Happy campers learn skills from the Falcons: Langholm youth rugby hosts two-day camp for 79 enthusiastic youngsters



SEVENTY-NINE youngsters took part in a rugby camp at Milntown in Langholm this week along with members of the Newcastle Falcons Community Foundation.
Children aged six to 16 enjoyed the two days of coaching by Callum Lawn, Struan Hutchison, Keith Robinson, Ryan Ramsay and Scott Rattray.
As well as Langholm, the Falcons run coaching camps in Cumbria and Northumberland and will run one in Annan in October.
Davie Oliver, who coaches in Langholm schools, also assisted with the camp and lunch was served by parents in the club house.
Davie said: “It’s a great day for the club and gives a good start to the season and builds the players’ skill-sets.
“It also gets young folk, who have had no interest in rugby, involved.
“It’s good to see the young folk meeting their peers from other towns.”
The young people taking part came from Langholm, Annan, Hawick and Dumfries and they were all presented with Falcons’ T-shirts by the coaches.
Keith Robinson said they enjoyed coming to Langholm and they coached mostly through games.
Davie Gordon of Langholm Youth Rugby Trust, added: “This year the coaching camp sold out.
“It’s a great way to keep the interest in rugby.
“As well as a T-shirt, each person gets a £5 voucher for the Falcons’ shop.
“In January some of the Langholm youngsters will be mascots for the Newcastle Falcons game against Doncaster Knights.”
