'Flying Scott' takes BT Try of the Season Award
At last night's Scottish Rugby Club Awards Dinner, Scott Bickerstaff collected the Brigadier Frank Coutts Memorial (BT) Try of the Season following his score against Edinburgh Accies in BT National League Division 1.
Scott's effort was one of eight BT Try of the Month's considered in a public vote and then by an expert panel who made the final selection of the best try scored in all leagues during season 2016/17.
For Scott's score, those on the touchline were able to enjoy another Purple and Gold magic moment from a team effort that provided an attacking opportunity which Scott executed to perfection.
This was one of 19 league tries scored by Scott during the campaign.
Marr Rugby is all about providing the opportunity for players, coaches and supporters to participate in and enjoy high quality rugby played at the highest level.
It's worth reflecting that in season 2016/17 Marr Rugby's 1st XV took the title and on the way scored 131 league tries averaging 41 points per match. Their nearest competitors scored 113 tries averaging 34 points per match. As well as Scott's 19 tries, the club took the second and third place for top try scorers with Conor Bickerstaff (19) and Ben Johnston (18).
Marr Rugby's 2nd XV had an even better match score ratio - scoring on average 52 points in each match whilst conceding on average only seven points.
Marr Rugby's senior sides are delivering a standard of rugby that is exciting and enjoyable. The players commitment, supported by top class coaching is achieving performances and results that are well deserved and helping to make history for Marr Rugby as well as providing a model for success that others can aspire to.
With the 1st and 2nd XV's gaining promotion, season 2017/18 presents Marr Rugby with another opportunity to allow players, coaches and supporters to participate in and enjoy high quality rugby played at the highest level.
The future continues to be bright...
