Gordonians will be looking to close out their set of preseason matches with a win in Inverurie this weekend against Garioch RFC. Last weekend had seen a young and inexperienced Gordonians XV facing a powerful Aberdeen Grammar 2nd XV. Although the score line did not reflect the effort put in by the young Gordonians side there were a great number of positives to be taken from the game. The home side competed well against the visitors who contained a number of players who had been Prem 1 regulars in years gone by. The pace, power and accuracy of Aberdeen Grammar from all areas of the park throughout the 80 minutes proved the difference between the sides but the young side can be very happy with the effort and commitment shown by every player against what will undoubtedly be one of the toughest opponents faced all season.
Gordonians attention will now turn to this weekend’s final preseason outing against Garioch in Inverurie. This weekend will see the returns of Gus Willis & Jimmy Lamont to Gordonians colours with both looking to add a cutting edge to the backline.
Kick off on Saturday is 2pm at Kellands Park, Inverurie.
