Queen of the 10’s

The ladies team have finally played their first official competitive match of rugby.  They joined forces with a few players from Helensburgh to compete in the Scottish Women’s Rugby ‘Queen of the 10’s’ tournament which was hosted this time by Lismore RFC. Due to the numbers of clubs having to play postponement games, there were only 6 teams in total attend the tournament.  Ardrossan played 3 matches against Cartha/Watsonians, Melrose, and Strathclyde Uni.  These were very tough opponents and with the most competitive match against Strathclyde who are of similiar grade.  But that didn’t deter the ladies who faced every game head on and improved with every half.  The tournament for Ardrossan was about the experience.  Everyone worked really hard, gained a ton of knowledge and boosted their confidence in the contact area whether it was tackling, rucking etc. Our one try scorer Emma Blackstock displayed a brilliant strong run in her new found size 11 magic boots. Also a stirling performance to our number 9 Jennifer Monaghan because she had to cover a lot of ground as well as learn scrum and line out!  And finally a special mention to our U15 player Shanice Mcknee and her sister who came to support.  
Everyone should be very proud of their performances. A strong foundation has been established to build, develop and progress on. Well done ladies.
