A Message Of Congratulations From Chairman Sir David Reid and Gavin Hastings

04th May 2015

A message from Chairman Sir David Reid, sponsors, investors and Club members to all players, coaches, the High Performance Department, CEO Kenny Baillie and his team.

Dear all

A short note to congratulate you all on one of our best performances of the season against one of the strongest sides.

Yes we were ahead and hanging in there for the win and it was not to be on Saturday.

This in no way, however, detracted from your achievement.

I think all the spectators enjoyed and celebrated your performance and the huge commitment and skill to come back from 17-3 down to lead with a couple of minutes to go and to within an inch of victory.

We were proud of you all!

We have a man of the match which I named as Mark Bright but you were all, without exception, 'men of the match.'

It was a real pleasure to see the cheering support you earnt from the crowd. 

Very fitting, if that is our last home game (I'm hoping not!!).

It has been a very successful season where we beat our target and finished third in the Championship. 

So rest the bruises and good luck on Friday for the away leg.

You can do it! 

Best Reidy 

Former London Scottish captain, Lions and Scotland legend, Gavin Hastings, was also full of praise for the side after Saturday's match.

He said: “It was a most enjoyable occasion and I thought Scottish were truly excellent for long periods of the match.

“What a shame the referee saw fit to end the match on a penalty try!

“It was good to catch up with a few old faces in the crowd including Derek White and Craig Chalmers and I thought the crowd at the game were in good and hearty voice throughout. 

“Well done to the team for their spirited display and good luck for the return match on Friday night.

“Thanks for a super day.”
