Team Manager: Irena Cheyney


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.


Glasgow Touch at the Euros

A number of Glasgow players have recently returned from Paris where they were part of the Scotland squad competing in the European Championships, 10-13th July 2008. Victor Francisco Suarez played in the 2nd placed Mens Masters, Douglas Johnson in the Mens Open, Nicola Jobson Womens Open and Nikki Walker Womens 30s. Congratulations to Donna Kirisome and Damien Richardson who were part of the successful Mixed Open team who brought home the gold!


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.


Glasgow takes it home from Edinburgh

At the Trinity Accies tournament in Edinburgh last weekend, a Glasgow Lions side took the outright trophy, scoring 15 touch downs and conceding only three in five games. Sources close to Victor say that he may even have enjoyed himself! Victory by a side from outside Edinburgh was not expected with the Lions players now able to avail themselves of a free pass to an Edinburgh gym.

Congratulations again to Doug Macrae, Jenny Nolan, Jennifer Freytag, Maura Lyons, Ruth Cameron, Ruth Wallace, Andrew Armstrong, Fraser Maclleland, Dave Young, Stephen Little, Chris Webber and Victor Francisco Suarez.
