Issue Number 04 | November 2019 Marr College Rugby Conference Update Marr College Rugby has had a fantastic start to the year. We have stepped up into the L200 Conference which now sees us competing against 5 Glasgow Private Schools in Saturday morning fixtures from P6-U18. This has provided our players with a high level of competition on a regular basis which is only good for their individual and team development. We have had some fantastic performances in the Conference so far and currently sit in a tie for 4 th place. Our S1 A & B teams have certainly been the shining lights so far winning all their matches to date and regularly fielding 30 players. Team The High School of Glasgow Hutchesons' Grammar School The Glasgow Academy St Aloysius' College Marr College Kelvinside Academy Rounds 3 3 3 3 3 3 Points 51 48 42 37 37 19 Our U16 & U18 teams have both had a fantastic run in the Scottish Cup with both still involved. The U18 squad are in the Quarter Final of the Cup and take on High School of Glasgow on Tuesday 5 th November for a place in the Semi Final. They have overcome Lomond School, St Aloysius College and The Glasgow Academy to reach this stage. The previous round match with The Glasgow Academy was a fantastic game, we scored a try in the final minute of the match to take the win 15-12 in front of a crowd of more than 100 spectators on the College playing fields. We are striving to provide playing opportunities for all pupils at Marr College. We run a Girls Rugby club on Mondays after school from 3.45-5.00pm. We regularly have 15 girls attending but are always on the lookout for new players. Our aim is to play competitive fixtures against local schools in 2020.
