Rugby: Glynn men see off Academy

Larne Rugby Club’s pre-season kicked off on Saturday with a 22-19 victory over Qualifying 1 outfit, Academy.

A squad of 30 players were used in what was a fantastic team performance. New coach Laurence Kelly was pleased with the result but believes there is plenty of room for improvement.

The squad travel to Scotland this weekend to take on Wigtownshire in their annual contest.

Larne’s 100th Anniversary Gala Dinner takes place on Saturday, September 15 at the Clarion Hotel. Anyone interested in booking a place or a table, is asked to contact a club member soon.
