Hawick Albion win Scottish Youth U16 Cup
Saturday, February 11th, 2017
The youngsters of Hawick Albion and Hawick High School beat off the highly fancied Ayr/Wellington School team to win the Scottish Youth Under 16 Cup at the national stadium.
They went behind early on to an Ayr score by Hooker Scott Clelland but a well-taken penalty from Bailey Donaldson settled the nerves and Hawick were just two points adrift at the break. A chargedown from centre Mully Bannerman led to an opportunist try which was converted by Donaldson, and a further long-range penalty by the Albion full back gave the Borderers a crucial eight point lead, meaning Ayr would have to score at least twice. Ayr did manage a second try through Prop Conlan McLuckie late in the game but the “Baby Greens” held on for a memorable win.
