Dalriads Secure Victory In Scotland

On Friday 22nd February 2013 a group of 48 boys and 4 coaching staff from Dalriada travelled to Glasgow to watch the Ulster versus Glasgow game, followed by matches on Saturday against U13 and U14 rugby teams from Hutcheson Grammar School.

On Saturday there were near perfect playing conditions and all three Dalriada squads played exceptionally well and recorded three good wins against their Scottish opposition. The final score in the U13A match was 48-5 to the Dalriada boys and the U13B team had an almost equally impressive 39-5 victory. The U14 team faced particularly strong opponents in a Hutcheson Grammar U14 side who had only been beaten twice in the whole of Scotland; once again the Dalriads securedĀ a 36-19 win.

After the game the Dalriada boys were treated to refreshments by their excellent Scottish hosts. Gifts were exchanged to mark the occasion and the Man of Match Awards were presented.

The Dalriada U13 and U14 teams now look forward to tournaments to bring the curtain down on what was been an outstanding season for this squad of talented players.
