A finger buffet was on offer to ball sponsor G &T Security and match sponsor Pickles Agriculture Ltd before the match but it was the cordon blue desert of the match which was the highlight of the day. A feast of eight tries, for the Maybole side, in a demolition of promotion hopefuls Stewartry.Read More
On Saturday Carrick 1st XV hosted Clydebank on a sunny, warm day at Academy Fields. The side were keen to make up for last week’s poor performance and with the return of John Dewar and Gary Thomson Carrick were looking more like the side that defeated Stewartry in their first home game.Read More

Strathendrick were last week’s visitors to Maybole. The men from Fintry were still sampling the warm Ayrshire sunshine when within a minute they were seven points down.
Carrick U16s bounce back at home
Despite being awarded the points the previous week, the Carrick side were clearly aware they had to improve on their game performance from the previous week and as such raced off to a 19 point lead after just 10 minutes with tries from Aiden Strachan and Conner Barr.
Lucky escape for League points
Carrick started their West 2 South League campaign with a visit to Irvine. In a stuffy game Carrick found themselves 14-0 down at half time with two tries that came from either "sloppy defence" or unforced errors.
It was a poor start to the day. A mix up with the bus company meant that the journey to Oban began three quarters of an hour late. The journey was long and the bus arrived on time but last week’s team for some reason did not arrive in Oban.
Carrick Academy 1st XV 0-19 Kelvinside Academy
The Academy 1st XV kicked off their season with a tough opener against last season's Scottish Plate Semi Finalists Kelvinside. The first 20mins of the game were too and fro with Carrick kicking away a lot of possession and Kelvinside running strong only for manful defence by Carrick keeping the score at 0-0.
Carrick defeated an under strength Helensburgh side last Saturday by 31 points to 22. This was a big boost to the confidence of the Maybole team as their visitors, from the league above, had despatched them in the Shield competition, last season.
