Rugby Success

Congratulations to the Three Counties Combined Schools team who won the Under 18s Scottish Rugby Schools’ Bowl 45 – 34 in a hard fought match against Gordonstoun on Wednesday evening. The team, captained by Fergus Nicol, and comprising of pupils from Nairn Academy, The Gordon Schools Huntly, Speyside High, Milne’s High School had 6 players from Elgin Academy, including Fergus. Their dedication in getting themselves  to Nairn for joint training on Monday evenings for many weeks has paid off, even after the huge disappointment of being deprived of playing the Final in Murrayfield. Congratulations to Alex Miller, Rhys Jones, Marcus Huby, Gabe Beadle, Mathew Ness and Fergus Nicol, and congratulations and thanks  to Chris Lee Development Officer and Scott Macdonald, Coach, for their time and encouragement.
