This week’s round up from the One Club.
U7s combined with the U8 team for the half term training session, more than holding their own with the older squad.
The team is developing strongly now, building on the success at the recent festivals. Handling skills are improved all round and the squad is mastering more complex training drills as the season progresses.

Girl’s Rugby Update:
On Sunday 3rd November London Scottish girls squad hosted a Pitch Up and Play event on behalf of Middlesex Rugby for all clubs with girls in the county.
Across the age groups U18, U15, U13 and U11 we had 90 girls participating from clubs including Ruislip, Twickenham, Harlequins, Teddington, London Welsh, Chiswick as well as a few girls currently unattached to clubs.
The event was lead and managed by the Scottish girls squad coaches supported by club community coaches and five first team players who gave part of their Sunday. A great example of the One Club in action.
Feedback from all was positive, the players enjoyed themselves and the objective of getting girls game experience was achieved. It’s hoped that further events will take place during the season across Middlesex.
Tim Lawn – Head of Girl’s Rugby
On Wednesday 6th November 24 schools attended Kew Football Club to take part in the Kingston Borough Tag Tournament.
London Scottish community coaches and professional players were on hand to run and officiate the tournament which saw 240 kids playing across six pitches – a fantastic morning of rugby for all.
We caught up with One Club Rugby Director after the event:
“We’ve been working with the Kingston Schools Sport Partnership for a number of years now and today was another example of the great events that Sandra and her team put on.
A big well done to today’s winners, Corpus Christi Primary who will now progress on to represent the Kingston borough in this year’s London Youth Games. Good luck to all involved!”
