President’s message- Ardrossan vs. Caithness RFC, Saturday 30th November 2019
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Caithness RFC, and their supporters to Memorial Field for today’s Tennent’s National League Division 3 game. It’s a mighty long trip, as we experienced at the beginning of the season, so a big thank you to all those who have made the effort to travel.
We have now played all of our opponents once in the league and we are now at the stage of return fixtures. In our first game of the season, we travelled up to Caithness and ground out a good bonus point win. Since then, we continued in that good form but faultered recently. Last week’s win against West was much needed and a good win. We will hope to follow that up with another victory this week to keep up the pressure on those at the top of the table.
For Caithness, the first half of the season has been a struggle. Given our first game against them, that has surprised me, but with a good win last week versus Perthshire, this will have given them some confidence and encouragement for this week’s game. Whatever the result, I would like to wish Caithness a safe trip home and all the best for the rest of the season ahead.
I would like to thank our match sponsors for the game today, McLaughlin Construction and DM Hall for their continued support, and to Danny McGreish for sponsoring today’s match ball. Thanks again, it is greatly appreciated and the club is very grateful to all of our sponsors for their support.
With Christmas coming up it becomes a busy time for everyone with shopping and celebrating. On Saturday 21st December we are hosting a Christmas Party. It’s sure to be a joyous night, with festive cocktails, and disco and karaoke as entertainment. It would be great to see a good number down and enjoy a festive drink with friends. Tickets are £5 and can be purchased behind the bar or by contacting myself.
