McFarlane prepares to bow out

HAWICK YM coach Jammy McFarlane takes charge of his final game today against the team that “broke his heart”.

McFarlane, who is in his second spell at the helm of the Mansfield Haugh outfit, has enjoyed phenomenal success over the last three seasons.

He helped them secure back-to-back promotions, winning the former Division Two with an unbeaten record that stretched the entire season.

And he took the Redskins to Murrayfield, where they lost out in the Shield final to Lasswade – tomorrow’s opponents.

McFarlane, who took up a rugby development officer post at Kelso at the start of the year, said: “Lasswade were the team that broke my heart at Murrayfield. That was a tough one to take.

“But I suspect if everybody who has said they’re playing does then we can get a win against them tomorrow.”

McFarlane has helped nurture talent like Lee Armstrong, Rory Scott, Stuart Graham and John Coutts and watched them step up and make an impact for the town’s senior side.

He added: “I’m very grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity and supporting me all the way.”
