Helensburgh Rugby Club’s 2019 fixture list draws to an end this Saturday with a Christmas cracker of a charity fixture at Ardencaple.

A Burgh social XV – coached by current skipper Cammy Kerr – will lock horns with a Lomond School Old Boys side on December 22, kicking off at 2pm.

It’s hoped that this Saturday’s match will end the year on an upbeat note for the Greens after the club’s first XV were forced to forfeit a match for the second time this season, due to insufficient players being available for the trip to Oban Lorne on Saturday.

It’s the second outing for Burgh’s second XV/social side, following a game against Bishopton last month, and allows those lads keen to keep playing rugby on an occasional basis to have a festive run-out.

The match is also being dedicated to former Lomond employees David and Angela Cameron, who now live in Canada.

Angela has motor neurone disease, and both club and school wanted to support a fund-raiser, which began in Canada, to help the couple.

A club spokesman said: “David used to play for Helensburgh, and I’m sure each of us will dig deep to raise as much money as possible on the day, including for the raffle which contains some tremendous prizes.”

Adam Hart, another ex-Lomond and Helensburgh player, will officiate, and there’s sure to be a big crowd of former pupils home for Christmas hoping to see their players avenge last year’s defeat to a Helensburgh XV.
