Kirkcaldy held their now annual and first Legacy Community Sevens Tournament last Saturday sponsored by Digby Brown Solicitors. There were actually three events – Men, Ladies and Colts.
Before the Tournament started Kevin Moon and Tom Morgan of Raith Rovers appeared with the Ramsden Cup to give a great photo opportunity for the kids and adults alike. (Heather Bonner was in such a state of excitement that we had to calm her down!) Also we had a minutes silent for the death of Graeme Christie who passed away on the morning of the Tournament.
The Tournament was well attended and the weather was blustery but dry and sunny As well as the rugby there was the Condies village which consisted of a Tombola Stall, Face painting and a refreshments tent. There was the usual hamburger stall run by Jimmy Bonner and Guy Brewer while in the clubhouse there was Cake and candy and a stall set up by Digby Brown giving away a whole variety of goodies for the children.
In the Mens event there were suppose to be 4 leagues of three teams with the winners progressing to the Cup Semi Finals and the second placed team progressing to the Plate semi final. However Cartha Queens Park mens failed to turn up which meant that League was played with only one match. There was some good rugby played in the mens tournament from Hamiltom, Boroughmuir. Murrayfield Wanderers and the hosts Kirkcaldy. The Plate Final was between Murrayfield Wanderers and Perthshire with Murrayfield Wanderers the winners. In the Cup event the 1st Kirkcaldy VII met Boroughmuir with Boroughmuir winning an excellent final by 38-26.
In the Ladies event only three teams turned up – Cartha Queens Park, Midlands Select and Kirkcaldy. Midlands Select and Kirkcaldy contested the Final with Midlands Select winning comfortably.
The Colts event had a full house of teams with Boroughmuir winning the Cup and Kirkcaldy winning the Plate.
All in all it was a successful day for KRFC especially with a team in both mens and ladies finals and the Colts winning the Plate.
Grateful thanks must go to Alistair Stewart for organizing the whole event. He has put in some work to make the whole day happen. Thanks also to our sponsors Digby Brown and to Royal Bank of Scotland for sponsoring the match balls, Condies Chartered Accountants for providing the Condies Village and to Morrisons supermarket for providing food and soft drinks for the players.
