Minis and Micros
This weekend Ardrossan hosted Carrick RFC’s and Uddingston RFC’s mini and micro sections with a total of 80 kids playing for Accies across both sections. The micros played Carrick twice and played a number of Accies v Accies games which were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The p4/5s combined into two large squads and played a number of matches against both opponents and didn’t lose a single game. The p4s particularly impressed in their first ever attempt at “tackle rugby”. The p6/7s combined squad also had a successful day at the office losing only one of their five games. A massive thanks to the army of parents who contributed to the running of the tournament.

The U13s had an early start on Sunday with their game against Birkmyre having an 11am kick off. Due to a lack of numbers the match was played as a training game over five periods of ten minutes which allowed the boys to put into practice everything they’ve worked on over the past few weeks of training. Thanks to Birkmyre for lending us some of their players and making the most of the game.

The U14s travelled to Kilmarnock for their 2nd game of the season. Unfortunately with high winds forecast the team had to travel without the players from Arran and only managed to get a squad of 11 together. However, between the two teams, we managed to get a 13 a side game going. The match itself was a masterclass in attacking rugby with 14 tries being scored in total. The Accies side showed a great level of maturity and teamwork to come out 30-12 winners.

The U18s travelled all the way to Oban to play their 2nd league match of the season off the back of a narrow defeat to Cartha QP last weekend. In a close affair the physicality and aggression, of an Accies side who’d worked on their ball carrying at training this week, was tested. Unfortunately with Oban leading not long after half time our very own Matthew Lee suffered a serious arm injury and the game was abandoned. The spoils went to Oban but both teams came together to clap off their injured team mate and showed a great level of camaraderie and sportsmanship. Get well soon Matthew.
