KIRKCALDY LADIES 24 ANNAN WARRIORS 31

Kirkcaldy Ladies welcomed newly-promoted Annan Warriors to Beveridge Park for the first league game of the season. With a game already under their belt it was the visitors who started brighter, and after 20 minutes Annan had two tries and 12 points on the scoreboard.

Kirkcaldy finally got their game going and after good ball retention, new girl Rose Dolan was put clear to score out wide. Another newbie Hollie Sharp was unlucky not to score when she misjudged the lines on the pitch. The ball was recycled though and it was Dolan again who finished it off. Unfortunately both conversions were missed to leave Kirkcaldy two points down at half time.

KIRKCALDY  60 ABERDEENSHIRE  0

In recent seasons Kirkcaldy have taken some serious beatings by Aberdeenshire but on Saturday at Beveridge Park they took ample revenge with a nine try win which put them to the top of National 2.

Back in a Kirkcaldy jersey after a season at Dundee, Number 8 Dayle Turner created a new club record with six of these tries. He was aided by fellow back row man Rhys Bonner who scored the other three.

Aberdeenshire have been amongst the promotion contenders from National 2 in each of the last three seasons but after a club re-organisation and a new relationship with Aberdeen Grammar they have made a disastrous start to the present campaign, now having lost all their games so far. Their players for this game seemed ill prepared and lacked the pace and intent Kirkcaldy showed from the start.

Second half comeback for the Blues

PEEBLES 26  KIRKCALDY 35

The Blues astounded the large Peebles crowd ready to celebrate their comfortable home win with a stunning finale, which turned a 26-18 deficit with just over ten minutes left into a bonus point victory.

Forwards coach Kenny Fraser, while delighted his side had won, tempered his praise with an admonition.  “We were very much on top in the early stages with two tries on the board. Then we had two dubious yellow cards in quick succession and while we were short handed we lost fourteen points and went 20-10 behind. The comeback to win the game was great but I'm concerned by the way we allowed the game to drift for quite a while, wasting scoring chances” He was also keen to praise the contribution of youngsters James Barclay, Scott McKervail and Scott Barclay  “These boys are just out of the colts and they are learning quickly and will be important to our squad in the months to come”

There were signs in the opening stages that Kirkcaldy would have a decided forward advantage, both at scrummages and line-outs as well as a rolling driving maul. This proved vital in the first score of the game.  A teasing kick from Craig Letham forced Peebles full back Ruaridh Clinch to concede a line-out ten metres from the try line. A driving maul set up a scoring position which eventually produced an unconverted try for hooker Greg Wallace.

KIRKCALDY 28 HOWE OF FIFE 17

When Howe beat Kirkcaldy in a National 4 fixture at Beveridge Park in the 1973-74 season, the first of league rugby, little did the Blues think then that forty four years would pass before their side beat the Cupar team in a national competitive game. Certainly the clubs were in different divisions for thirty-one years, though they did meet in local cup games and friendlies in which the Blues had more than their fair share of wins. This Kirkcaldy victory however marks the end of this period of Howe supremacy.

Nevertheless this bonus point win was a significant one for Kirkcaldy, giving them an ideal start to the new National 2 campaign. Captain for the day prop George Mangalo, leading his team for the first time in his lengthy career, bubbled with enthusiasm after the match “Even with a few players absent for different reasons we have to be pleased with our performance, dominating the forward exchanges and defending strongly when necessary”.

HOWE OF FIFE 38 KIRKCALDY 24 (after extra time)

Perfect underfoot and overhead conditions greeted the new rugby season at Duffus Park with the first round of the BT National League Cup.

Kirkcaldy had early dominance in the set pieces and after a try had been chalked off for a knock on the returning Dayle Turner touched down in the 12th minute following a push over with Craig Letham converting.

The referee regularly pulled up both teams for ruck offences but Kirkcaldy continued to hold the upper hand territorially. Number 8 Matt Harvey excelled at this stage. Following a one handed line-out take he then strolled through the Howe defence to set up Turner for his second try in the 28th minute and give Kirkcaldy a 12-0 lead.

Monday, 08 May 2017
On Saturday 6th May 2017 Kirkcaldy Rugby club’s senior, ladies and colts 7s teams attended a sunny but breezy Duffus Park, Cupar for the annual Howe of Fife 7s tournament.

The seniors were drawn in a tough group alongside 2 Scots from Edinburgh and Morgan FP rugby club, the ladies pool contained Watsonians and Melrose and the colts had Howe B and Glenrothes to compete with. 

Due to several teams failing to turn up on time for the start the schedule had to be altered for the tournament giving Kirkcaldy seniors only 10 minutes to prepare for their first tie against 2 Scots.
