Huge congratulations to Emily [S3] for being named player of the match in the glorious Murrayfield sunshine on Sunday 6th May. As part of the Highland Rugby Football Team U’15 girls side, Emily along with 11 of her GGS team mates made up 3/4 of the squad who took on Lismore [Edinburgh] in the final of the Scottish Shield in Edinburgh.
The sure boot of Emily converted 6 trys from 6 to ensure a very narrow victory over Lismore, which was only really decided in the last 7 minutes of the game. The wilful girls dug extremely deep to secure the win and there were other notable performances from the rest of the team, comprising; Caitlin [S2], Gemma [ S3] Poppy [S3] Rosie [S3] Rossana [S4], Eilidh [S2] Danielle [S2] Molly [S2] Alanah [S2] Megan [S4].
For your grit, determination and staying power- WELL DONE GIRLS!!!!!!
