Submitted by Ian Nicol
3rd September 2002
After the recent meeting held in the St Clair it has emerged that 13 teams will contest this seasons RMC sevens league.
The major talking point is the absence of Thurso Pentland one of the original teams to join the league.
No representative turned up at the meeting and no one has called a committee member to express interest.
The 13 teams who are taking part are:
Ashes, Thurso Thistle, Acks, Castletown, Dounreay Workshops, Sharks, Top Joes, John O'Groats, RWE NUKEM, Dynamo T.J.'s, Arctic Thistle, Young Guns and Strokes FC.
With 13 teams it has been agreed to play Thursday & Monday for the first four weeks to avoid a fixture congestion at the end of the league. It also means that each team will have 2 "rest" days when they do not have a fixture.
The opening fixtures on Thursday 12th September show last seasons champs Ashes kick off their defence of the title against league newcomers Dynamo T.J.'s RWE NUKEM have been thrown in at the deep end with a fixture against Acks while Young Guns face other newcomers Arctic Thistle. Workshops play Castletown in what is arguably the game of the night while Thurso ThistleThistle take on Sharks, John O'Groats face Top Joes and Strokes FC have a free week.
