We will have a few stalls set up around the club:

There will be a bbq with burgers on sale for £1

A stall from PSL to let you view and try on the kit on offer and place orders for this season

There will also be a stall from our sponsor Steps Podiatry.

The Accies Ladies, U13’s and U14’s will also be playing. Kick-0ff 2pm, please come along and support the teams.

This weekend’s fixtures

We have a full weekend of rugby at Memorial Field this weekend as all our senior teams return to league action after the autumn internationals. With three home matches on Saturday, we’re hoping to pack the club to help drive the players on in what will be hotly contested matches. Full list of fixtures below.

If you are looking for a way to spend your Saturday night then why not join us for Karaoke. The doors open at 6pm and it is completely free, so come down and let’s have another great night in the club.

Rugby Development Term 1.

The first term focus from the Development team was aimed at the growth of playing numbers in players and team for the local Academies. With Ardrossan and Largs Academy competing in the Ayrshire Tier 4 Conference this meant they were playing games at S1, S2 and U16 age groups with scheduled midweek fixtures each week. Auchenharvie became the new Cashback School of Rugby for the next 3 years and initial uptake has been pretty good with current numbers up at round 20 signed up participants. Ardrossan Schools (Ardrossan, St Matthews and Largs Academy) entered the national competitions combined at U16 and U18 age groups to provide a more competitive platform in this competition while playing as their own School for Conference Rugby.

Summary:

Ardrossan Academy  – Played 4 Fixtures at T4 Conference (U13/14 and U16) versus Ayr Academy, Garnock Academy, Girvan Academy and Irvine Royal Academy

Largs Academy – Played 4 Fixtures at T4 Conference (U13, U14 & U16) versus Auchinleck Academy, Cumnock Academy, Kyle Academy and Belmont Academy

Auchenharvie Academy – Played first fixture (U13) versus Queen Margaret

St Matthews Academy – No games played.

Arran High School – No games played, arrangements have been made for two games to be played October/November.

Ardrossan Schools – Both U16 and U18 squads are into the National Bowl QF’s awaiting their opponents.

Girls Rugby – Has been slow getting fixtures played, but Largs Academy have 20+ girls regularly training at the School, Arran High producing good numbers for training and Auchenharvie now having 5 girls signed up for SoR. Fixtures are a must for Term 2.

Largs Academy “Community Work Day” at Ardrossan RFC

On Monday, Rugby pupils from Largs Academy arrived sharpish in the morning for their days work as part of the Schools #communityday where pupils from the School would take part helping various areas/clubs/charities etc in the Largs Community. The pupils, or players  as we like to call them helped our Development Officer organise the various storages spaces in the Club which have collected much rubbish over the season. They also timed it nicely that the day they chose also happened to be the same day a skip arrived at the Club for the rubbish collated from the Current #OurClub project for the Bar and Lounge area.

The pupils worked very hard for a number of hours at the Club wasting little time or effort earning their games of TartanTouch and burgers at lunch time!

Massive thank you to all the players, Largs Academy and their staff for organising such a worth while programme! Look forward to next year! https://twitter.com/ArdrossanRFC/status/866692422755127296
