Supporter of the week 2

 Second up is the hug Queen Alison McCormick.

FAVOURITE GROUND, BAR SCOTSTOUN, AND WHY
Allianz (StoneX) for their food trucks (sticky toffee pudding yum) and their fans singing "No Glasgow No party" along with us lol - and Lyon for their supporters club inside the stadium where I helped serve the beers and their fans are awesome, communication issues notwithstanding
BEST EXPERIENCE AT A GAME, MOMENT ETC., HOME OR AWAY?
Belfast final was amazing (if wet and cold!) a truly amazing day - but my definite favourite moment was getting a photo with our Simone Favaro *fans face with the increase in temp* at the last game of the season when he was leaving us
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A WARRIORS SUPPORTER?
A group of people who are friends whether they have met or not and having great times together win or lose but also the team and coaches are just fantastic with everyone as well, making sure to spend time with us after games and for the quiz nights etc
IF YOU WEREN'T A WARRIOR'S SUPPORTER, WHO WOULD YOU SUPPORT?
Had some great times with fans of various clubs which would swing it for me - Connacht fans were amazing and Lyon fans know how to party hard and were really welcoming 🙂
WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST DURING THESE TIMES?
I miss the games of course but I really miss seeing everyone - I live alone so it has been really hard. fair warning - i will be hugging EVERYONE whether I know them or not once we are able to get back together. I MISS HUGS!






Supporter of the week 1

 First up is the dynamic duo of Willie Richardson and Kirsti Hay.

FAVOURITE GROUND, BAR SCOTSTOUN, AND WHY
It would have to be Allianz Park (now StoneX Stadium), home of Sarries, for so many reasons but principally for the exceptional welcome we received there in 2017 in the Quarter Final. From the Fez Bar Beer and Curry night to the Olympic Bar and 4 pint bags of Sarries Ale. As a group the SSA are just a magnificent group of people. Returning in 2019 for the group game in 2019 was another fabulous occasion and just as memorable. Made so many lifelong friendships down there as well which is the name of the game. #RugbyFamily
BEST EXPERIENCE AT A GAME, MOMENT ETC., HOME OR AWAY?
This would have to be the Belfast Final, particularly the first try, the atmosphere was incredible and it was the culmination of several years of year on year improvement. To finally win the trophy was immensely satisfying and it was another great party weekend.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A WARRIORS SUPPORTER?
To be a Warriors supporter means being entitled to free travel on the biggest Party Bus in Scotland #WhateverItTakes
IF YOU WEREN'T A WARRIOR'S SUPPORTER, WHO WOULD YOU SUPPORT?
If we weren’t Warriors fans we’d still support Sarries or Connacht.
WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST DURING THESE TIMES?
The bit we miss the most is our Match Routine of going to Paesano Pizza before getting train then Clubhouse-Game-Clubhouse, meeting our many friends and bringing guests to Scotstoun. The social parts of the game are so important and makes for an experience which is more than a game.

A time to give and to care...
















The Autumn tests are complete for another year with a good showing from our Glasgow Warrior players past and present. It was great to see the support for Doddie and My Name 5 Doddie Foundation (https://www.myname5doddie.co.uk/) raising awareness of and money for MND research.  Next year the Autumn Tests will be in August prior to the World Cup.  Now we are back into the PRO14 with a bang!

It has felt like a while since we had a game at Scotstoun, but it was great to be back and see the boys in action. It was also Niko's 100th appearance as well as D'Arcy Rae's 50th appearance and Ruaridh Jackson's 100th start.  There was a fury of tries by Adam Ashe, Niko Matawalu, Callum Gibbins (Winner of the longest arm stretch to the line), Tommy Seymour, Rory Hughes and Niko Matawalu and as a result Cardiff couldn't match the pace, ferocity or creativity of the Warriors. The second half perhaps wasn't as fluid but what potential the boys have if they put together an 80 minute performance. 

The XVIth Warrior were in full voice supporting the team to keep to fortress Scotstoun and maintain our position at the top of the league. Let’s have more of the same on Saturday as Scarlets come to visit. Hopefully we are in for another strong performance from the boys ahead of rounds 3 & 4 of the Heineken Champions Cup!

As the XVIth Warrior we are also keen to support  initiatives and charities to give and care for others. Here are a few current examples -

  • Let's get behind the White Ribbon Campaign by signing the pledge in the clubhouse- “I pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.“ See more at https://www.whiteribbon.org.uk/

  • Lets raise some money for Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity (Official Charity partner of Glasgow Warriors) through our bake sale at the game on Saturday and our quiz night on Monday.  See more at  https://www.glasgowchildrenshospitalcharity.org/

  • Let's don those kilts and tartan trews as we celebrate St Andrew's Day
