An Old Bufty Writes For You!

Fabrizzio Marchetti – the Italian Stallion – and his Big Day (match photo’s to follow)! This scribe has had the privilege of watching a young man join our club from school and develop both as a player and as an individual. Today he led out his teammates as their captain – an honour he justly […]

Good stuff!

A Special, Morally-Upstanding Correspondent writes for you: Accies were 5 – 0 down before many of the supporters had left the bar and taken their places on the touch line. From a knock on over Accies line the Glens pack turned the Accies 8 at the subsequent 5 metres scrum, this turned Accies back row […]

Annan 34, Accies 34

The value of travelling down into Dumfriesshire and enduring an expensive bus journey is almost always measured by the quality and volume of the banter on the journey home. Admittedly the boys were well-fuelled for it with a quite obscene amount of alcohol onboard Fairline’s finest, courtesy of the local Co-op “mega-store”, but they cranked […]

1st XV v EK

Result: 28 – 13 Says it all really, boys and girls. A disappointing loss, especially given all the field position we enjoyed and the brief moment in the second half when, with a penalty to kick ourselves into a 14 – 16 lead, hopes did momentarily rise that we could go on to secure the […]

2 outta 3!!

At the risk of being accused of plagiarising the posting style of a former and long-lamented Accies scribe, it was that “behemoth” of rock, Mr Meat Loaf who crooned way back in 1977 “Now don’t be sad (don’t be sad), Cause two out of three ain’t bad!” No siree, 2 out of 3 WINS in […]

Shield Match Report: Killie 29, Accies 15

A 4 tries to 2 scoreline maybe not our finest ever hour, but for sheer guts and determination, we can take a lot away from todays semi-final Shield defeat. The early 1.30pm k/o left us cold and Killie promptly took the lead a few minutes from the start with a well worked and converted try. […]

Killie Match Report

“Ouch, ouch, ouch!”  We’re not allowed to use even redacted expeltives anymore lest we offend the finer sensibilities of certain self-appointed moral guardians of Scottish rugby who surf the net looking for naughty words these days, so those few from the nursery will have to do. For that was indeed a “sore” one! And by […]
