Biggar got some silverware under their belts early in the 2017/18 season when they won the Moffat 10s at the weekend.

The men from Hatreemill beat Newton Stewart in the final and were crowned the 2017 tournament winners. The quiach winners were Stewartry who beat Dumfries Saints.

A Moffat club statement said: “Moffat RFC would like to thank all of the travelling teams, the referees, first aiders, kitchen and BBQ helpers, the supporters and the spectators for coming along to support them – and for sitting out the showers!

“The party continued late into the evening with live music, inflatables, food, drinks and entertainment on the pitch.

“We’ve received some lovely feedback from those in attendance and we’ll take all feedback on board for next year’s event which will be on August 11.

“The event was sponsored by Belhaven, Buccleuch Arms Hotel, Annandale Estates, R C Dalgliesh, Burcote wind, Neil Currie, The Stag Hotel, John Spence & Sons, Brae Farm, Cost 2 Build, and Jog Moffat – a huge thank you to all of our sponsors for their continued support of the event.

“The final and the biggest thank you of all goes to the hard working dedicated core team who prepared the grounds and clubhouse for the event and the tiny crew that put the whole event together for the benefit of everyone who played or attended.

“No job was too big or small and despite working flat out all week they still turned up, put in a full shift on the day and got the job done. Without them the club would simply not function.”

The next big event at the club is the ‘Annual Family Funday’ on September 9, it starts at noon followed by the first home game for the senior team kicking off at 3pm.
