Some info from the 1st XV regular season...
The season for all senior sides at Myreside may have come to an abrupt end, but there were still some excellent performances and achievements across the whole club that deserve to be recognised.
And one man in particular, the amazing Dennis Carmichael, deserves credit when it comes to statistics.
Dennis first started volunteering at Watsonian Football Club in 1948 and has been involved with many different roles over many years since then, always bringing great diligence to each task.
Behind the scenes from 1990s he took over keeping the club statistics for all the club teams and players. Individual players are always interested in their own history at the club, so games played and tries and total points scored are kept by Dennis for all players.
Rugby at Myreside, and in general, has benefited greatly from the more than 60 years involvement as a volunteer by Dennis.
