SELKIRK ‘A’ XV’S YOUNG PLAYERS
MAKING GOOD PROGRESS, SAYS COACH
Kelso 2nds 24, Selkirk ‘A’ 54
DESPITE showing several changes in their starting
line-up from the previous weekend, Selkirk ‘A’ managed to maintain their high-tempo style of play to record a convincing
win over Kelso 2nds at Croft Park on Saturday.
No-one was more pleased with the result than coach Darren Hoggan, who praised both the teamwork and fitness of
his young players. “We’re improving every week,” he said after the game, “and that’s always a good sign.
“The boys scored some cracking tries today, and perhaps more importantly looked to be enjoying themselves. There’s
a good feeling in the squad right now, and hopefully we can build on this in the weeks ahead.”
Selkirk’s eight tries in the match were scored by Bruce Riddell, Liam Cassidy, Harry Borthwick, Lewis Martin, Gary
Robertson, David Cassidy, Jy Griffin and Liam Blair. Scott Clark kicked seven conversions.
