Deeside Micros take part at Ellon Micro Festival

By Sandra Marshall

Good running rugby, brilliant sport play and determined touch tackles.

14 hardy Micros turned up to play in the Ellon Micro Rugby festival on Sunday, 24 March with a "guest" appearance as coach for the day by Under 14s Coach David Smart and two Under 14 Deeside players. The regular Micro coaches were apparently on a coach training course for the day so weren't available ...or maybe they just needed a long lie on a Sunday...?

The 14 Micros were split into two teams and had 5 games in their pool, playing 2 x Ellon teams, Wanderers, Mackie and Grammar. Both teams played brilliant rugby and only lost one game out of the 5 and were game-coached by the two Under 14 players. It was great fun and it was good to hear the referee commenting after the festival how well the Deeside teams played with good running rugby and brilliant sport play from team mates and some determined touch tackles.

Everybody was a winner at the medal ceremony with some very happy smiles. Every Deeside Micro played in the best spirit of rugby and were very respectful to all the other teams.

Well done Deeside Micros!!

A selection of photos from the day are available on the Micros home page.
