ALLAN Glen’s Rugby Football Club have worked in partnership with Active Schools over the last few months to increase participation in rugby for boys and girls.

The aim of the project was to provide children with rugby coaching in school and open up opportunities for the children to progress their skills at Allan Glen’s.

Due to the success of the coaching sessions from Mark Mooney (rugby development officer) in school, a ‘Mini-Rugby Festival’ took place at Allan Glen’s Rugby Club involving P6 and P7 pupils from St Matthew’s Primary in Bishopbriggs.

Patrick Finnon, Active Schools co-ordinator, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the rugby sessions in school and the festival has given them the opportunity to showcase their skills in a fun environment.”

Mr Mooney added: “It’s been great to see so many boys and girls take part and enjoy themselves.

“The work that we have done with Active Schools in the community has really increased knowledge of rugby and Allan Glen’s Rugby Club, and thank you to St Matthews’s Primary for all their help in the lead up to the festival.”
