BIRKMYRE Rugby Club picked up their third trophy of the season with a victory in the Bishopton 7s tournament.

Their opening match was against Greenock A which resulted in a solid 27 points to 5 victory.

The second fixture was a far closer affair against a West 2 Select side consisting of players from various teams across the league. It was a high-scoring match which saw Birkmyre come out on top, 26-24.

The final group match was against Greenock B. This was another tough encounter however the Kilmacolm side were able to secure the victory 22-12.

This set up an exciting final against the hosts Bishopton. Both sides were evenly matched and opportunities were scarce.

Birkmyre took the lead with a try from Finlay Rayner in the corner with an assist from Cammy Marr. They then extended the lead when Callum Moglia broke from halfway and weaved his way across the line. This score was converted by David Cruickshank. Bishopton pulled a score back before the half, making it 12-5 at the break.

The second half was very closely contested. With three minutes left, Bishopton scored their second try to make it 12-10, having missed the conversion.

The last few minutes were all Bishopton however the Birkmyre held out well to lift the trophy.

Birkmyre had already claimed the league title and a win at the Helensburgh 7s in May.
