DRUMLANRIG and Trinity were the toast of the PSA pitches on Saturday as they came out on top in the annual eight-a-side tournament.

Once again the PSA hosted a fantastic event for primary schools, which saw around 120 youngsters don their rugby kit and battle it out for the top prizes.

And with the rain relenting for much of the morning, with only the occasional shower, it was westenders Drumlanrig who defeated Denholm in the final to take the primary 6/7 trophy.

In the primary 4/5 section Trinity proved too strong for a plucky Wilton outfit to emerge victorious.

Each age group was split into two sections and matches were played in a round robin format, with the respective winners and runners-up facing eachother in the semi-finals.

Hawick Academy coach Rocky Johnstone told the Hawick News: “It was another fantastic day and despite the weather there was a great turnout of kids and parents to cheer them on.

“I thought the standard of rugby on show was terrific and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves which is what it’s all about.

“I’d like to thank the PSA for hosting another successful event and to all the volunteers and helpers who made it possible.”
