League title glory for Ross High

Have your say

Ross High were crowned BT East Three champions on Saturday after they won and nearest rivals Broughton lost.

Having missed out on promotion last season when St Boswells and Liberton moved up the ranks, the Tranent side have been determined since day one of the campaign to make sure they finished in top spot.

At the weekend they travelled to take on Queensferry and put in a great showing to come out on top 63-0.

With Broughton going down 17-10 at Gala YM, it means that with two matches left they cannot overhaul Ross High’s points total.

The men from Tranent were then handed the trophy by Scottish Rugby representatives to start the celebrations.

The triumph is their second of the season after they picked up the BT East Regional Bowl in November.

Ross High president John Tinlin said: “It has been a good year for the club. We have been building over the last couple of years with the aim being promotion and this season the guys have been playing some good rugby.

“We were disappointed to lose the BT Bowl semi-final to Cumnock recently, but this was a good way to end the campaign.

“The great thing at the minute is that the majority of the players are around 20 or 21 and they will enjoy the higher division next year.”
