Notes: Also known as the Rulewater Sevens. In 1931 a rugby XV match was held between Newmill and Bonchester. In 1933, the Kirkintilloch Herald of 17 May reports a local rugby club issued a player notice that the club ‘has received an invitation to the Bonchester Sports on May 20, and players are requested to practice regularly. The attractions of the opposite sex will not be taken as excuse for non-appearance. The attendance of late has been most unsatisfactory and the committee is convinced that the above is at the root of the trouble. Ladies, please take note and take your annual vacation between now and May 20.’ There was no Kirkintilloch side represented at 1933 Bonchester Sevens; leading to the assumption that the attractions of the ladies of Kirkintilloch put paid to the players’ appearance.
