BATTLING PERFORMANCE BY SELKIRK’S PLAYERS NOT ENOUGH TO TOPPLE THE LEAGUE LEADERS

SELKIRK 10, MARR 19

IF a bonus point was awarded for grit and determination, then Selkirk’s gutsy display against Tennent’s Premiership leaders Marr at Philiphaugh on Saturday would surely have merited one.
As it was, the Souters came away with no tangible reward for their efforts, and now find themselves second-bottom of the league table, albeit with a couple of games in hand.
Head coach Scott Wight refused to use his side’s run of injuries as an excuse, focussing instead on the positives to be taken from the home team’s display.
“I couldn’t fault the boys’ work rate and effort,” he told the selkirkrfc.com website after the final whistle. “We definitely got a little bit of pride back today, and that’s the bar set for our season.
“I thought our forwards, from one to eight, stood their ground and went toe-to-toe with the opposition. Marr have a big, dominant pack and are top of the table for a reason. I thought we competed well throughout.
“Unfortunately we weren’t able to hold on to the ball and build phases, and as a result we’ve come up short in the end.
“Marr put us under a huge amount of pressure for long periods in the game. They take their chances, and when they do get chances they’re clinical and finish them off.”
Turning to the club’s injury difficulties, Wight said that because of the long-term nature of some of the players’ knocks, the team was now ‘in it for the long haul’.
“The squad is obviously quite thin at the moment, so it’s important boys turn up each Tuesday and Thursday for training and that we all stick together.
“We’ve got another game at home next week, which is a huge opportunity for us to get back out on the pitch and focus on our next task.”
A bright start saw the home side take the lead from a fourth minute Scott Clark penalty, following a typically incisive break by Selkirk’s ‘Tinnis Typhoon’, Scott McClymont.
A scything tackle by McClymont shortly afterwards, just as the visitors were beginning to build up a head of steam, epitomised Selkirk’s resistance, with Andrew McColm then stealing Marr line-out ball to thwart another attack.
Marr’s pressure remained unrelenting, however, and it came as no surprise when skipper Connor Bickerstaff materialised on the blind side of a ruck five metres from the home line to dive over in the corner for the game’s opening try.
A missed tackle then allowed Marr to once again flood into Selkirk’s 22, but Callum McNeill’s timely call for a mark allowed the home team to clear their lines.
Two minutes before halftime Selkirk hooker James Bett received a yellow card for repeated infringement at the ruck, and the interval came with Marr holding on to their 5-3 lead.
The hosts suffered another setback just after the break when centre Ross Nixon had to retire with a groin strain, allowing Lewis Martin to come off the replacements bench and team up with Ben Pickles in midfield.
Marr once again started to ramp up the pressure, and despite passing up a couple of scoring chances, lock David Andrew scored the visitors’ second try in the 53rd minute, converted by Calum Inglis, to put them 12-3 ahead.
Two kickable penalty chances were then turned down by Selkirk in favour of a line-out and quick tap, but both options failed to penetrate Marr’s sold defence.
A second try by Connor Bickerstaff in the 74th minute put the game beyond the home side’s reach, although Selkirk’s returning skipper, Ewan MacDougall, had the final say deep in injury time when he took Jack Hamilton’s pop-pass to scramble over for a try, supported by Frazer Anderson. Scott Clark’s successful conversion was the game’s final play.
The Four Seasons Forestry Selkirk ‘Man of the Match’ award went to Ben Pickles.

SELKIRK ‘A’ 12, HERIOT’S BLUES 2nds 67

INJURY-HIT Selkirk ‘A’ were left ‘singing the blues’ on Saturday, after Tennent’s East Reserve League 1 leaders Heriot’s Blues 2nds inflicted a heavy defeat on them.
Because the Souters were unable to field a front row, uncontested scrums were agreed, in addition to which the home side could only field 15 players so the result was never really in doubt.
Flanker Patrick Mullins and centre Connor Keys notched early tries for the visitors, but good work from the home pack saw No. 8 Robert Cook score under the posts to give Sam Cockburn an easy conversion.
Some telling runs from young Selkirk stand-off Thomas Martin kept the Heriot’s defence guessing, but visiting fly-half Angus Reid’s try made the halftime score 7-15.
With the wind at their backs and the use of six replacements, Heriot’s moved up a gear and ran in tries from Paul Christie, Richard Winton, Charles Dineen and flanker Caolan Moloney, two conversions being added by Reid.
Home skipper Liam Cassidy led from the front and continued to make the hard yards, well supported by Declan Broatch and brothers Callum and Jamie Turnbull. Their hard work was rewarded when centre Adam Nichol created the space for Thomas Martin to glide over for a well-taken try.
Injuries to David Cassidy and Kieran McGregor saw Selkirk reduced to 13 men, and tries by Gregor Fraser, Connor Keys and Ewan Adamson, plus three conversions by Christie and another by Adamson, completed the scoring.
“It would have been easy to cancel the game, but the boys wanted it to go ahead,” said ‘A’ XV team manager Bryan Hoggan. “We were up against a quality team, but this young side never gave up - even when chasing a lost cause.”
In the home pack Lawry Edwards showed great promise, encouraged by ever-improving scrum-half Ryan Legge, while in the backs ‘man of the match’ Adam Nichol continues to shine at centre.
SELKIRK – S. Cockburn, A. Cairney, D. Cassidy, A. Nichol, K. McGregor, T. Martin, R. Legge, L. Edwards, M. Stanners, D. Broatch, F. Robertson, C. Turnbull, L. Cassidy, J. Turnbull, R. Cook.

HARRIS TRUST TO RECEIVE SPECIAL BOOST FROM SUNDAY’S LILLIESLEAF 10k RUN

ONE of the most popular events on the Lilliesleaf community’s calendar takes place this Sunday, October 17, when runners (and walkers) will gather at Leaf Green for the village’s annual 10k run.
All funds raised from this year’s event will be donated to the Harris Trust*, a registered charity set up in memory of Lilliesleaf teenager and Selkirk rugby player Harris Macdonell, who died in August, 2020.
The run was started in 2015 by Harris’s mother, Jane Macdonell, as a fun community event that could double as a fund-raiser for different good causes.
“We’ve had another good entry,” Mrs Macdonell told the selkirkrfc.com website, “with over 70 runners signing up on-line.
“We also accept entries on the day, with a registration desk operating in the village hall from 10am. The run itself starts at 11am.”
Walkers, who are allowed to bring along their dog (which must be on a lead), will set off at 10am. No entry fee is required for walkers, although donations are welcome.
Around 100-120 runners are expected at this year’s event. The defending men’s champion is Mark Wilkinson, who finished the 2020 race in 44 minutes and 47 seconds, with Katie Nimmo the first female home that year in 57m 43s.
Helping Mrs Macdonell organise the run is Andrew Grant of Riddell Estate, over whose land the majority of the route passes.
Glass medals have been specially created for the event by local glass artist Inge Panneels, helped by her daughter Amber, a fifth year pupil at Selkirk High who also volunteers with the Harris Trust as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award qualification.
Ladies of the village hall group will serve soup in the hall, an added attraction being the delicious home-made bread baked by Mrs Macdonell’s husband Dave.
*The Harris Trust was set up earlier this year to help improve the lives and mental health of neurodivergent young people. Its three trustees are Jane & Dave Macdonell and Selkirk High School Rector Jamie Bryson. Representatives from Selkirk High School, Selkirk Rugby Club and the Scottish Rugby Union have joined trust meetings.
The Harris Trust’s aims are to raise awareness and provide training around mental health and neurodiversity; specifically to support the development of mentoring and peer support programmes for young people and promote respect, acceptance and a sense of belonging; and to support the provision of music and sport activities that would enhance the educational and social experience of young people with mental health and/or neuro-diverse issues.

RHINOS P5 PLAYERS TAKE CENTRE STAGE AS CURTAIN-RAISER TO FOSROC SUPER6 GAME AT MELROSE


The Selkirk Rhinos P5 players who competed in the pre-match tournament at the Greenyards on Friday night.

THE Selkirk Rhinos P5 team were involved in a four-team festival before Friday night’s FOSROC Super6 match between Southern Knights and Stirling County at the Greenyards.
The team played three games - against Melrose, Hawick and Gala - rotating a squad of 13 players so that everyone got equal game time.
“It was a fantastic experience for all involved,” Rhinos head coach Graham Marshall told the selkirkrfc.com website. “It ended with an opportunity for the youngsters to provide a guard of honour for the Knights and their opponents Stirling County.
“Our thanks go to all the parents who came along to cheer the players on, and to the Rhinos coaches Gareth Brown and Ross Nixon for their input on the night.”
The Knights eventually ran out comfortable 36-7 winners.

THE BEERS ARE ON JOSH, AS CLUB GEARS UP FOR AN OKTOBERFEST EXTRAVAGANZA!

LEDERHOSEN instead of club shirts & ties will be the order of the day at Philiphaugh this coming Saturday, October 16, when the players stage a special ‘Oktoberfest’ fund-raiser.
Organising the event is the club’s popular utility forward Josh Mackay (pictured), who this week told the selkirkrfc.com website that such has been the interest in the event that there are now only a few tickets left.
“Everybody’s really got behind the Oktoberfest concept,” said Josh, “and the social committee has received great support from club president Jim Harold and from bar steward Ann Hogg.
“There’s been a lot to organise, but I think it’s going to be a really enjoyable, fun day, and the sight of our players wearing lederhosen and Tyrolean hats is going to be worth the entry fee alone!”
Additional support has come from the Tweedbank-based Tempest Brewing Company, which is loaning the club a small self-contained bar, while Selkirk Distillers Ltd have also suppled a small bar for the event.
“The Philiphaugh Suite is going to be decked out in Bavarian-style decorations,” added Josh, “and there will be a hog roast to make sure everyone is well-fed.”
Tables have been booked by several well-known local figures, including Selkirk head coach Scott Wight and former Philiphaugh players Scott McColm and Mark Easson, while several members of the current playing squad have big-heartedly volunteered to act as waiters for the night.
Anyone wishing to purchase a ticket (price £20, which includes drink & food) is asked to contact Josh Mackay on 07733 087152.

 

 

GORDON HAPPY TO BE IN THE FRAME, AS NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC BOOK GETS SPECIAL EXPOSURE AT PHILIPHAUGH!


‘FRIENDS of Selkirk’ members and guests were treated to a generous helping of culture at Saturday’s annual pre-match lunch in the Philiphaugh Suite.
The guest speaker was none other than Selkirk Rugby Club’s Scottish internationalist Gordon Hunter (pictured), who gave a riveting talk on the book of photographs and poems he and best friend Don Ledingham recently published, entitled “Edinburgh Revisited”.
A highly accomplished photographer, Gordon explained how he and Don Ledingham had combined their photographic and poetic talents to creat a beautifully produced volume celebrating the capital’s enduring splendour in photos and poems.
Monies raised through sales of the book (and accompanying full-size prints), have so far raised an incredible £30,000, which has been divided equally between Leuchie House (the national respite centre for MS, MND and Stroke) and ‘500 miles’, a charity supporting the development and delivery of prosthetic and orthotic services in Malawi and Zambia.
Gordon was a member of the Scotland team that won the 1984 Grand Slam, and over the past 30 years he and Don have established reputations in their respective fields of photography and poetry.
“Edinburgh Revisited” picks out many of Edinburgh’s iconic views of the city, putting a twist on them, both in terms of the accompanying photographs and themed poems.
At Saturday’s lunch, Gordon displayed several of the book’s photos on the rugby club’s giant television screen. As well as reading some of the poems himself, members were also treated to recorded readings of two poems by former Heriot’s and Scotland player Andy Macdonald (the son-in-law of ex-Selkirk coach Harry Russell).
One of the most poignant moments, however, came when Selkirk rugby legend John Rutherford read the short poem written by Don to accompany a photo Gordon took of John holding the hand of one of his twin granddaughters.
Gordon brought along several of the books to sell, with proceeds on this occasion going to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and Selkirk Rugby Club. The grand total of £325 was realised.
Anyone wishing to order a copy of the book can contact Gordon by emailing him at gordon@ashkirk.net

 

WHEN IT COMES TO THE FAME GAME, ‘POSTER’ BOY PACKY HAS CLEARLY GOT IT LICKED!

IT’S not every day you take a call asking for your permission to use a photo of yourself, alongside the reigning monarch’s profile, on a United Kingdom postage stamp.
However, that’s exactly what happened earlier this summer to former Selkirk player Iain Paxton, whose image features on a set of UK stamps issued this month by Royal Mail to celebrate the Rugby Football Union’s 150th anniversary.
The eight stamps include photos of legends from the men’s and women’s games, and appropriately for a player who won 36 caps for Scotland - and made five test appearances for the British Lions - Iain Paxton’s photo is on a 1st Class stamp!
“I have to admit to being pretty surprised when someone from the Royal Mail got in touch with me at the end of June to see if I was happy to appear on the stamp,” Iain told the selkirkrfc.com website this week. “The only proviso was that I keep the information secret until the stamp’s release in October.”
The stamp in question features a picture taken during Scotland’s 32-9 win over Ireland at Lansdowne Road in the 1984 Five Nations Championship – a victory which secured Scotland the Triple Crown.
The Scots went on to clinch the country’s first Grand Slam since 1925 thanks to an exhilarating 21-12 victory over France at Murrayfield.
Playing alongside Iain Paxton at Lansdowne Road was Selkirk team-mate John Rutherford, while another Philiphaugh player – scrum-half Gordon Hunter – came on as a replacement for Roy Laidlaw in the second half to win his first international cap.
“It was a pretty amazing game at Lansdowne Road,” said Iain. “Ireland had been a bit of a bogey team for us, so when we found ourselves leading 22-0 at halftime, I had to keep pinching myself, wondering if this was really happening!
“It was obviously very special when Gordon came on for Roy, although it turned out to be a bitter-sweet debut.”
As soon as the final whistle blew, the players had to run for the tunnel as hundreds of supporters invaded the pitch. As he dashed through the crowd, Gordon suffered a freak injury following an accidental clash of heads with a schoolboy, which left Gordon with a fractured cheekbone.
Apart from Iain and Roy, the other Scotland players who appear on the 1st Class stamp are Jim Calder (Stewart’s/Melville FP), skipper Jim Aitken (Gala) and Alan Tomes (Hawick).
Iain Paxton’s career at Philiphaugh ran from 1980-1993, during which time he made 208 appearances for the 1st XV and scored a total of 57 tries.
Here’s hoping it won’t be too long before we see Iain back for a visit to Philiphaugh, which after all is his old ‘stamping’ ground…

 

HERIOT’S OFFICIALS PRAISE SELKIRK’S MEDICAL TEAM FOR CARE GIVEN TO INJURED PLAYERS

SATURDAY’S reserve league match between Selkirk ‘A’ and Heriot’s Blues 2nds had to be halted for 30 minutes in the first half, so that on-field treatment could be given to the visitors’ injured loosehead prop, Findlay Stiven.
“Findlay had suffered a serious knee injury,” team manager Bryan Hoggan told the selkirkrfc.com website, “so I went to fetch our sports therapist Katy Lowthian from the main pitch, who in turn asked club doctor Jeff Cullen (pictured) to help.
“The player received Entonox pain relief before having his left leg put in a splint, and when everything had been stabilised he was taken from the pitch by stretcher.
“Not long afterwards another Heriot’s player had to receive treatment after damaging ankle ligaments, and later on yet another member of the visiting team had to be leave the field with suspected concussion. It was a busy old afternoon!”
Over the weekend, Selkirk president Jim Harold received the following email from Neil Meikle, Heriot’s FP’s Director of Rugby:
‘Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your coaches’ and medical team’s assistance for our injured player Findlay Stiven. The physios, Jeff Cullen and Bryan Hoggan were all fantastic.
‘It’s very reassuring when a player receives that level of care after a serious injury, so a big thanks from all of us at Goldenacre.’
Another appreciative message was sent to Bryan Hoggan from Heriot’s Craig Robertson: ‘Just wanted to thank you personally, and all of your med team, for the great work they did yesterday. First class and thoroughly appreciated.’
Finally, the following Face Book message was posted on Selkirk Rugby Club’s FB page by Robert McKillop:
‘Thank you to all at Selkirk, and especially all of the medical staff, for the help and care they gave to the two injured Heriot’s players in the 2nds game. It was hugely appreciated by all of the coaches and players in the Heriot’s squad. Thank you.’
So well done to all those Selkirk representatives involved on Saturday for doing such a sterling job. Helping and supporting each other is what the game of rugby is all about.

 

‘ONE-UP, ONE-DOWN’ RULE TO REMAIN IN FORCE FOR SELKIRK ‘A’s LEAGUE COMPETITION

SELKIRK’S secretary, Rob Harkness, recently received the following statement from Reserve League secretary Neil Crooks, confirming the promotion and relegation rules for season 2021/2022.
‘As per Reserve League Regulation 3.2, this is usually based on one up and one down system unless circumstances make it appropriate to amend promotion and relegation.
 ‘The Reserve League Committee took an additional few weeks to allow the competitions to settle down before confirming that the following promotion and relegation arrangements are in place for the Tennent’s Reserve Leagues for the 2021-22 season:   
‘Tennent’s East Reserve 1 [Selkirk ‘A’s league]: One team relegated and one promoted from East 2, with the league to remain at 10 teams.’
