President’s message- Ardrossan vs. Murrayfield Wanderers RFC, Saturday 5 th October
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Murrayfield Wanderers RFC and their supporters to Memorial Field for the Tennent’s National League Division 3 game.
Murrayfield Wanderers have had 2 good wins in a row, producing a very good home win versus Caithness last week. They will come here looking to continue that run and will be hoping to get a result over us, in what will be a difficult game. Whatever the result today, I would like to wish Murrayfield Wanderers all the best for the season ahead.
For Ardrossan, after a disappointing defeat last week in Fife, we are hoping to build on what has been a very encouraging start to the season. To obtain try bonus points in all of our league games so far is very pleasing and shows the expansive and entertaining rugby that we are playing. Hopefully this will be on full show today. Our injury list grows by the week but, hopefully, we will see some players returning soon, which will also be good news for the 2nd XV.
Our 2nd XV have struggled for games recently and are away to Strathaven and our Ladies play at home to Wigtownshire, after a fine first win for them last week away at Hamilton. Good luck to those teams and all youth teams this weekend.
I would like to thank our match sponsors for the game today, Seamill Hydro Hotel, Booth Welsh and Robertson Fine Foods for their continued support, and to Robert Erskine 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.
The Rugby World Cup has now kicked off and the bar has an extended license for early morning kick offs on Saturday and Sundays. It would be great to see people down at the club to enjoy the games, new and old faces, so please come along.
I hope you all have an enjoyable day and may the best team win.
