Was it a hangover from last week's defeat from GHK or was it the cold miserably day with wet underfoot conditions that produced a sub-standard performance from the men from Maybole. Within two minutes Carrick were seven points down.
A slightly under strength Carrick team travelled to Annan last Saturday to take on a young, in the main, Annan side. It was a dreich miserable day with the strong wind blowing down the Annan ski slope.
On the last occasion these two sided met Carrick was still in the game at half time but on Saturday last, in front of a big home support, by half time any chance of a Carrick upset had been blown away.
