Last Thursday, March 12, Carrick Rugby hosted its annual S3 7s tournament at Rozelle Park.

The event, which was again sponsored by Electro Installations, has expanded from 6 to 12 schools entering.

The teams who took part were Carrick Academy, Lenzie Academy, Marr College, Duncanrig High School, The High School of Glasgow, Glasgow Academy, St Aloysius School, Wellington School, St Columba’s School, Jordanhill School, Grange Academy and Belmont House School.

Despite the bad weather, all teams played their matches in the best sporting manner with some fine attacking rugby on display throughout.

The eventual winners were Carrick Academy (Salver), Jordanhill School (Shield) and St Aloysius School (Cup). All of the winners were presented with winners’ medals by Head Teacher Mrs Stevens.

Gordon Brown, Faculty Head of Social Studies/RME and Head of Rugby, said, “Carrick Academy would like to thank Jim Cooper and Electro Installations for their continued support this season.

“The school would also like to thank the parents and friends who provided so many donations for the tuck shop and home baking stall.

“Once again it really shows the community spirit that Carrick Academy has.”
