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

The Maybole club took two teams to Inverleith Park, Edinburgh, to play their hosts Edinburgh Northern of East League 2.
In a beautiful, hot windless day the second team ran out convincing winners, scoring four tries to one. The first team in their last warm up match before the league programme begins scored six tries and conceded none.
Carrick travelled north to Aberdeenshire, last Saturday, to take on the Caledonian League 1 side, Ellon. The Maybole side had hoped to take to take a second XV as well but injuries and work commitments meant that only 28 souls of players, coaches and spectators finally made the trip. It was a voyage of discovery for Carrick as Ellon was once a National League 3 side but have dropped a level into their top Regional League.
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.
Carrick’s first league game in West 2 is on the 31st of August at Maybole. The visitors that day will be Stewartry who narrowly missed promotion last season. This, so early in the season, is a must win game if Coach Brown’s hope to be involved in the promotion race is realised.
