Older opposition can’t halt P4 charge
Cambuslang Rugby Club’s mini sections travelled to sunny Kilmarnock to take part in the Ayrshire annual tournament.
There was some fantastic rugby played in the blistering heat under the watchful eye of Clyde, the Glasgow Warriors’mascot on June 5.
The P3s had three fast games, winning one and coming close in the other two. The six boys who turned up played some great rugby with Ardrossan and Kilmarnock boosting their numbers. There was brilliant passing running from Liam O’Neill, Magnus Boan and Brodie Templeton.
The P4/5 team, made of eight P4s and two P5s, was entered into the P5 tournament. The older opponents didn’t deter Cambus, who took the tournament by storm and ran out worthy winners.
Colin Campbell, who helps the Cambus coaches, said:“There is a real bunch of talent emerging in this group of players. The whole team gelled really well together and played some sparkling rugby.”
Ben MacDougall and Connor Ferry made some good runs and were well supported by Fionnlagh McGhee, Murray Templeton and Jamie Kennedy. Alexander Fountain,
Duncan Campbell and Henry McConnell put in some good tackles and supported well at the breakdown as did Sam McCarthy and Antonio Yardley.
Colin added:“This group of P4s are going to be feared by other teams.”
The P6/7s teamed up with Cumbernauld. Two close games were contested with Cambus winning 7-6 against Kilmarnock and losing 8-5 to Ardrossan.
Finn McGill was immense in attack, carrying the ball forward again and again. Daniel Senior showed he was a great team player making numerous tackles and securing the ball for his team at the breakdown. Kerr McLaughlin put in a typically fearless performance and was the top try scorer in the day.
Charlotte Boan made her return from injury and scored the first try of the day as part of a strong attacking performance.
The team finished in second place after a great team performance.
