Youth Rugby


Report by Davie Oliver
Annan Under 14s: 44
Langholm: 18
On Wednesday November 20 the Under 14 rugby team travelled to Annan to play the first game of the season playing a well drilled and well coached Annan side who hadn’t been beaten in six games and that winning streak went to seven wins.
Annan went into the lead in the first five minutes and were in control throughout the match and the result was never in doubt.
The Langholm boys settled into the match after realising that kicking possession away only let Annan run back at them but with ball in hand. The Langholm back line could show off the talented runners they had, and this paid off with Filip Kubecki scoring four and Cain Maxwell adding his name to the score sheet.
The forwards to begin with thought helping the backs was a better idea than doing the dirty work on the ground but then the penny dropped and they started making the big hits and gaining the hard yards to let the backs attack.
As the game went on the boy’s looked comfortable and gained confidence and showed that they can compete up front and in the back line.
To a man they all played well and their heads never went down showing good team spirit.
A big thanks to the Langholm loyal people who came over to support the lads. Also, a big thanks to Annan for the match and hospitality.
Moffat Under 14s: 42
Langholm: 35
The under14s travelled to Moffat on Sunday for their second match in four days. They got off to the perfect start and were a try up within two minutes with a Filip Kubicki try.
Moffat hit back with two tries but Langholm hit back with another two tries from on-form centre Kubicki.
Points were traded between the teams over the 60 minutes and the Langholm boys led by Kerr Gordon played well for the most but let the Moffat team back into the game by not committing to the break down. But these are under 14 lads who are learning the game and in the last 20 minutes they hit everything hard looking for the winning score.
Connor Crawley along with centre Andrew Whittil who scored a try in the match, and was always willing to attack came close. Danny Hotson (who converted all Langholm’s tries) was always trying to get the backs going. In the last movement of the game Moffat scored a try to win the match.
The Langholm boys gave their all against a big Moffat pack and tackled them at every point. The backs were always trying to go forward and score. There are a few points to work on at training but all in all it was a good run out.
The boys were disappointed at the end but that hunger will spur them on at training and in the next match.
Thanks to Janie Hotson for all her hard work in organising team matters – the boys and I appreciate it.
