Success for Langholm Youth


Youth Rugby

LANGHOLM Youth Rugby players enjoyed a successful day at the Dumfries tournament last Sunday.
P6/7s finished runners-up. They started with a draw against Moffat, with Greig Cartner scoring.
The second game was against Dumfries P7 team. Langholm fielded a mix of P6/7 and the more experienced Dumfries team edged it 3-1. Greig scored another.
Langholm defeated Stewartry, scoring four tries by Greig, Logan Jamieson and Ellis Dirom scored twice.
Against Dumfries P6 team Langholm played some great rugby to win 3-2. Greig added to his haul and Daniel Cattermole and Logan Jamieson also crossed the whitewash.
Annan was next up and a last play of the game score by the try-scoring machine Greig rescued a draw. The score ended 2-2. Greig also scored the first try.
With the team now in full flow, they completed their day’s work with wins against Newton Stewart and Wigtownshire. Logan added another try, Ellis completed a hat-trick and Greig added another double to score eight tries during the tournament.
It was good to watch the team grow through the tournament and the inter-passing involved in some of the scores was first class.
All the squad played their part in a good all-round day and missed out on winning the shield by only one point.
Team: Glen Jamieson, Ellis Dirom, Jack Hotson, Beth Porter, Ben Coulthard, Toby Coulthard, Alistair Lockie, Ross Hislop, Daniel Cattermole, Noah Smith, Logan Jamieson, Greig Cartner.
The six P4/5 boys finished runners-up. The conditions were great for running rugby and all players displayed good skills and competitive spirit.
Being the first tournament of the year, the Lions took a couple games to find their stride and confidence. They eventually tightened up in defence and scored some great team tries.
Their handling skills have greatly improved and very few errors were made with ball in hand, showing their commitment and hard work at training is paying off.
A special mention for Riley Smith who played his first tournament for the Langholm Lions. He got stuck in from start to finish and was rewarded with some some great tries. A massive thanks to Clare Osborne for cleaning the rugby shirts.
Players: Connor Forster, Jack Hughes, Harry Vevers, Riley Smith, Jayden McVittie, Owen Rose. Another (borrowed player).
Langholm 5-3 Annan. Tries: Jayden McVittie, Owen Rose and Another x3; Dumfries P5 6-3 Langholm. Tries: Owen Rose x2 and Jayden McVittie. Stewartry 2-2 Langholm. Tries: Jayden McVittie, Jack Hughes; Langholm 5-3 Dumfries P4. Tries: Jack Hughes , Riley Smith x2, Jayden McVittie and Owen Rose. Wigtownshire 2-4 Langholm. Tries: Connor Forster, Owen Rose, Riley Smith and Another.
P2/3 won two, lost one and drew one. Really pleased with their performances, considering they haven’t played for a while.
Luke Rome played in his first tournament and did exceptionally well.
Langholm host their own tournament at Milntown this Sunday at 11am.
