President’s message- Ardrossan vs. Peebles RFC, Saturday 26th October 2019
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Peebles RFC, and their supporters to Memorial Field for
today’s National League cup game. This is the 1 st round proper, after our preliminary round win over
Peebles have had a very good start to the season, sitting 3 rd in National League 2. After a defeat last
week at Newton Stewart, Peebles will be looking to get back to form and progress in the cup. We are
certainly expecting a difficult game as this will be a step up for us, playing against a team sitting well
in the league above us.
We, Ardrossan, had another very good bonus point win at home to, then league leaders, Greenock
last Saturday, continuing our superb start to the season, and putting us top of National 3. It was a
terrific game and, again, we played some tremendous rugby. Hopefully this will be on full show again
today, although, unfortunately we may have a number of players missing through injury and work
I would like to thank Stephen McAllister for sponsoring today’s match ball. Stephen is a past

sponsors for their support throughout the season, it is hugely appreciated and the club is extremely
Unfortunately our annual Halloween Party had to be cancelled. Apologies to those looking forward
to an excellent night and, in particular, Laura and Stuart Lamont and the Mackie family, who had
taken time to organise the event. We will have to make up for it next year!
