I would like to extend a warm welcome to Berwick RFC and their supporters to Memorial Field for the National League Cup game.
Berwick had a fantastic season just past, winning both the Tennents East Region League Division 1 and the National Shield, and have thus gained promotion to National 3 this season. Although this is the first game of the season, this game today will possibly provide both teams with some insight to what challenges lie ahead for the coming season. Whatever the result today, I would like to wish Berwick all the best for the season ahead.
For Ardrossan Academicals, we are hoping to build on last season’s 3rd placed finish and push for promotion. We have a couple of new additions to the squad and we are pleased at retaining the remainder of the team, so we feel we are in a good place to achieve our aims for the season. Our preseason has been good with excellent wins over Ayr and Irvine and we had a really good training session at Inverclyde sports centre last Saturday, which we are hoping to use for training and potentially a game over the season.
I would like to thank our match sponsors for the game, Jas Campbell and Co., Right Cars and Sunnyside Nurseries for their continued support, and to Willie Gibson for sponsoring today’s match ball. It is greatly appreciated and the club is very grateful to all of our sponsors for their support. Our sponsors’ day is September 14th versus Perthshire and I would like to invite all sponsors, including ball sponsors, to this, starting from 1:30pm for a 3pm kick off.
I would also like to thank our members for their continued support and it would be great to see you all down supporting all sections of the club this season.
As you know the Rugby World Cup is starting on September 20th and the bar has an extended license for early morning kick offs. You will see below one of the games highlighted with breakfast + a pint for £5. Scotland also plays their first game on Sunday 22nd at 8:45am versus Ireland. 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.
