Sunday saw the last Madrascals rugby sides play their final tournament of the current season.

The home fixtures saw teams from Dundee, Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline and Howe compete.

It was a round robin format event with the points won tallied up at the end for a win, draw and loss.

The club with most points at the end of the tournament would be presented with the Fife and Forfarshire Cup.

P3 to P7 teams competed in the event and the p3s started the charge winning all their games.

The p3s have put in a lot of hard work with coach Bruce Birrell over the season so this was a fitting way to finish of the season.

The P4s continued to out shine all teams in sight, also winning all their games.

The youngsters have had an exceptional season and it’s hoped they can continue bringing home more silverware in the future.

The P5s also had a good day but were not quite able to complete a full house, recording three wins and a draw.

P6s put in a good performance bagging a couple of wins.

The club’s P7s finished of their last ever Madrascals tournament in glory by beating rivals Howe and a drawing with Kirkcaldy.

After all the points were tallied up at the end the Madrascals won the Fife & Forfarshire Cup by a massive 20 points.

A club spokesman said: “This was a great way for the P7s to say their final farewell to the mini section.

“The P7s have contributed a lot to the club over the years and had a very successful tour over to Ireland in the Easter holidays.

“Ron and Jen Smart were responsible for the organisation of the tour, and have also put in much time and effort over the years with coaching and catering, so a big thank you from the whole club, you will be sadly missed.

“Also a big thank you to the other P7 coaches Seonaid Turnbull, Pat Headon and Stephen Mercer.

“The Madrascals wish all the P7 players all the best when they move up to the Blues.

“Also, we’d like to wish a good luck to Ellen Caton, the only female P7 player who is hoping to continue her rugby career training at St Andrew University.”
