President's Message

Autumn is Just Arround the Corner...

23 Sep 2017

With the signs that Autumn is just around the corner we find ourselves in prime position having taken all 5 points at Millbrae last Saturday, as did the Storm, and adding icing to the Greenyards cake the Wasps between them (U16 & U18) scored 125 points without reply against Duns. All in all a weekend to celebrate and here's hoping for continued success. Today we welcome Glasgow Hawks President Kenny Hamilton, his committee and supporters to the Greenyards for what should be a cracker of a game with both sides committed to playing an open attractive brand of rugby. Hawks find themselves out on the street having suffered from the appearance of a sinkhole at Old Anniesland and have been temporarily based at Scotstoun, the home of Glasgow Warriors, until the matter is resolved.

Today is our sponsors and advertisers day, a time to say thank you to all the businesses, organisations and individuals who support the club during the season. I cannot emphasise enough our appreciation of your support, without it this club at best would be hugely poorer, at worst would not be able to survive. 

The dinner at Prestonfield on Friday 10th November is taking shape however we are still looking for people and businesses to take tables. This is in aid of Doddie Weirs Trust and our community 1883 Legacy Project. If you can help with any aspect of this it would be very much appreciated. This can be in the form of attending, providing auction prizes etc contact myself or Trevor Jackson if you require any further information.

Continuing the social theme, the players held a very successful race night in the clubrooms. Next weekend will be the Ladies Lunch which is hugely successful and is already sold out. This will be followed by our 140th birthday bash on the 14th October and one for the diary, the player organised ceilidh on the 9th December.

But to more immediate matters, lets hope for an entertaining game this afternoon and the result in our favour.
