Saints Colts had a memorable 14pts to 10 win over League rival, Stirling County on 16th November. Speaking after the game, delighted Coach Rab McHenry said “this was by far the hardest game the boys have had to date and the fantastic win is further proof of how far they have come in their development. By the way they are playing – with great team spirit and so much skill and determination … we’ve got lots more to come”.
“It is quite incredible how far this bunch of young colts have come with this win over the 2011 Scottish U18s champions. When I started with them as coach in S1, I had 3 boys at training. On Saturday a squad of 25 turned up determined to topple the confident visitors.”
