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.
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.
Carrick s1s played well winning 12 tries to 3 with several different try scorers. The boys were slow off the mark and made a few mistakes when the game was in the early stages.
On Saturday our S2 side played Lenzie Academy. Last season we lost both matches to Lenzie so we knew it was going to be a challenging game. We started well playing as a team passing the ball out to the wings and making good yards.
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.
Saturday saw the U16 kick off their season against Kelvinside Academy.
The boys from Maybole started well with a quick score from Kyle Riggans, followed by another from captain Zander Howie.
Saturday 7th September
Carrick S1, S2/3 and U16 will all be away at Lenzie Academy. Meet at Surestart for 8.00am and returning at 12.45. Match fee is £3 and all pupils should wear school uniform.
The S1's showed up very excited for their first game against Kelvinside on Saturday. Kelvinside kicked off the match and for the first 10 minutes the game was very tight with some great tackling by the Carrick Boys. Kelvinside then scored some well worked tries out wide and were converted by their standoff.
