ANNAN 15 v IRVINE 15
SUNDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2007
Irvine were the opponents on Sunday for the U16's first league encounter at a gloriously sunny Violetbank. Kenny Little led his team from the front, with the whole team behind him in what was a very enjoyable match to watch. No 8 Shaun Rutter was the first to get his name on the score sheet with a grand try, easily converted by a wired up Scott Wightman! Annan's next breege over the line was executed by big Norman Kerr, who was able to drag most of the Irvine team over the line with him! Again S Wightman added the extras.
Irvine pulled three unconverted tries back to lead 12-15 with minutes to go, when Annan were awarded a penalty around the away 22. A mature decision was made to take the 3 points and yet again S Wightman sparked the ball over the posts to claim a draw in a game that could easily have been a home win. This was a fine inaugural performance for this year's U16 league campaigners, with the entire team playing very well.
As always all youth players are valued, and anyone wishing to come along to training at u18 or u16 level will be most welcome. Come along Wednesdays at 6.30pm at Violetbank.
