1st 16s Vs Craiggy @ Northern

Last game of the season against the new Division 1 Champions,and they turned up for this last game with an unrecognizable 1st 16 team with several players away on holiday and nothing at stake, John Urquahart and James Barr were the only ones to come out of this one with pass marks for the Northern,Ian Miller had a reasonably close game and Young Gogs and Co were turned over big style,so we finish the season with a 5-4 defeat, not the worst season ever though as we have ended up in 5th place with Brunstane just below us and Tanfield and Summerside falling through the trap door into Div 2,

Congratulations to Div 1 winners Craigentinny,

and next year we welcome Carricknowe into Div 1 for the 1st time and also Postal,

Well done to the Northern lads,and well done to the seconds who were runners up in Div 1.
