It was almost two years ago to the day and on a similar perfect day for running rugby that Lenzie destroyed a very inexperienced young Carrick side. That year Lenzie was promoted to West 1 but Carrick’s young team recovered from that poor start and managed to finish a creditable fifth.Read More
We currently play out of Carrick Academy, which can be found on Kirkoswald Rd in Maybole and compete in the BT West League Division 1.
If you are interested in joining us for training you are more than welcome - whether looking for a game or just a bit of fitness, we train at Carrick Academy on Tuesday nights from 7.00 - 9.00pm. Please come to the changing rooms in the Community Wing, and bring along trainers as well as boots as we often train on the astro grass.
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.
The S2 side hosted a stuffy Hamilton College side on Saturday. In the true spirit of the game we gave Hamilton 2 players as they didn’t have a full side.
The unbeaten streak for Carrick continues. In a physical game it was the boys from Maybole who came out on top with a 36 points to 7 victory. It was Blair Waugh who opened the scoring after a long spell of possession, the opportunity fell to Blair out wide and after diving over the line the Try was given.
After a long and winding bus trip Carrick 1st XV arrived in Newton Stuart ready to take the field, or more accurately an uneven, park on a slope. The first 10 minutes saw both sides knocking on, resulting in a scrappy game. Angus Brown took the game by the scruff of the neck and to drive over with Fulton converting. 0-7.
In a tie usually dominated by Lenzie, it was a fantastic team performance that brought home a 50-14 win for the boys from Carrick.
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.
