Spiders cast web over Newcastle

The touch season over in Scotland meant a first trip South of the border for Spider Pork to compete in the Sage rugby annual charity touch competition, raising money for the Percy Hedley foundation's 'Sport for All' appeal. Up against teams from Newcastle, London and Stirling, the Spiders/Lions combination showed once again that Glasgow Touch has taken a huge leap forward over the past year.

Winning group games against, Percy Park, Law Blacks, London Galaxy, and Mighty Atoms, set up a derby semi-final against Stirling's Flossie Possie where the Spiders proved to be the stronger of the Scottish participants. Meanwhile the other semi-final was contested between the local Newcastle teams, Percy Park and Blackadders, with Percy Park eventual victors after a drop-off. And so to the final, a repeat of the first game of the day, where Spider Pork proved deserving of the trophy running out 6 - 1 winners over Percy Park.
