I would like to extend a warm welcome to Bob Lindsay, George Clunie , the players of Perthshire RFC and their supporters to Memorial Field for the Tennent’s National League Division 3 game.
In the first league game of the season, last week, Perthshire had a narrow home defeat to Greenock. I’m sure they will be disappointed with that result and will looking to bounce back from that and, so, we expect a tough game today against a team we know well from our encounters over the last few seasons. Whatever the result today, I would like to wish Perthshire RFC all the best for the season ahead.
For Ardrossan, we are hoping to build on a good start to the season with our victories over Berwick (National league cup) and away to Caithness (league). To obtain a bonus point was a great start to the season and it is hoped that we kick on from that. Unfortunately, we have lost a couple of players, Bruce Hunter and Euan Thomson, to injury in the first couple of games and I wish them a speedy recovery.
Today is our first sponsor’s day of the new season, which gives us a chance to thank all of our programme and ball sponsors for their support of the club. I would like to thank them for their continued support and hope that those that manage along enjoy the day and, most importantly, the game. It would be great to see you down throughout the season.
Our match sponsors for the game today are The Kandy Bar, Digby Brown and James Frew Ltd and our ball sponsor is Owen Phillips. Thanks again, it is greatly appreciated and the club is very grateful to all of our sponsors for their support.
As I mentioned in my message for the Berwick game, 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. This coincides with a home game against Carrick that day, so why not start early and enjoy your day at the club. 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.
