Season 2014/15.
The club were delighted to be joined by two special guests, who were Gregor Jones and Fraser Stott. Gregor knows the junior section well having come through it, and is now captain of the club’s first XV, and Fraser also played with Cambus before going on to have a distinguished career with West of Scotland, as well as playing for the Barbarians. He is now rugby development officer South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture.
A spokesman said: “The function attended by 61 people, including coaches and parents - both mums and dads.
“The P7s who are moving up to midi level (S1-S4) were presented with ties and boot bags.
“It was a fantastic event to look back over, and celebrate the season for the junior section.”
The senior dinner takes place this Friday, May 15.
