OBAN Lorne RFC hosted Glasgow Warriors when they delivered their Cala Homes Young Warriors Summer Camp at Glencruitten last Friday.
Around 30 players from West Highland Clubs including Oban Lorne, Mid Argyll, Etive Vikings, Isle of Mull and Highland took part in a great day of fun skill sessions and small-sided games led by staff from the Glasgow Warriors community team.
Also in attendance at the Camp was Glasgow Warrior and Scotland International Prop Zander Fagerson who took part in the coaching sessions as well as posing for photographs and providing autographs for his young fans.
Zander commented: ‘Oban Lorne RFC were very proud to host this event for the second time in two years, continuing the fantastic relationship that Glasgow Warriors provide with local clubs across the West of Scotland and beyond.
‘It’s great to see so many children turn up, and we have some girls here which is fantastic.
‘All the children are really enthusiastic and they are willing to learn.
‘There’s some great talent and it is good to be here. I have been to Oban a few times – I love it up here.’
Glasgow Warriors will be starting their new season in September. For more information on Warriors fixtures and events visit their website at www. glasgowwarriors.org
