Squads for 2024 Inter-District Championships announced

The squads for all four districts competing in the Inter-District Championship across March and April have today been confirmed by the coaching teams.

This season, the four districts – Edinburgh, Glasgow & The West, Caledonia Reds and the South – will play in a round robin format. The fixtures are as follows:

Edinburgh v The South – Stoneyhill, Musselburgh, Saturday 23 March (kick off 3pm)
Glasgow & the West v Caledonia Reds – Braidholm, Glasgow, Saturday 23 March (kick off 3pm)

Edinburgh v Caledonia Reds – Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, Saturday 30 March (kick off 3pm)
The South v Glasgow & the West – Poynder Park, Kelso, Saturday 30 March (kick off 3pm)

Glasgow & the West v Edinburgh – Braidholm, Glasgow, Saturday 6 April (kick off 3pm)
Caledonia Reds v The South – Canal Park, Inverness, Saturday 6 April (kick off 3pm)

Caledonia Reds Head Coach Colin Sangster said: “We are delighted to announce our 32 man squad for the forthcoming Inter district championship.  There are quite a few returning players from last year, however we have included several new players this season, from all over the region, giving them an opportunity to show what they can do at this level.

“To be included in the squad is a reward for high levels of performance at club level, and it’s up to the players to push on and challenge themselves in the competitive environment of district rugby.”

Edinburgh District Head Coach Bob McKillop said: “We are very excited about the next few weeks – whilst all coaches and players loved the IDC experience last season we walked away feeling Edinburgh’s performance had been well below potential.

“We’ve had some good review sessions with key players and within the coaching team and will aim to put that right this year.  Rhys Davies did a superb job as captain last season, but we have decided to hand the reins to Charlie Brett who has been in superb form for Currie”.

The South Head Coach Matty Douglas said: “Selection has been extremely difficult this season with the quality of players that were put forward from each club.  There are some very good players who have just missed out on selection which demonstrates how competitive this seasons squad is. However, with the help of a selection committee and coaches input, we feel that we have a squad which can be very competitive and put us in a great place to win a championship 

“We feel we have a good balance of players from the region and I’m excited to see how this group apply themselves at this level and what we can achieve. It will be hard work to try and win a championship but it’s a challenge that I know the coaching group and the players are looking forward to.

“And I’m delighted to announce Shawn Muir as South captain for a second season. Shawn is a great leader on and off the park, and he will be aided by a number of senior players to help get the best out of everyone in the squad”.
