President’s message- Ardrossan vs Carrick RFC, Saturday 21st September
I would like to extend a warm welcome to Carrick RFC and their supporters to Memorial Field for the Tennent’s National League Division 3 game.
In the first league game of the season, a couple of weeks ago, Carrick had a narrow away defeat and then, unfortunately, did not have a game last week as Caithness could not fulfil the fixture. I’m sure they will be disappointed with that, and will looking forward to get back to playing and will be hoping to get a result over us. Whatever the result today, I would like to wish Carrrick RFC all the best for the season ahead.
For Ardrossan, we are hoping to build on a super start to the season with 3 good victories in league and cup. To obtain bonus points in our first 2 league games is very pleasing and we will be hoping to continue this today. Hopefully, we will see some players returning, which will also be good news for the 2nd XV.
Our 2nd XV are away to East Kilbride/Cambuslang and our Ladies play Greenock away. Good luck to those teams and all youth teams this weekend.
I would like to thank our match sponsors for the game today, Central Car Auctions, Paul Stevenson Funeral Directors and J.D Bannatyne and Campbell for their continued support, and to David Hogarth 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. Scotland also plays their first game tomorrow, Sunday 22nd at 8:45am, versus Ireland, which is an extremely important game in a tough pool. 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.
