Youth teams thrive in Cum­ber­nauld

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reader Travel -

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.
