President’s message- Ardrossan vs. Greenock Wanderers RFC, Saturday 19th October 2019
I would like to extend a warm welcome to John Black, the players of Greenock Wanderers RFC, and their supporters to Memorial Field for today’s Tennent’s National League Division 3 game.
Greenock Wanderers have had a tremendous start to the season, winning all of their games and are currently top of the league, leading us by a single point. They will come here looking to continue that run and will be hoping to get a result over us, in what, we know, will be a difficult game. We have had some difficult matches with Greenock over the years, and as I said, we fully expect that again today. Whatever the result, I would like to wish Greenock all the best for the season ahead.
We, Ardrossan, had a very good bonus point away win at Strathmore last week to continue our fine start to the season. We have managed to obtain try bonus points in all of our league games so far, which is superb and credit to Rory and the players for producing the expansive and entertaining rugby that we are playing. Hopefully this will be on full show again today. Unfortunately we still have a number of players missing through injury and work commitments, but it’s great that we can turn to the experience of players like Allan Wilson to fill in.
I would like to thank our match sponsors for the game today, Gallagher Pharmacy and Coast to Coast Travel for their continued support, and to Lucas McFarlane 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.
Today we welcome past players to the club for a get together. It’ll be great to see so many familiar faces back at the club and I hope you and all of our supporters enjoy the day and hopefully we’ll see you again throughout the rest of the season.
As highlighted below, the annual Halloween Party is on November 2nd, tickets £5. The effort made is always phenomenal and it would be fantastic to see high numbers for what is always a great night. Tickets are available through Laura Lamont.
