Below I am just sketching out a few thoughts and dates for you to be aware of / participate in or give me your thoughts on during the next few weeks:
Saturday 13 January
Orkney v Ardrossan kicks ofd at 2pm on the main pitch at Pickie. I hope to see you there and/or in the Clubhouse afterwards. I will be behind the bar before and after the game.
The U18s are also playing across the Firth on Saturday with a 13:30 K.O v Muntly in Thurso.
The first XV’s other fixtures in January are:
20 January – away to St Boswells
27 January – home to Glasgow Accies
Monday 15 January
7pm Paul Livingstone is running a fitness session between 7 and 7.45pm in the Pickie main hall for any interested players
After the fitness session Paul will be running a blackboard analysis and discussion session of the Orkney v Ardrossan game with players and anyone who is interested in listening is welcome to come along. I will be at both sessions – watching the first and listening to the second – Paul has said to me that he would welcome all of the Club’s players and coaches coming along to join in both or either.
Saturday 20 January
I would like to organise an internal game on this date as the first XV are away to St Boswells and we could have an internal game in either Kirkwall or Dounby. My preference would be to have a game in Dounby with a kick off at 1330 as we haven’t played there for a while but I would be happy just to get another game organised.
Let me know if you are interested and circulate this to your rugby pals to try and get them along for a game. Please let me know if you think people will come out for a game
I would need a referee for such a game so refs please let me know if you could manage this fixture
See you Saturday if not before
