Youth teams thrive in Cumbernauld
Following Cambuslang Rugby Club’s postponed match against Oban Lorne last weekend, focus turned to their youth teams on Sunday morning.
Their P1 to P3 team was able to field two teams as they travelled to a sunny Cumbernauld.
The first Cambus team delivered a fantastic performance by utilising the core skills which had been harnessed on the training pitch.
With lovely evasive running and the passing of the ball, it wasn’t long before the first try was scored by Brodie Templeton quickly followed by another from fast paced Magnus Boan.
Cumbernauld kept the game very close through wonderful quick play but the first game was concluded with a further Cambuslang try from Samuel Kelly.
Just as impressive was the second Cambuslang team.
From the kick off, Cambus went a try down quickly but the young stars picked themselves back up and used the ball well through fantastic team work which created the space for Oliver Herriot to bring the game back level. After a very close second half, further tries from Caine Connal and William Tochel meant Cambus won five trys to four.
The P4/ P5 team also had a fantastic outing. Fifteen Cambuslang boys performed very well against a well-coached Cumbernauld team.
Some notable firsts were achieved on Sunday with Antonio Yardley making a promising debut and Sam McCarthy scoring his first try in competition.
Great running, support play and tackling efforts were displayed by all of the boys with Ben MacDougall, Euan McGovern, Alexander Fountain, Conor Fer r y, Fionnlagh McGhee and Murray Templeton leading the way.
There was also standout performances for Cambus’ p6/7 team from Iain Cunningham, Finn McGill and Ker r McLaughlin.
