LIVINGSTON Rugby Club crossed the border and conquered in style as they won the Fair Play trophy at the Darlington Festival of Rugby.
A 20 strong group of boys headed south to represent Livingston RC in the under 14 age group.
And despite being physically the smallest and youngest team in their age brackets the West Lothian boys played extremely well particularly against the larger and heavier forward packs they were pitched against.
Throughout the entire tournament Livingston did not concede a single penalty and this tremendous record helped them land the most prestigious trophy in the tournament — the Fair Play trophy.
The team were generously hosted by the 5th Regiment Royal Artillery at Marne Barracks, Catterick who housed the boys for the weekend and provided access to the training facilities during their stay there.
Livingston Rugby Club President Dougie Wood said: “The club is committed to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle through rugby.
“I am delighted that, supported by West Lothian Council who provided access to their mini buses and the 5th Regiment Royal Artillery who provided accommodation, we were able to send 20 boys and their coaches to compete in this prestigious tournament.
“Our players acts as ambassadors for West Lothian and I am delighted that they have been recognised for this on tour.
“We welcome all ages, fitness levels and abilities into the club. If you are interested in getting a little fitter, learning or returning to the game we would be delighted to welcome you.”
