Mackie Rugby Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year has taken place with all members of the club getting involved on the day.
A Rugbython was held up at Redcloak last Saturday, August 23, with a whole day of rugby taking place.
Every age group was involved from the P2 Micros to the over 35 Mammoths (middle age men mainly over the hill).
The day started at 8am with over 12 hours of rugby finishing up on Saturday night.
There were BBQ’s, tuck shops and other stalls on the day and the 1st XV played their first competitive game of the season in a cup game against Dundee side Morgan winning 70-14.
Shona Dyer, from the club, said: “We did manage to keep playing rugby until 11pm, despite the midges. Everyone was celebrating though after the 1st XV win of 70-14 over Dundee side Morgan in the BT Caledonia Shield.
“We had lots of new players sign up on the day but we are still looking for more at all age groups from P2 through s to U18.”
Anyone interested can find details on the club’s website www.mafprfc.org or by turn up at Mackie Academy school on Saturday mornings at 9.30am.
