Hawick RFC, the Greens, have the largest travelling support in the country, bringing joy to the hearts of club treasurers throughout Scotland as they see their biggest gate of the year when the Greens come to call. Attendance at Murrayfield for the Scottish Cup Final has been highest when Hawick are there, particularly when one of the town’s ‘junior’ sides may also be contesting the Bowl competition. Imagine the scene in spring 2005 when the Scottish Youth Cup Final was contested at Murrayfield between Hawick PSA and (the winners) Hawick Wanderers. Add the record of success of Hawick Albion in the Under 16 competition and the future of this sport in the town seems bright. In fact, think back over all the activities mentioned above. Sport occupies a prominent place in the life of the town, and its future generally seems bright. Which activity are you going to get involved in?
