READY TO ROLL! Ryan Nixon prepares to write his first report for the Selkirk Rugby Club web site. [Photo: JOHN SMAIL]
SELKIRK supporters will have noticed that the selkirkrfc.com web site has not been updated for several weeks. This is because Selkirk High School student Ryan Nixon has kindly agreed to take over the role of compiling and editing the Philiphaugh club’s web site, following the decision of ex-president John Smail to step down from the post.

Ryan, 16, is the youngest brother of Selkirk 1st XV captain Ross Nixon, and is hoping to study journalism at university once he completes his sixth year studies at Selkirk High next year. “John Rutherford asked me if I was interested in helping out with the club’s web site, and I told him I was keen to give it a try,” said Ryan.

“I’m looking to get into journalism, and this seems like a good opportunity to build up some experience,” added Ryan. “Obviously it’s going to be a bit of a learning curve, so I’m hoping people at the club will bear with me while I find my feet!

“I had a meeting with John Smail today to go over exactly what the job entails, and he said that everybody at the club would be more than happy to help me out. I’m looking forward to seeing Selkirk playing in the Premiership, so there’s going to be plenty to report on over the coming months.”

Ryan has just finished sitting four Highers – English, Music, Modern Studies and Graphics – and in sixth year will be studying Advanced Higher English, French and PE. Ryan lives with his parents, John and Maureen Nixon, at Hartwoodburn Farm, and away from school enjoys playing golf and watching rugby and football.

So how does he feel about approaching big brother Ross for a quote or two at the end of Selkirk’s matches next season? “Ross and I don’t talk that much anyway, to be honest, but I’m sure this is all going to change when I’ve got a notebook in my hand, so we’ll just wait and see!”

Here’s wishing Ryan the very best of luck, and anyone wishing to get in touch with him about stories or ideas for the selkirkrfc.com web site can contact Ryan by e-mail - r_nixon6@hotmail.co.uk - or by phone (mob. 07920 779 603).

in the Philiphaugh Suite (7pm start)



SELKIRK RFC development officer and 1st XV player Kieran Cooney has kindly organized two sports camps in partnership with BSLT and Selkirk Rugby Club. Details about these camps can be seen on the posters, but the BSLT Multi-Sports Camp is aimed towards P4-P7 age groups, and includes a number of different sports which will not only be great fun for the kids, but will help develop their key skills, and to introduce them to team sports.

The second camp, a ‘Selkirk RFC Only ‘ camp is based much more on rugby, and is aimed towards age groups from P4 to S2. Activities include fun evasive games and inflatable games, which will mainly be geared towards focusing and improving key rugby skills.

Both camps are £10 per day, and to book, or ask any questions, please contact Kieran Cooney via the details on the posters.


DUE to the successful first year of the new fob membership system at the Pavilion Gym, as well as the high quality equipment that the gym at Philiphaugh has continued to provide, it has been decided by the Selkirk RFC that the price of gym memberships is to be raised.
