Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Reader Travel -

Waysiders/Drumpel­lier Wolves cel­e­brated host­ing their first-ever girls’ rugby fes­ti­val at the week­end.

Five teams – more than 60 girls – took part in the rugby bo­nanza.

A tremen­dous 28 tries were scored through­out the week­end.

East Kil­bride, Falkirk and Strathaven all took part, as well as Is­lay who made a three-day round trip to par­tic­i­pate.

Is­lay brought a com­mem­o­ra­tive teddy bear for the Wolves to thank them for the in­vi­ta­tion to the tour­na­ment.

The hosts, who are W/Ds Un­der-15s side, won one, drew an­other and were beaten twice.

Coach Colin Steele said: “We are so proud of all the girls who played to­day.

“The com­pe­ti­tion was ex­tremely high, but so was the sports­man­ship shown.”
