Shawlands Academy Emerging Schools Champions

Shawlands Academy win the Emerging Schools Rugby Championship


A massive congratulations to the Under 14's Rugby team on won the Glasgow Emerging Schools Cup on Wednesday afternoon. The team have played a total of 11 games since the start of January and have remained undefeated throughout the whole competition, a fantastic achievement.




The semi-final and final were both played at Cartha Rugby Club against two extremely difficult opponents. The team produced their best performance of the year in the semi's defeating a very strong Paisley Grammar team 5 tries to 0. In the final the boys put in a very gutsy display beating a St Rochs team, that was significantly bigger than them 3 tries to 2. What makes this victory even more impressive is that a large number of the boys had no experience of playing Rugby before they came to Shawlands Academy.


Our thanks to our Rugby Coach, Mr Renwick and the SRU for their support of the school's School Of Rugby programme.
