Spiders cast web over Newcastle

The touch season over in Scotland meant a first trip South of the border for Spider Pork to compete in the Sage rugby annual charity touch competition, raising money for the Percy Hedley foundation's 'Sport for All' appeal. Up against teams from Newcastle, London and Stirling, the Spiders/Lions combination showed once again that Glasgow Touch has taken a huge leap forward over the past year.

Winning group games against, Percy Park, Law Blacks, London Galaxy, and Mighty Atoms, set up a derby semi-final against Stirling's Flossie Possie where the Spiders proved to be the stronger of the Scottish participants. Meanwhile the other semi-final was contested between the local Newcastle teams, Percy Park and Blackadders, with Percy Park eventual victors after a drop-off. And so to the final, a repeat of the first game of the day, where Spider Pork proved deserving of the trophy running out 6 - 1 winners over Percy Park.

Glasgow Touch Best of Scottish

With the season drawing to a close, Glasgow teams have seen out an excellent Summer of touch with a couple of fantastic results. Spider Pork finishing as the highest placed Scottish team in both the Barebacks Edinburgh Open (3rd behind London Otters and Bareback Exiles), and the Aberdeen Autumn tournament (2nd to the Cup Winners Dublin Sharks hailing from NZ). Meanwhile the Glasgow Lions added to their recent victory at Trinity Accies in taking home the tankard from Aberdeen.

At last years inaugural championships the Glasgow teams demonstrated that, despite Aberdeen and Edinburgh boasting significantly greater participation in the sport, they were an upcoming force in Scottish Touch. The mens and womens teams finished in 4th and 3rd respectively, and we wish both teams all the best in their attempts to improve on those positions this year.

Spiders Attack Glasgow's One Day Tournament

The Glasgow one day tournament was held this year under sunny skies (unlike last year!!!) on 2nd August 2008. Glasgow was happy to welcome teams from Edinburgh, Stirling and Newcastle as well as a number of Glasgow based teams. The competition was split into two pools as teams fought hard for the number one position. In the end the final was contested between the Edinburgh based Globetrotters and Glasgow's very own Spider Pork. It was a nail biting final with the Spiders coming through in the end to win the ‘awe inspiring’ cup by a final margin of 3-2.
