GOLD CLUB LUNCH – INFO FOR INVESTORS
Written by Graeme Hannah   
Tuesday, 27 September 2016
Kirkcaldy rugby club has recently made a conscious effort to invest in its youth rugby players, boys and girls. As a club with limited resources, buying players in to play is not really an option, however improving our youth numbers and developing our own youth players is an option. It is also a way of improving the clubs profile in the local community; these children have parents, siblings and friends who we also want close to our club. This club, our club, I believe, is all about community, youth and rugby.
 
Four years ago we became involved with the Modern Apprentice scheme; we employed Curtis Hollingworth and engaged with all the local primary schools and high schools, introducing rugby to boys and girls alike. Last year we managed to employ Curtis as a full time Rugby Development coach working primarily at Balwearie High School, there he started an S1/2 team and also ran a course where S5/6 pupils were taught rugby coaching, refereeing and strength and conditioning as part of their curriculum. Following last year’s success, this year he has individual S1 and S2 school teams and an u15/16 school team. We also this year have another modern apprentice Greg Stewart running rugby at the Balwearie High School feeder primary schools.

KIRKCALDY 24  WHITECRAIGS  32

After their thumping win in Glasgow the previous week Kirkcaldy came down to earth with a bump at Beveridge Park with a loss to in form Whitecraigs.  Everything appeared to be going Kirkcaldy's way in the first half hour as they built up a convincing 17-3 lead then things went awry

The concession of two long range penalties kicked by visiting stand off Stephen Gillies barely registered as the Blues were dictating play with backs and forwards combining impressively.  A bonus point Kirkcaldy win seemed to be on the cards.

Player coach Quintan Sanft  had drafted himself into the scrum half berth in the absence of the unavailable Gavin McKenzie.  Sanft had been marshalling his troops well as the Kirkcaldy lead  built up.  Then the Samoan suffered  rib damage and had to retire from the game.  His absence was keenly felt in the second period as the back division lost its sense of purpose, particularly in defence.

HILLHEAD/JORDANHILL 7 KIRKCALDY 58

Few anticipated the rout which developed at Hughenden last Saturday as Kirkcaldy overwhelmed their hosts by a ten try to one margin. Almost a year ago at the same venue the Blues just survived, having seen a twenty five point lead whittled down to four in the space of a few minutes and in the cup match a few weeks later which was subsequently abandoned the Hills had a lead which they showed no sign of surrendering.

Almost from the kick-off in perfect conditions, both underfoot and overhead, Kirkcaldy quickly spotted they had a marked advantage up front. Scrummaging any penalty within striking distance and skilfully using the touch line where lock James Pow ruled they had the home team scrambling in defence early in the game. In the sixth minute two massive forward drives saw the ball flash out to the backs to give centre Conor Littlejohn the scoring opportunity for the Blues' opening counter converted by Finlay Smith.
