Glens are left dejected


GLENROTHES WERE thwarted in their bid for a place at the national finals day when they succumbed 28-13 against St Boswells in the RBS Bowl semi final.

Glens went into the clash against St Boswells with high hopes of booking a place at Broadwood Stadium later this month.

Tries by Cammy Goodall and Willie Maxwell, plus a penalty from Shaun Gray, left the Fifers 17-13 adrift at half time, and still very much in contention. However, the visitors raised the pace in the second half to emerge as comfortabl­e winners, leaving the Fifers to focus on league duties.

Meanwhile there was a disappoint­ing end to the RBS Caledonia Division 1 campaign for Strathmore, when the Inchmacobl­e men went down 13-11 at home to a MackieA cademy side that was desperate for a win to move out of the bottom two in the league.

Harris A cademy eased to a 57-7 win in their final league fixture of the campaign againstA lloa.

The result has tightened the Dundee side’s grip on second spot, extending the advantage over third-placed Glenrothes to 10 points, although the Fifers still have three matches to play.

Crieff and Strathearn missed out on the chance to clinch third place in Division 3 (Midlands), losing 41-5 away to Kirkcaldy.
