On Saturday 7th May two Guerillas teams gathered at Woodside for the Aberdeen Spring tournament. The activitymix Guerillas (the ‘A’ team) were looking to bag as many points as possible to add to our Aberdeen Touch Series (ATS) total and we also had enough players for a full second squad of activitymix Guerillas Killer Bees.

Of note for this event was the rise of the clubs, with half the teams taking part coming from just four clubs. Superhands and Leopards have been able to turn out two teams to a number of recent events. However this was also the first away tournament that Stirling Touch has sent two teams to and Guerillas registered two teams in a weekend tournament for the first time in some time.

The ‘A’ team’s first game was against Superhands Academy. The method by which Superhands split their players between their two teams is always a mystery,  although there was speculation that their constitution mandates a minimum number of French speakers in each team. As it was the Academy team featured some of the more experienced players as the spine of the team, along with some newer faces. (more…)


We’ve had enough interest in the spring tournament on Saturday 7th May to register a second team. This is the first time we’ve been able to do this for a tournament early in the season and an indication of the growth in club numbers and the commitment of new players. Further good news is that with Mark coming runner-up in the Six Nations fantasy league this team entry comes free of charge! So well done Mark.

Still some spaces left for this tournament so if you haven’t already done so contact Senga to say you are available.
