It was an all-round disappointing day for Carrick, in a game where it was all at stake. There was only one team in the game for the first half hour, and it was the visitors.
After a tremendous first session of rugby, the team would have a tough first test in the new session. Although this match was by definition a friendly, the events two weeks before in cup tie, meant this game would be anything but.
Kilmarnock of West 1 were the visitors to Carrick of West 2 in the quarter final of the Regional Shield match on Saturday with the match sponsor being Daily Road Stores, Maybole.
It was a grey dreich day with rain threatening at Cumbernauld on Saturday and that about sums up Carrick’s performance. The faithful ‘Rick support, on the touchline, was put through misery as their team stuttered its way through an error strewn game with the possibility that the game could be lost.
Saturday was a clash of the top four in the league. Top team, Garnock were away to second top, Oban, whilst fourth top, Carrick, were at home to third top, Cambuslang.
Saturday’s match at Lochshore, Kilbirnie, was a clash between the top two teams in the West Regional second division. It was a match which produced, at times, a quality of rugby which could have been displayed at much higher level in Scottish rugby.
