Match Report: Under 13A&B Girls Hockey Craigclowan v Belhaven

U13A: (28.09.16) A much improved performance from the team today.  The pace was higher and the passing was more accurate.  Craigclowan enjoyed a lot of the possession in the first half and capitalised on this, opening the scoring early.  More chances came and went as the Belhaven defence closed - Read more...

Match Report: Under 13B Boys Rugby Craigclowan v Merchiston

Match Report: U13 Girls Hockey - Craigclowan v Ardvreck

(21.09.16) In contrast to last week’s opening game of the season, the under 13 team made hard work of their encounter with Ardvreck.  The linked play, good movement and accurate passing we saw last week was missing as we tried to play through players and work on our own instead of a team.  A - Read more...
