Training Begins Again

A successful session took place last night with players training hard in their own ‘bubbles’ and following the socially distancing guidelines.

Danny Owenson, Sandy Watt and Paul Cunningham train last night.

This falls in line with Scottish Rugby's Return to Rugby Roadmap, where players currently are allowed to train in small groups in specific sections of the pitch.

Head Coach Graeme Paterson has been working alongside the Club’s Covid Co-Ordinator, Director of Rugby and Committee Members to ensure a safe return to rugby for all senior players and coaches.

Training at Pinkie Playing Fields

Paterson said "It's great to get back out on the training pitches last night albeit in much different situation to this time last year!! Lots of familiar faces and a few new ones as well including a good group of last years colts moving up to senior rugby which is great to see. The players and coaches worked really hard in their training groups and seemed to enjoy taking those first steps back to some form or normality. It was a really positive feeling coming off the pitches at the end that we are back on the road to playing again.

New Club Captain Danny Owenson also mentioned "It was obviously good to be back running about with the boys. A new normal of course with social distancing and the smaller groups, however I think that helps the players and the coaches with being in groups with your position it brings a bit of competitiveness to training. So yes a good start and hopefully get back to the old normal when safe to do so."

Training will continue to be in groups until Phase 4 which will be expected to be in place early August.
