We had a fantastic turn out for our first Wednesday night session, with great S1 numbers showing real eagerness to train. The Wednesday sessions will run every week at Raeburn Place from 18.30-19.30 for S1-U18s, providing training and fun. All abilities are welcome and we look forward to seeing you all.

It was great to see good numbers down at Raeburn Place on Sunday morning for mini rugby training too. The training sessions involved lots of small-sided games and there were some great skills on display. Mini rugby coaching continues this Sunday at 10.30, followed by the start of season BBQ at 11.30.


Trinity Academy: Trinity U18s had a huge win over Lasswade on Saturday morning, with a mammoth 76-0 score line. Some standout performances amongst the team came from Angus Dolan, who scored four tries, and Hamish Styles, who pulled the strings whilst playing out of position. Overall this was a satisfying game to watch, with lots of fast-flowing, attacking rugby, which is how we want to play.

Trinity Academy’s U16s narrowly lost to Lasswade in a game that was constantly in the balance. It was great to see some of the new S3 players stepping up and getting stuck in within the U16 environment. We are sure the team will continue to work hard and make good progress.

The school’s newly formed S1 team had a successful first game, with an encouraging turnout and some good ability on display. Unfortunately they were beaten by a strong Lasswade side, but if the numbers continue then the strength of the team can only grow and we will begin to see the results change in our favour.

Broughton Primary School: This week sees the start of a new block of delivery at Broughton Primary School, with our new Modern Apprentice (MA), Ben Appleson, taking their P5 classes.

After School Clubs: This week saw the return of our after school club at Broughton High School. The sessions will run on Mondays from 15.45 to 16.45.
