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.
Carrick Rugby Xmas Dinner Dance takes place on Sat 13th Dec at the Maybole Town hall. 7 pm for 7.30 pm start !!!
It was neither a breeze nor a gale that welcomed Carrick’s visitors, Newton Stewart to the Academy field last Saturday.
