On Saturday the 14th February Carrick Rugby host GHK in what could be a winner takes all promotion decider. This is a huge match for all at Carrick Rugby and we would like to have the biggest support we can muster.
Saturday’s match sponsor, Lang and O’Rourke, and ball sponsor, Under Armour, were certainly appreciated last Saturday at Maybole. The former for providing dug outs that kept both coaching teams dry in atrocious conditions.
Carrick’s local derby match against Kilmarnock was sponsored by two ex Carrick Players, Jim Cooper of Electro Installations and Michael Logan who also plied his trade with Kilmarnock.
In an Alan Caldwell sponsored match Carrick entertained Helensburgh last Saturday. Before the kick off, both teams observed a minute’s silence for Club member Neville Clark.
Considering the weather conditions en route to Oban the pitch was in near perfect condition. Winning the toss Carrick chose to play up the slope and into the breeze.
Lenzie is not an easy place to go and win especially if it is wet and so it proved to be. On a wet and windy day at Lenzie Carrick, full of Christmas spirit, gift wrapped a match which should have been won and donated it to the home side.
It was a grey windless day at Maybole last Saturday and it was a grey performance from the home outfit. If the Carrick faithful were looking for a similar purple patch performance produced at Garnock, in the previous encounter, they were sadly disappointed.
