Selkirk RFC have announced that their President, Rob Forrest (pictured) will lead the club into the 2017-18 season. This follows their AGM in which Vice President Benny Rafferty will also continue in that role. The club recently had a successful tour to Barcelona where they took on and beat local side Vilanova 60-21 in a 10-try rout. Darren Clapperton scored four of them with James Bett bagging a hat trick. The club are preparing for their opening match in BT National 1 league against Musselburgh on September 2nd, while home fans will need to wait until the week after to see them play at Philiphaugh against Aberdeen Grammar.
